Every year millions of couples in America "tie the knot" of marriage. More than half will end in divorce. In fact, divorce has become so rampant that many couples simply choose not to get married, or are marrying much later in life. For Christian couples, "the knot" can become twisted, tangled and frayed with bad decisions, poor communication, and--most importantly--a lack of understanding of the biblical roles of husband and wife, and their God-given needs. The New Testament has clear and concise instructions for spouses that align marriage to the image of Christ, and provides a path for couples to live together with common purpose and a biblical mandate. In this four-part teaching series, Dr. Merritt unravels the ropes that bind poor marriages and helps couples re-tie the marriage knot to be stronger, more meaningful and truly "'til death do us part."
