Every person you meet is either actively participating in marriage or being impacted by its effects. The impact of marriage can be positive or negative. A fractured, cold, or bitter marriage can reinforce unhelpful patterns of impatience, selfishness, laziness, and lack of commitment in society. On the flip side, a gospel-reflecting marriage can reinforce and reflect the power of Christ-like submission, sacrifice, and covenantal love. A healthy, biblical view of marriage is worth teaching and talking about because healthy marriages benefit everyone as they more accurately weave the gospel into the fabric of society.
