There’s something different about marriage these days. That’s probably the most understated sentence you’ll read all day! Consider some of the research:
In 1960, nearly 70% of the adult population married; today, only about half the population marries. According to the Pew Research Center, the drop-off is even more precipitous for the Millennial generation. In 1960, over two-thirds (68%) of all twenty-somethings married. Today, barely over a quarter (26%) marry. That’s a forty percent decline in the span of a single generation! And that’s where we’re headed: a “single generation.” For the first time in our nation’s history, the majority of adults (18+) will soon be single.
That’s crazy to consider. That’s why we need to commit time and effort into carefully considering our views on marriage and how we apply Scripture in this area. That’s why I’m so grateful for my friend Tim’s book You Married the Wrong Person. His humor and brevity make this a punchy little read that will leave you thinking and reset your eyes on Christ. If you’re not much of a reader, don’t worry, this one can be read in one sitting! He’s also a die-hard Yankee fan, so you know you can trust his point of view!
