Video: The Hidden Sweetness of Marriage

Zoe Romanowsky - published on 11/19/14 - updated on 06/07/17

Through good times and bad, the union of man and woman can transform lives.

Today it can seem that the vision of what a family should be is lost. Restoring the vision begins with the stability and example of husband and wife. Marriage goes through good times and bad, and it can thrive when the two spouses come together to face hardship. It need not be hopeless — hardship can be a project married couples address together. Marriage provides graces to help sustain couples through trials and God has placed hidden sweetness in the difficulties which can be unraveled and enjoyed. The power of marriage is that it can transform people’s lives — both inside the family and outside of it. Husband and wife balance each other out, and its their difference that creates the spark that ignites the life they create together. This is the fourth installment of the Humanum film series.
