Married And Still Loving It: The Joys and Challenges of the Second Half
First, I am not married...but as an adult, I like to think that reading Biblically-sound books on the topic will prepare me for marriage if it is in my future! I also like to study up on the topic so that I don't have a false view of marriage because as we all know, the longer we are single, the harder it will be to share our organized life with another. ;P
I have enjoyed books by Gary Chapman in the past, so looked forward to reading this book. Also, I think the cover is very pleasing. I found this paperback to be written in a similar style to Mr. Chapman's other books. It is very practical, which will please many readers! It is also easily applicable to both Christians as well as nonbelievers. The goal of the authors is to present tips and wisdom to help couples keep their marriage strong. Of course Christians will especially benefit from the reading and studying of this book. Included are fun study guide tips and the usual personality questions to help the readers better benefit from the book.
I received a copy from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.
Long marriages are a gift… but they aren’t always easy
You know yourselves better. You’ve learned to cherish the small things. You’re past keeping up with the Joneses.
And yet, anxieties over grown children, worries about money and health, and feelings of disappointment can challenge even the best marriages.
In Married and Still Loving It, renowned relationship expert Gary Chapman and Harold Myra, longtime CEO of Christianity Today International, offer wise counsel and practical insight on making your marriage thrive during these years. Real couples share honestly about their joys and struggles, including Jerry and Dianna Jenkins and Ken and Joni Eareckson Tada, who talk movingly about their marital journeys.
Married and Still Loving It feels like a gathering of kindred spirits. It will inspire and equip you to embrace the adventures yet ahead, hand in hand with the one you love
