God has designed the marriage relationship in a way that causes both partners to be challenged to be better. It works too, if we choose to co-operate and not fight against His plan for a christian marriage.

The thing is no-one has the perfect marriage, not all the time anyway. From time to time we feel more content with our relationship than at other times but to have a blissful marriage at all times … well that is impossible. It?s also not the point of marriage. Marriage is not there to make you feel happy, comfortable, at ease. It?s there to challenge you, to provoke you, to cause you to be better, to be less selfish. Of course having a partner in life makes getting through life easier … most of the time. Then the other times, the times when being married seems to make life more challenging, are good too, although it never seems like that at the time.

Proverbs 27:17 (New International Version)

As iron sharpens iron,
so one person sharpens another.
