5 Myths About Marriage | David Paul Tripp


As luck would have it (yes I know, there’s no such thing as luck), I ran into this post just after I posted my last post.  David Tripp raises some excellent points. Enjoy!

Myth #1: Marriage will rid you of your sin.

Most of the troubles we face in marriage are not intentional or personal. In most marriage situations, you do not face difficulty because your spouse intentionally did something to make your life difficult. Yes, in moments of anger that may happen. But most often, what is really happening is that your life is being affected by the sin, weakness, and failure of the person you are living with. At some point, you will be selfish. In some situation, you will speak unkindly. There will be moments of jealousy, bitterness, and conflict. You will not avoid this, because you are a sinner and you are married to a sinner.
