When Your Spouse Has Been an Assault Victim

A few years ago, after 18 years together, Pastor Mark learned for the first time that Grace had been a victim of sexual assault in a previous relationship—although she had never identified herself as a victim and connected her story to the reality of what had happened to her. It was devastating to hear and at the same time explained the root cause of much of the barriers to friendship and intimacy they had in their marriage. 

This clip is excerpted from the sermon "New Marriage, Same Spouse," part 1 of Mars Hill Church's Real Marriage sermon series, based off the book of the same name by Pastor Mark and Grace Driscoll. It was preached by Pastor Mark at Mars Hill Downtown Bellevue and released on January 15.
