A marriage can be beautiful and leave a lasting, positive legacy for generations. But it can also be incredibly hard and painful, leaving deep wounds. Is there some secret to a good marriage?? The secret is: marriage tells a greater story. The relationship between a husband and wife is supposed to tell the gospel story of the relationship between Christ and the church. Only when your marriage tells a greater story—when you see that your marriage involves you but is not primarily about you—will you have the power to overcome pain and conflict, to stay faithful to one another, and to enrich your relationship, even the good times. This is what discovering marriage is all about.
