Biggest Surprise in Marriage


"Many aspects of your life with your spouse will be affected by the core issue of friendship. As great as your current platonic friendship are now, friendship in marriage gets better and grows deeper, as God can bring you to "new levels of vulnerability, transparency, forgiveness, and reconciliation." 

"Married couples, invest in your friendship and work on it actively."

"Singles, grow your friendship muscles with your friends and even in your dating relationships."
