Marriages begin as happy events, but in far too many cases they morph into painful scenarios, and discouragement, despondency, deep heartache and dissolution often result. Is there any hope? I believe that Ephesians 5:18–33 provides us with such. But, as Paul wrote to the Thessalonian believers in another context, it will require work of faith, labour of love and endurance of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ (1 Thessalonians 1:3). In other words, even though a marriage has begun God’s way and yet has gone wrong, it can be restored to being a marriage, God’s way—again.
