In today's society, people have been taught to have unreasonable expectations about their marriages. A spouse that is perfect, and who will fulfill all your needs and never hurt you. And a marriage that is also devoid of a relationship with God. These marriages are built on a corrupted foundation and will quickly fail. But, a marriage that is built on love, forgiveness, kindness and understanding will last forever. Especially if it is also built on a relationship with our heavenly Father.
