Somehow, someway, every marriage becomes a struggle.

Everyone’s marriage morphs into something they didn’t intend it to be. At some point you need something sturdier than romance. You need something deeper than shared interests and mutual attraction. You need changed expectations, you need radical commitments, and, most importantly, you need grace.

Join pastor and best-selling author Dr. Paul David Tripp on a 10 session journey through the Bible to discover how to develop a marriage of unity, understanding, and love. This DVD series also includes a free PDF Leader's Guide and Discussion Guide, filled with helpful application questions for couples, small groups, and church-wide studies.

NOTE: This Conference on DVD is not designed to accompany the What Did You Expect? book. It is an excellent supplemental resource, but both the book and the Conference on DVD can be used as stand-alone resources.

"Noel and I listened to most of this book driving in the car! Wise words. Authentic experience. Provocative application. Turned a long trip into a fruitful two-person marriage seminar."

- John Piper, Desiring God Ministries

"When Paul Tripp teaches, preaches, or writes he does so through the lens of the gospel. In What Did You Expect?, Paul faithfully and brilliantly lets the gospel bear its weight on the messiness and beauty of marriage. I, personally, found the book to be helpful, and we use it extensively at The Village."

- Matt Chandler, Lead Pastor, The Village Church; author, The Explicit Gospel

"The reason What Did You Expect? is so powerful is not because Paul Tripp is a marriage expert with tips and tricks to fix your problems, it's because his teaching is drenched in the gospel and the Word of God. This honest book will help you see yourself and your spouse in a new light as it shows you who Jesus is and how to connect his redeeming grace to the daily realities of your marriage. Singles and engaged couples will benefit from it, too."

- Joshua Harris, Senior Pastor, Covenant Life Church; author, Dug Down Deep

"What I've come to expect from Paul Tripp is consistently deep, transparent, biblical, wise, practical, gospel-driven counsel. Rather than muddying the water with self-focused strategies designed to meet our ever-multiplying needs, Paul, as the seasoned soul-physician he is, correctly diagnoses our problems and provides the cure—humble faith in Jesus Christ. I wasn't disappointed. You won't be either."

- Elyse Fitzpatrick, counselor; speaker; author, Give Them Grace
