Marriage Makes Us Grow Up

- 2013 29 Jul
I can think of no better practical school for wisdom than marriage. All of our character defects will be revealed in the crucible of marriage. Every foible, every weakness, every immature character trait will be revealed, sooner of later, in marriage. Are you thankful for the opportunity to "grow up" in marriage? What have you learned about yourself that you would never have known had it not been for your mate? “If I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.” (1 Corinthians 13:5)
Dr. David Hawkins is the director of the Marriage Recover Center where he counsels couples in distress. He is the author of over 30 books, including Dealing With the CrazyMakers in Your Life, 90 Days to a Fantastic Marriage, and Saying It So He'll Listen. Dr. Hawkins grew up in the beautiful Pacific Northwest and lives with his wife on the South Puget Sound where he enjoys sailing, biking, and skiing. He has active practices in two Washington cities.
