Men and women are different. While this fact shouldn’t surprise anyone, we often feel blind-sided by the tensions and frustrations that these differences produce in our marriage. Has God truly designed marriage to be a constant struggle between two different and deficient people? Of course not!
Paul writes that marriage is a “mystery” because two people unite to become one better person in Christ. For this mystery to be realized, we must understand the roles and responsibilities God has established for this new and better person. Filling these roles helps us fulfill the God-given purpose of marriage - to know and show the love of Jesus Christ. As husband and wife, we truly can be better together!
“Two are better than one…” – Ecclesiastes 4:9
