What is the Goal of Marriage ?

A: You fell in love, you said, I do, and you anticipated your relationship would be somewhere between easy and magical. Now life is a strange mixture of good moments and intense disappointments. You have probably asked, Why has it turned out like this? Why are some days so good and other days so hard? Did we really know what we were doing? Are we missing something? These are all mirrors of the question, What is the goal of marriage? While marriage is designed to bring times of happiness, it is not the primary purpose. Marriage is designed to make sure you reach your potential in influencing others. Influence is made up of three elements: character,
communication and continuation. Character is vital because you cant pass on to others what is not real in your life. The intimacy of marriage helps you be more patient, more selfless, more determined, more cooperative and more skilled in managing your life. Iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another. (Proverbs 27:17) None of us got married with this in mind but it is one of the most valuable outcomes of intimacy. We do not see ourselves as stubborn and we could ignore it if we were single. But, as we interact with our partners it becomes painfully obvious that we only like to do what we are comfortable doing. When we have to stretch ourselves and pursue one of our partner`ss ideas, We realize that we still have plenty of room to grow in being less stubborn.
