Have you ever seen a couple who seems to know a secret? They hold hands, laugh often, seem connected with one another. Have you ever wished you and your spouse could have what they have? In today's society, it's easy to get discouraged about marriage. But it is possible to be a part of a happy couple instead of always in awe of them. Lilo and Gerry Leeds have been married for 57 years and they know what it takes to not only make a marriage work but to live together—happily.

In Wonderful Marriage: A Guide to Building A Great Relationship That Will Last a Lifetime, the Leeds discuss sex, communication, dating, finances, children, health, religion, arguing, honeymooning and many other critical relationship issues. This is not a conservative or old-fashioned guide to landing a spouse but a refreshing and easy-to-understand book that will help both partners in a marriage feel validated and satisfied.

The Leeds' message is strengthened by contributions from Terrence Real, a bestselling relationship author who has more than 20 years of experience as a family therapist.
