Publisher's Summary

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.

Good Practical & Helpful

Paul's biblical and practical examples of what love should and actually does look like I'm marriage is incredibly helpful. Some parts can seem repetitive, but they certainly stick. Overall lessons learned are invaluable to couples seeking to have God at the center of their marriage and live with their spouse on a day to day level in a way that honors the Lord, all while keeping in mind that only He can help you do it!
