Good News About Your Marriage

with Ron Deal | July 8, 2020

You've heard me talk about how the belief that half of all marriages end in divorce has made people frightened of marriage. Well, the actual divorce rate is much lower for first and blended family marriages than most people believe so their fear is based on a myth. Living in fear of being a statistic leads couples to make their marriages vulnerable. My suggestion, be optimistic about your marital future. Don't buy the lie. Live with confidence and trust God to teach you along the way.
