Making marriage work
Summary: The Bible tells us to “take pleasure in the wife of your youth” (Proverb 5:18). Don’t you find it astonishing that God had to provide this guidance nearly 3,000 years ago? You know what it tells me? It tells me that marriage has always had its challenges. The calendar changes but human nature not so much. Nearly 50% of all marriages in our country end in divorce and the statistics are not much different between evangelicals and those who profess no faith.
