What Makes a Great Marriage… and Why It’s Worth It — Dr. Bob Paul

Summit Ministries

Dr. Bob Paul, vice president of the Focus on the Family Marriage Institute, explains what marriage is and shouldn’t be in this discussion with Dr. Jeff Myers which may surprise some people. He acknowledges that one of the reasons young people of faith today may not want to wed is tied to the poor examples provided by some older married believers – who fail to let God direct their marriages in the righteous way he wishes. “The most common reason for divorce is ‘irreconcilable differences’,” Dr. Paul explains. “But differences are never the problem in marriage. They are designed by God on purpose with purpose” to help us grow our character and Christlikeness as individuals who then help our spouses do the same.
