In counseling hundreds of engaged couples, Paul David Tripp has found they rarely listen to his warnings of the inevitable difficulties of marriage. Tripp receives calls from married couples after the trance of romance has worn off—they’re ready to call it quits. It happens to everyone,” Tripp writes. “It is the unavoidable reality of marriage. Somehow, someway, every marriage becomes a struggle. Spending time together is radically different from living together. Reasons for attraction become sources of irritation.
At some point you need something sturdier than romance. You need something deeper than shared interests and mutual attraction.” In Tripp’s new book, What Did You Expect??: Redeeming the Realities of Marriage, he suggests that both the problem and solution can be summed up in one word: worship.
