Description

Marriage, according to Scripture, will always involve two flawed people living with each other in a fallen world. Yet, in pastor Paul Tripp's professional experience, the majority of couples enter marriage with unrealistic expectations, leaving them unprepared for the day-to-day realities of married life.



This unique book introduces a biblical and practical approach to those realities that is rooted in God's faithfulness and Scripture's teaching on sin and grace. "Spouses need to be reconciled to each other and to God on a daily basis," Tripp declares. "Since we're always sinners married to sinners, reconciliation isn't just the right response in moments of failure. It must be the lifestyle of any healthy marriage."



What Did You Expect? presents six practical commitments that give shape and momentum to such a lifestyle. These commitments, which include honestly facing sin, weakness, and failure; willingness to change; and embodying Christ's love, will equip couples to develop a thriving, grace-based marriage in all circumstances and seasons of their relationship.

Recommend this book to all! Wish I read it earlier in my marriage and even going into it!
This is such a great book and wonderful audio to listen to over and over while keeping busy at other things. What did I expect? How awesome is marriage when approached from the perspective that God brought us together for a purpose and is working all things together for our good and His glory! Marriage is so much more enriched when I stay my mind upon His Sovereign plan for my life and my marriage!

Excellent and so relevant
This book is excellent and what any/every married couple needs. It sheds the truth into the thoughts that plague us when we struggle in marriage. How can we go from loving our spouse and so enraptured by them to hurting them and thinking we made the wrong decision to marry them. Paul Tripp sheds light on the issue - we are what is wrong with our marriage, the sin that lives in us and never wants to see itself for what it is. After 32 years of marriage, I really needed to hear this message and how I can overcome the struggles to get back to the unity we once had, but only through the grace of Jesus.

The most challenging book I've ever listened to
Take a look in the mirror. Really ask yourself if you ARE the spouse you think you are. Warning: This book may shake you to your core.
Be patient and listen to ALL of it... it took me until the end of chapter 12 to penetrate my thick skull.
