31 Days to a Fruitful Marriage Day Ten: Marriage is More Than a Partnership

 
Some days, a marriage can feel like two people, working equally together, for the common good, overcoming all obstacles together. Other days, it feels like it's barely holding on by a thread. Is marriage really a partnership every day? Or is it two people, doing the best they can, which some days looks better than other days?
 
I personally feel like marriage isn't always an equal give and take, and it is certainly more than just a business partnership. Marriage was meant by God to glorify Him and gave us the other person to help us walk through this life in God's plan for our lives. We seem to forget that fact sometimes. We lean on the other person to always help us when we aren't strong, but it doesn't always work perfectly in that regard. A strong marriage is one where there is a third person - God - and He is the center of our lives together.
