There is a godly order to priorities in our relationships: God, your spouse, your children, your family, your church and friends, and so on. But, God wants to be number one in our lives and nothing else!
Your spouse is human – they have fallen short before God just like you. So, we shouldn’t be surprised if we do end up unfulfilled or disappointed – it’s because they are not Jesus for you.
