"Altared is a must-read for young Christians hungering for a realistic, biblically rich take on love and marriage in the twenty-first century."
--Katelyn Beaty, editor, Christianity Today magazine, Her.meneutics

Mar*riage-hap*py \mar#65533;-ij-hap#65533;e#65533;\ adj 1: Having an inordinate preoccupation with marital pursuits, sometimes at the cost of other Christian priorities, commonly seen in evangelicals. 2: A giddiness stemming from all things related to marriage.

In the frenzied pursuit of romance, Christians sometimes lose sight of the greatest commandments: to love God and to love others. Distracted by wedding bells and exuberant hopes for a happily-ever-after, Christians often forget the greater vision of Christ's call to love.

What if God is less worked up about marriage than we are?

With honesty and insight, Claire and Eli ask us to shift our thinking away from marriage or singleness and toward love and discipleship.

Drawing from luminaries like Augustine, the Desert Fathers, and Bonhoeffer, they invite you to join their real-life exploration of love as they convincingly demonstrate why a love for God and for one's neighbor are to be our top priorities, whether we are single or married.

It took a good deal of time for the couple to figure out what was right in front of them - an underdeveloped relationship with super high expectations that weren't fullfilled.

Everyone has pressures of a sort - it is part of being an adult to push back and figure out what you want and what makes sense to you.
