Product Description

Sometimes we wish we could change our spouse to be just like us, but true marital bliss comes from learning to appreciate and respect the person you married and God created. In Art and Laraine Bennett's book, The Temperament God Gave Your Spouse, they show Christian couples how to recognize the four classic temperaments (Choleric, Sanguine, Melancholic, and Phlegmatic) and use them to better understand your spouse, yourself, and God. Through a better understanding of your and your spouse's temperament, you can love your marriage partner more selflessly in the sacrament of Christian marriage. Paperback.

Publisher's Description

Love, honor, cherish ... and understand

In their bestselling book, The Temperament God Gave You, authors Art and Laraine Bennett re-introduced the age-old concept of the four classic temperaments, and showed how to use them to understand yourself, get along with others, and grow closer to God.

Now they're back with more temperament wisdom, designed specially for couples and guaranteed to improve your marital communication, intimacy, and happiness: The Temperament God Gave Your Spouse.

In no other kind of human relationship is knowledge of the temperaments the fundamental personality traits, hard-wired into us at birth, that affect the way we respond to the world around us so critical, and so fruitful, as in a Christian marriage. For it's only through mutual understanding of our own patterns of reaction, and those of our spouse, that we can motivate, nurture, respect, and above all, love each other with the selfless patience to which Christ calls us in the sacrament.

Publisher Description

In their bestselling book, The Temperament God Gave You, Art and Laraine Bennett re-introduced the age-old concept of the four classic temperaments, and showed how to use them to understand yourself, get along with others, and grow closer to God.

Now they’re back with more temperament wisdom, designed specially for couples and guaranteed to improve your marital communication, intimacy, and happiness: The Temperament God Gave Your Spouse.

In no other kind of human relationship is knowledge of the temperaments — the fundamental personality traits, hard-wired into us at birth, that affect the way we respond to the world around us — so critical, and so fruitful, as in a Christian marriage. For it’s only by understanding our own patterns of reaction and those of our spouse that we can motivate, nurture, respect, and above all, love each other with the selfless patience to which Christ calls us in the sacrament.

In a fun-to-read style that incorporates practical psychology, real-life anecdotes, and decades of clinical experience, the Bennetts will show you:

  • The four kinds of spouses — which kind did you marry?
  • How temperament affects the way you and your spouse work, pray, argue, socialize, and show affection
  • Tips for developing the communication skills that your temperament needs most, and for nurturing them in your spouse
  • All the possible temperament combinations in marriage, and how to handle the unique challenges that yours creates
  • Proven ways to figure out what really makes your spouse tick!

    So often we wish we could make our spouses different (because they’re not just like us); yet the Bennetts show that true marital contentment lies not in changing the way God made our loved ones, but in appreciating it — and helping them to perfect it. Read The Temperament God Gave Your Spouse and discover a new world of understanding and respect for the person you married.
