A COMMON STORY
The story is all too common: two well-intentioned people get married, excited about the future, ready for whatever life throws their way. Then life actually happens – and before long things take a different turn. A dirty kitchen becomes a battle ground. The conversations of previous years turn cold and critical. Where closeness was once enjoyed, a chasm begins to grow. Lines begin to get drawn and children become collateral, comparisons are weighed in the balance, and survival becomes the goal.
The brokenness of marriage begins to create new questions: Is this it? Is this the life I have to look forward to? Did I marry the right person? Is this marriage even worth it anymore? In this class we will focus on where these challenges stem from that produce so much conflict.
