This resource makes a great wedding gift. Ideal for all marriages of any length from newlyweds to those married 60 years - even those just thinking about getting married. Description: What Did You Expect?: Redeeming the Realities of Marriage. It won't take long for you to realize that your marriage hasn't escaped the reality of sin or the brokenness of the world. It's what you do next that will make all the difference in the world in the character and quality of your marriage. The key to marital unity and love is not romance, rather, it is worship. It is only when I worship God as Creator, Sovereign, and Savior that I will ever love as I should. Have you ever wondered why some couples reach a place of unity, love, and understanding in their marriages while other couples seem trapped in the same struggles year, after year, after year? The surrounding culture would lead us to believe that a marriage of unity, love, and understanding is rooted in romance. Scripture would rather say that a good marriage is the result of worship. Does this confuse you? Then, this marriage conference is for you. Learn how practical these insights are for the everyday issues and situations of a real marriage; and, learn the practical steps that will help couples know how to get from where they are, to where God wants them to be. The truth presented in these sessions is not always easy to hear but it is profoundly good. This is the DVD version of the live marriage conference with Paul Tripp What Did You Expect?: Redeeming the Realities of Marriage - recorded on 3 DVDs. There are ten 25 minute sessions. Includes a reproducible Discussion Guide and Leader s Guide - downloadable PDFs. Ideal for use by Small Groups, Sunday school, pre-marital counseling, or individual couples.

As a pastor I am always on the lookout for resources that embody both doctrinal precision and practical application. Paul Tripp is consistently faithful to both. This conference has been a blessing both to me and those I serve. Will our marriages be characterized by ministry or manipulation? Will my relationship with my spouse be an expression of worship to God or a casualty of idolatry? The truth presented in these sessions is not always easy to hear but it is profoundly good. --Todd Pruitt, Teaching Pastor, Church of the Saviour, Wayne, Pennsylvania
In troubled times, God s truth deserves a clear voice characterized by uncompromising truth and passionate grace. Paul s conference presents just that: a clear challenge to examine our hearts based on the Gospel, and a compelling reminder of our own standing in grace, which then pours out into our closest relationships. Thanks to God for His gracious work in Paul s life and ministry to others desiring to connect the truths of the gospel to daily life. --Michael Boys, Lead Pastor, Bethel Church of Houston
Paul Tripp s ministry to our church through the marriage conference, What Did You Expect?: Redeeming the Realities of Marriage was pure grace. We give thanks for Paul's insightful biblical approach to understanding the essential issues in marriage as well as his humorous and realistic approach to married life. The conference accomplished all that we hoped for by helping our couples center their marriages around the gospel of grace. --Todd Augustine, Pastor of Congregational Life, College Church, Wheaton, Illinois
