Married? Plan to Be? Then Read This!


H. Norman Wright authored “So You’re Getting Married” in 1985.  I picked up my copy the other day as I was researching for this blog and other areas of ministry.  There, right in the first chapter, just as he begins writing Wright gives a great list that defines marriage and provides useful information to help us as we Commit to Marriage:

  • Marriage is a gift.
  • Marriage is an opportunity for love and to be learned.
  • Marriage is a journey in which we as the travelers are faced with may choices and are responsible for these choices.
  • Marriage is affected more by our inner communication that our outer communication.
  • Marriage is more often influenced by unresolved issues from our past than we realize.
  • Marriage is a call to servanthood.
  • Marriage is a call to friendship.
  • Marriage is a call to suffering.
  • Marriage is not an event but a way of life.
  • Marriage involves intimacy in all areas for it to be fulfilling.
