What is the purpose of marriage? Go beyond anything you value in this world or in another person. You learning curriculum is very specific and may include practicing forgiveness through marriage. Your only purpose here is to know yourself as the Son of God, and the Spirit will use everything in form for this purpose; even marriage.
David Hoffmeister talks about how to tune into, what he calls, “Central Casting”—the Guidance from the Holy Spirit—and let go of how you think your life should go. Just give your full “yes” to Spirit and come to see that you need do nothing, because He will do all things through you. You can simply drop into the lightness of joy and laughter and soar in the truth of who you are! Without a care! Forget about time and space, and realize that, by following His Guidance, you allow yourself to be truly loved.
