Marriage: What did you expect?

  Get Directions

What did you expect?

Somehow, someway, every marriage will become a struggle. If you want to enjoy a beautiful, life-long relationship, you will need more than romance. You will need something deeper than shared interests and mutual attraction. According to best-selling author and marriage expert Dr. Paul David Tripp, you need realistic expectations, and you need radical commitments. Most importantly, you need grace. Learn from Dr. Tripp as he challenges you to look into the mirror of God’s Word and see yourself with clarity. When you reach that level of honesty, you’ll experience beautiful blessings in your marriage.

“Everyone’s marriage morphs into something they didn’t intend it to be. At some point you need something sturdier than romance. You need something deeper than share interests and mutual attraction. You need changed expectations, you need radical commitments, and most importantly, you need grace.”

– Paul David Tripp
