“And they lived happily ever after.”

The fairy tales make marriage sound so easy, don’t they? We enter marriage with high expectations for the relationship and for each other. But when our expectations aren’t met, we quickly grow disillusioned and disappointed.

The best person to set expectations for marriage is the one who created marriage. God designed marriage to be between one man and one woman for a lifetime. There’s no better picture of God’s grace toward us and Jesus’ sacrifice for us than two people committed to loving, serving, and forgiving one another for their whole lives.

No matter how good or bad things are, your marriage is still worth fighting for. If you’re not sure where to start, use the button below to connect with our Care Team. Or, keep reading to learn about how God designed marriage to work.
