Beloved invites all couples to experience firsthand the wonder, mystery, and joy behind that first “I Do”…whether you said it last year or many years ago (or are looking to say it very soon as you prepare for marriage)! So you’ve shared an anniversary or two…or twenty…and you’ve learned a lot about yourselves and each other so far. But what if marriage is more than you think it is? What if God has woven into the very fabric of your humanity a purposeful need and desire that can only be fulfilled in your marriage?
