A good marriage is not something you find, it is something you work for.
We want to get the largest portion of our life’s fulfillment from our relationship with our spouse. That’s asking too much.
Much of the dissatisfaction we experience in marriage comes from expecting too much from it.
If the purpose of marriage was simply to enjoy an infatuation and make me “happy,” then I’d have to get a “new” marriage every two or three years. But if I really wanted to see God transform me from the inside out, I’d need to concentrate on changing myself rather than on changing my spouse.
