1 Corinthians 1:1-6, 9-13, 17-18
Rev. Jessica Wright, preaching
Gottman describes shared meaning as a spiritual dimension to marriage that has to do with creating an inner life together – a culture rich with symbols and rituals, and an appreciation for the spouses’ roles and goals that like them, that lead them to understand what it means to be a part o f the family they have become.
According to Gottman, when a marriage has a shared sense of meaning, conflict is much less intense and perpetual problems are less likely to lead to gridlock.
