One of the benefits of having a married partner in life is you have someone who will rescue you. Not to enable one another, but a genuine and wise rescue, where if you didn’t have your partner to take you in another direction, you would deeply regret your actions.
In a day when half of all marriages fail, we all need insight that stands the test of time. We need wisdom from Scripture to equip us to transform our own union from a lacklustre contract into an intimate and exciting relationship.
Whether you're recently engaged, just realizing the honeymoon is over, or celebrating your golden anniversary, Insight for Living remains committed to helping couples cultivate honesty, exhibit grace, and experience a joy and intimacy in marriage that they never thought possible.
We have always been fascinated with stories—especially the ones beginning with those same four words “Once upon a time…” and ending with “And they all lived happily ever after.” Oh, that it were true!

In order for a marriage to be successful, both partners must submit to the roles God ordained for them. Submission is a simple plan, but it demands patience and it requires the Holy Spirit.
Marriage, as God intended it, is a mutual thing. It goes both ways—God never asks more of one than the other, though He asks the maximum of everyone.
