We recently had to take advantage of the opportunity here to speak with multiple young men from our community who are newlyweds, ranging from 6 months to a few years.
We ask questions and hear reflections and bits of wisdom from the first few months of being a young married men. We did this over multiple takes on video chat so you can listen to the answers.

Payte, What Are You Enjoying So Far In Marriage – Handing Over Rights And Truly Sharing Life
How Does Marriage Differ From Living With Godly Guys In College?
Intimacy with your spouse is on a whole’nother level of community and union that you can’t experience with your guy friends. Both are great, but very different as the community with your wife reflects intimacy with Christ, while community with your bros reflects intimacy with your fellow church.
We are “one” with our spouse. Not with our bros.
We also talk about one-ness with our spouse. It’s more than just physical. It’s emotional; it’s spiritual; it shows us God’s heart for us. The physical is nice, but the rest is even better!
