Marriage struggles constantly rob us of our joy in life.
We are here to combat life’s struggles by providing users an outlet to talk with someone who cares.
When we go through strife in our marriage it is easy to lose hope in everything. Often times we rely on our partner to satisfy our needs or desires, we believe through a relationship with them we are able to reach our goals. The problem we find is they have just as many problems or issues as we do and they don’t provide the comfort we so desperately seek. Both you and your spouse are broken individuals who were never designed to satisfy each other completely. The friction will always lead to marriage struggles and hurtful conversations. God designed marriage to more glory him, rather than us glorify ourselves. Love our spouse comes from a response of first feeling unconditional love from God. It is from this love that we are able to love and serve our spouse and not solely depend on them.
Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. – Philippians 2:3-8
