Wait–Happy Marriages Exist? On Webb and Dowd Simpson

You may have seen that Webb Simpson, a devout Christian, just won the U. S. Open.  If you’re like me, you may not know much about him.  From the video above, he seems to be a godly husband and father (HT: Girltalk).  He and Dowd, his wife, seem to have a very happy marriage.

Let me say this: it is a beautiful thing to see a woman who wants to support, strengthen, and even better a man.  There really is something otherworldly about that–a rightly functioning, gospel-driven marriage is showing you a picture of Christ and his church.  There is elegance, aesthetic elegance, in seeing the elements of a godly union serve and encourage one another.

Happy marriages do exist.  The gospel powers them.
