From Chapter 1: When Sinners Say "I Do"

"What we believe about God determines the quality of our marriage."


"It's a wonderful, freeing thing to realize that the durability and quality of your marriage is not ultimately based on the strength of your commitment to your marriage. Rather, it's based on something completely apart from your marriage: God's truth; truth we find plain and clear on the pages of Scripture."


"What if you abandoned the idea that the problems and weaknesses in your marriage are caused by a lack of information, dedication, or communication? What if you saw your problems as they truly are: caused by a war within your own heart?"


"'Till sin be bitter, Christ will not be sweet.' [Thomas Watson] means that until we truly understand the problem, we won't savor the solution...My friends, when sin becomes bitter, marriage becomes sweet."
