Publisher's Description

Does God want to write your love story? Well, maybe not—especially not if it is the culture's romanticized ideal of happily ever after! Margaret and Dwight Peterson help us sort out the difference between how our surrounding society often depicts marriage and how Christians really should approach this particular gift of God to all humanity. They guide us through many aspects of a growing, maturing marriage including being a family, handling conflict, friendship, children, household economics and weathering the transitions of life. In the end they show how Christian marriage is far deeper and stronger than a romantic fairy tale. In fact, it reflects the kind of love God has for us in the gospel of Jesus Christ who gave his life for us that we might have his life in us.

Editorial Reviews

"If you need assistance with pre-marriage stuff or working with couples already married, the topics covered can be offered as a complete guide or stand alone as individual studies in relationships. The epilogue itself is enough to make the book worthy of your attention. Relationships are a wonderful challenge. Utilizing this book will make that challenge more glorious."

-- Kent Miller, YouthWorker Journal, September/October 2012

"The Petersons offer a particularly interesting perspective on the purpose of marriage, and how and why to welcome family into that marriage—a perspective absent from other Christian marriage books."

-- Lauren Mooney, CBA Retailers+Resources, July 2011
