The four seasons of marriage (not every marriage will go through each stage, but the principles apply to all marriages)


  • early years of marriage
  • season of discovery and excitement
  • initial infatuation will wear off at some stage
  • the greatest need is to accept each other


  • season of increased activity and demands
  • may become parents during this season
  • may face pressures of infertility
  • careers can be more demanding
  • the greatest need is to give time to the marriage relationship

Reflect on what you’ve heard so far. Talk together about the pressures you’ve worked through until now in your relationship, and the pressures you’re currently facing.
