Boy meets girl. Boy and girl fall in love, get married, have kids, and live happily ever after. The end.
Has that been your story? Is it ever anyone’s story? I doubt it. Or if it is, it’s only in Hallmark movies, romance novels, and fairy tales. Perhaps the myth is so enduring because it’s a desire God built into our human DNA. But God didn’t give marriage to humans primarily as the means to happiness; instead, God uses marriage to change you. After marriage then comes transformation.
