Show Notes

Marriage is in a mess, and therefore we are in a mess.

  • It is being re-defined (man-man, woman-woman, polygamy, polyamory)
  • It is being delayed (average age for marriage is now 30)
  • It is being broken up (almost 50% of marriages in the US end in divorce)

It’s not just marriage in general that’s in trouble; your own marriage may be in trouble. Or perhaps you’re unmarried but you’ve seen so many troubled marriages that you’ve decided, “Not for me." Or if you do go forward, you’re pessimistic about it working out long-term. 

Marriage is in a mess, and therefore we are in a mess. How can I have a happy marriage? In Colossians 3:18-19, God lets us in on the simple secret to a happy marriage.
