Insights From Tim Keller’s - The Meaning of Marriage

By New York Times bestselling Author

Marriage is a natural institution, an intimate union and equal partnership of a man and a woman. It comes to us from the hand of God, who created Adam and Eve, so that they can become one body, be fertile and continue their lineage. Even though man and woman are equal as God’s children, they are created with a number of differences allowing them to have the strength to complement each other.
Modern culture makes us believe that everyone has a soul-mate, that romance is essential part of a successful marriage, that marriage does not mean forever and that starting over after a divorce is the best solution.... But, all those modern assumptions are completely wrong, says Timothy Keller, the bestselling author of the book The Meaning Of Marriage.
Using the Bible as his guide and some insightful suggestions and thoughts from his wife Kathy, Tim Keller shows that God created marriage to bring us more joy in our lives and to keep us closer to him. According to Tim, marriage is a divine and yet mysterious relationship, which is also the most misunderstood one.
"The Meaning Of Marriage” is an extremely helpful and practical book that speaks about the problems in marriage and commitment within a Christian perspective, while considering the common misconceptions, objections and realities that marriage involves. The most important thing in this book and the thing that Tim Keller focuses the most is the explanation of marriage as a complementary process between man and woman characterized by support and service of one another.
Marriage is all about trust, love and support. It is about what will you do to make the other more himself, and not about what you can get out of the other. “The Meaning Of Marriage” will help you understand that even blissfully happy marriages are not fully complete. Through this, Tim wants to guide us and change the way we think in another direction, in a direction where there is joy and happiness even in the smallest things in marriage.
The Meaning Of Marriage is about understanding that marriage can be fun and that there is a profound happiness, that comes from enjoying your life and walking through its obstacles with someone who is walking in the same direction as you, someone who takes part in everything you do and vice versa. When the challenges come, there is comfort in being two. Only on that way you can build a powerful and strong friendship that grows into a romantic relationship. In the end, it is always better to face the world with someone by your side, right? Be the support for your loved one and let him/her be yours!
