Whether married, single, divorced, thinking about getting married, or hoping we could find someone to marry, all of us can identify with the pictures above.
Everyone has an opinion about what marriage is and how areas like who does what, romance, roles, sexuality, and communication should work. We know what they are supposed to be, at least in our heads, but is that realitic or based on reality? Is what we see growing up, or the pieces we remember of our parents relationship, marriage? What about scenes from The Vow, The Notebook, Hallpass? Is that marriage?
We get the idea that marriage should be filled with endless romance between a couple that is committed to one other to the end. Or, the idea that marriage is about what you want, when you want it. Making the relationship consist of whatever you can receive with giving as little as possible.
If someone asked you the question, "What is the point of marriage?" do you know what you would say?
Come join us as we explore the answer to that question at Revolution Church on March 10 & 17.
