More Thoughts on Marriage

Just wanted to share this (excellent) article my aunt sent to me, in light of the book, Sacred Marriage, that Philip and I are reading:

These things are coming to me at just the right time, as Philip and I are preparing for the "post deployment re-intigration" phase in our life and marriage. The "honeymoon" period of reunion often turns sour quickly if each person comes into it with their own set of expectations and wants.

Knowing that it's Not about my happiness and fulfillment, but instead, becoming holy and pleasing to God, as a witness to the world of His love for us, puts things in a whole different light.
