The Deceptive 50/50 Relationship

Today’s #FamilyFridays blog post centers on marriage.  Couples often get married and think it’s a 50/50 partnership… but realize a short ways in, it really doesn’t work that way.  ChristianFamilyLife.com explores the 50/50 deception through what our Needs are, what’s God’s Principle is, and what our Response should be.
