Difficulties will occur in everyone's life. We are typically much more aware of our own difficulties than those of others. This can easily breed unwarranted envy. But knowing that everyone has challenges in life can make your own easier to cope with.
Marriage is a constantly changing, fluid, evolving process. Each stage of marriage has its unique character-development opportunities. God will always set you up in situations that will challenge you and enable you to access hidden strengths that you may not realize you possess!

ArtScroll Publications, 1998, Chapter One, p.54)
