“And they lived happily ever after.”

Fairy tales make marriage sound so easy, don’t they? Most of us enter marriage with expectations for the relationship and how our spouse should act. When these expectations aren’t met, we easily become frustrated and disappointed.

When it comes to expectations for marriage, the best place to look is to the one who created marriage: God. God designed marriage to be between one man and one woman for life. The symbol of Jesus Christ as the groom and the church as the bride demonstrates what our expectations of marriage should be: loving, serving, forgiving, and sacrificing for one another.

No matter how good or bad things are, your marriage is still worth fighting for. Connect with us to learn how to start fighting for the marriage God wants you to have.
