22 Wives, be subject to your own husbands, as to the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ also is the head of the church, He Himself being the Savior of the body. 24 But as the church is subject to Christ, so also the wives ought to be to their husbands in everything. 25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her.
Marriage can be hard. It is the relationship that most of us had dreamed of for years before finally finding that one person that we decided to spend the rest of our lives with. Unfortunately for most if not all of us, it is never the happily ever after that we dream it will be. It is hard work and at times heartbreaking. The strong feelings and physical attraction we had at one time can fade and change through the ups and downs of life. Those getting-to-know-you conversations that could last hours and hours become more about routine and how our day was. The things we enjoyed doing together get crowded out by kids and work and life.
