Marriage, according to Scripture, will always involve two flawed people living with each other in a fallen world. Yet, in pastor Paul Tripp's professional experience, the majority of couples enter marriage with unrealistic expectations, leaving them unprepared for the day-to-day realities of married life. This unique book introduces a biblical and practical approach to those realities that is rooted in God's faithfulness and Scripture's teaching on sin and grace.

This is probably the best marriage book I've read to date. The premise is any issue or problem you have with your spouse is just a way for God to work in YOUR life. Sometimes a tough pill to swallow, but very true. ( )
