Marital Bliss?'My wife is a nag!' 'My husband thinks I'm his slave!'We just don't love each other anymore.'Common phrases in an all too common world of marital failure. We hear them everyday from our co-workers, our friends, and even ourselves. The separation and divorce rate among Christian couples continues to rise while thousands of other Christian couples continue to live together in something far less than the 'abundant life' that Jesus promised. Is your marriage turning out differently than you expected? Are all of today's alarming statistics making you wary of ever getting married? Well you are not alone. In Toward a Growing Marriage, Dr. Chapman offers the hope you've been looking for. The author of the best-selling book The Five Love Languages, will help you get your marriage off to a good start or back on the right track with advice that is both biblical and practical. Part of the problem, according to Dr. Chapman, is that too many times our churches have focused on the negative biblical directives when teaching about marriage. We need to know more than to not marry a non-believer and to save sex for marriage. We need to know how to succeed. Toward a Growing Marriage is divided into two sections in order to help two different audiences succeed: those who are in the process of finding a spouse who will be a 'fitting' or 'suitable' marriage partner those who have already said 'I do' and are trying to fulfill that commitmentMarital happiness is not automatic, but the practical application of Dr. Chapman's helpful information will put couples well on their way to successful and fulfilling marriages.
