What Makes a “Christian” Marriage?

So, is a Christian marriage different than every other marriage?

We’re known for saying, “Don’t get divorced.”  But does a a cold commitment to not getting divorced actually make for a better marriage?  I think we need a little more drive forward than that.  After all, Barna studies show that Christian divorce rates match that of the rest of the population.

I also think it’s got to be bigger than drive, and just working harder than the rest.  There’s not much gospel to the message: “take more date nights.”  I’m sure that helps, but it’s still on me to make the marriage great… which I can botch at any given time?

What about Jesus, when welcomed into the lives of a committed couple, makes a marriage more secure, more alive, more at peace?
