Marriage can be beautiful, if we work hard to make it beautiful. God created marriage as a gift of intimacy for a man and a wife to share. Marriage is full of exposure; exposure of vulnerabilities, flaws, and weakness. In the same aspect it exposes strengths, unknown giftings, and undiscovered passions. I can guarantee that marriage will get tough at some point. We as christians need to strive to seek God and his word when times get hard. These verses will keep the presence of God close and your eyes focused on the big picture.
