Why Marriage Is Difficult | Part 4

Being Married To A Different Person

While this may seem fairly obvious, it’s amazing how we fail to realize it on a day to day basis. We so easily forget that our spouse doesn’t react or think like we do. In fact there are times we are shocked by it. We are different personalities, genders, raised in different homes and most of the time we marry our opposite. This can make marriage difficult when our expectation is that our spouse will react or respond to things the way we do.

For this reason we have to put work into a marriage. It takes time and effort to truly know someone. Even then we must be willing to give each other grace and be willing to lay down self for the other person.

Listen to today’s podcast for more.

Marriage In Our Modern Culture

Today’s culture creates a world of complex issues for marriage. On one hand because of technological advances we can gain access to many types of advice on marriage. We also have tools to communicate with each other instantly through many avenues. Both of these can be a blessing and a curse. We live today constantly distracted. It’s no longer just TV that is vying for our attention. Now we have all forms of social media and gaming at our fingertips. Social media brings up a whole new level of boundaries to discuss within the marriage. Click here to listen to podcast devoted to social media and marriage.

What do we do? In order to protect your marriage we need to make sure that we are setting aside time unplugged to focus on our spouse. Set aside time for communication. Make sure to make your marriage a priority in today’s culture with distractions pulling at us from every angle.

Marriage Mirrors Our Relationship With God

One of the beautiful things about marriage is that one of it’s many purposes is to emulate the relationship between God and the church. The church is referred to the bride of Christ many times through scripture.   Because of this our marriages are under attack. The enemy knows that an easy way to immobilize a family or Christian leader is to take down the marriage. Again this is such an important topic we have spent a week-long series on placing boundaries around your marriage to protect it. Click here to see that series.

As always listen to today’s podcast for more.

Expectations

We live in a culture today that, because of all of the resources available, marriage should be a breeze. We have access to movies about relationships and tons of books from fiction to self-help. We can text, talk and message each other constantly. We even have the internet as a constant source of information on the subject. So in this day and age, why is marriage so difficult? Why is the divorce rate so high? There are many reasons that we will explore this week ranging from reasons like the fact that many of us haven’t seen marriage done well, to the constant distraction of the world around us.

The reason we explore today is expectations. We all enter marriage, know it or not, with expectations of what it will be like. When those aren’t met we can feel disillusioned and hurt. This is such an important topic that we spent an entire week long series fleshing it out. For that series click here.

Check out today’s podcast for more on how our expectations impact our marriage.
