“Marriage is about friendship.”(page 23)

I recently finished reading Mark and Grace Driscoll’s book, “Real Marriage: The Truth About Sex, Friendship, and Life Together“. This is absolutely needed in the church today. In fact, in nearly 30 years as a believer, I have never seen this issue hit so head on.

I so appreciate Mark and Grace’s honesty in opening up their past and marriage to public scrutiny. Their basic premise, before diving into an overview of marriage as well as very specific “can you do that” questions, is that marriage is based on a friendship. So often marriage is about a feeling of love. This shows a view that is much more African, one where marriage is a choice and a commitment.
