Story Behind the Book
For every ten marriages in America today, five will end in bitter conflict and divorce. And only one or two couples in ten will achieve what might be called "intimacy" in their marriages. This book helps keep readers from being passive victims in the unfolding drama of their lives together. They can build a stable, satisfying, intimate relationship that will withstand the storms of life. All they need is a little wise counsel...and a burning desire to succeed. Based on information from a panel of successfully married couples, on the research of respected experts in the field, and on the principles endorsed by the Creator of families Himself, Love for a Lifetime is designed to help couples do just that.
