Marriage: What's Wrong With Happiness

I believe all too many people get married for the wrong reasons...especially my Christian brothers and sisters. I've seen many of them fall into the happiness trap, eventually ruining their marriages in their beginning stages. Some have been struggling on for years, but have never truly found the purpose of their marriage. Plain and simple, some have left their marriage because they weren't happy, and they vehemently defended their actions to me, saying something to the effect that "God wants me to be happy." I certainly believe that God wants what is best for us, but that doesn't always mean constant happiness. That being said, here's a great article from Christianity Today's "Marriage Partnership" magazine. Check it out.
