Sacred Marriage: What if God Designed Marriage to Make Us Holy More Than Make Us Happy? by Gary Thomas

Gary Thomas writes with beauty and wisdom about marriage.  The title says it all:  What if marriage is more about making us mature and complete and not as much about making me happy?  What if “happily ever after” is not only a myth, but is not even the point?  Marrying for love and choosing one’s spouse is a relatively new concept (approximately the last 3 centuries in the west), yet divorce is so common.  Mr. Thomas isn’t saying throw out love, but he counsels couples to grow a different kind of love – one born of trials and persevering working together toward something precious and irreplaceable.  I highly recommend this book!
