Marriage, according to Scripture, will always involve two flawed people living with each other in a fallen world. Yet, in pastor Paul Tripp's professional experience, the majority of couples enter marriage with unrealistic expectations, leaving them unprepared for the day-to-day realities of married life.

This unique book introduces a biblical and practical approach to those realities that is rooted in God's faithfulness and Scripture's teaching on sin and grace. Spouses need to be reconciled to each other and to God on a daily basis, Tripp declares. Since we're always sinners married to sinners, reconciliation isn't just the right response in moments of failure. It must be the lifestyle of any healthy marriage.

What Did You Expect? presents six practical commitments that give shape and momentum to such a lifestyle. These commitments, which include honestly facing sin, weakness, and failure; willingness to change; and embodying Christ's love, will equip couples to develop a thriving, grace-based marriage in all circumstances and seasons of their relationship.

    " I'm a big fan of Paul David Tripp. Read through this quickly for some premarital counseling I'm doing with some friends-- but looks like a book I'll be recommending for hurting marriages and returning to often. "

    " pretty good - read part of this for a marriage seminar e and i attended. didn't make it all the way through, but the book stays on our nightstand and we return to it frequently. "

    " I wouldn't say this is an easy book to read, but a good one. It gets to the heart of the matter quickly. Our marriages are not better because we communicate more frequently or do the dishes more, but because we love God and put him first. This book goes much more to the core of things than I can describe here. If you're serious about making your marriage work and have a relationship with God, read this book. I'm still reading this. Started it in conjunction with a video series at my church. "

    " This book was wonderful. Paul Tripp's insights were deep and profound, and I thoroughly enjoyed what he had to say. The principles he presents in this book would be beneficial for any relationship, not just the husband-wife relationship. I can safely say that this is the best relationship/marriage book that I have read so far, and I would highly recommend it to everyone who needs a fresh and biblical perspective on how to relate to others in a God-honoring way.
