Want an extraordinary marriage? Be an ordinary Christian.

Christians seeking ways to strengthen and improve their marriages aren’t suffering a shortage of advice. Much of it is good, even excellent.

Allow me to illustrate this by highlighting a handful of the most important aspects of the ordinary Christian life that affect marriage.
