In his book, Sacred Marriage, Gary Thomas makes the observation that “marriage is more about holiness, not happiness”. He did not meant we cannot experience happiness in marriage! However, marriages often struggle when happiness is the goal. When happiness is the goal, we tend to expect our mate to meet our needs. However, the needs we expect them to meet are ones only God can meet. If holiness is our goal as we go through marriage, we let our Heavenly Father meet our needs and then we are moved to love and meet our spouses’s needs.
