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. Thatâ€™s a forty percent decline in the span of a single generation! And thatâ€™s where weâ€™re headed: a â€œsingle generation.â€ For the first time in our nationâ€™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! Here are some of my favorite quotes from the book:
As a follower of Jesus Christ, I believe if God can raise His Son from the dead, He also has the power to resurrect a dead marriage.
