Benefits of marital problems

Todays Quote

Jay Adams, Solving Marriage Problems:

The pressures of marriage…have a way of bringing out defects.  You can’t place two sinners — even redeemed ones — under the same roof, at close range, day after day without such pressures.  And they are often great enough to expose problems not previously apparent.  Although a young couple may consider themselves compatible, they may soon discover the truth that no two sinners are fundamentally compatible.  Only as Christ works within the marriage can there be genuine, lasting unity. [p. 2, my emphasis]
