Does your marriage fulfill your dreams? Are you not yet married but eager to wed? Are you afraid to marry because you've seen so few happy marriages? R.C. Sproul offers this practical guide to help married couples-or those seeking to get married-develop the skills of marriage. Dilligently scriptural, Sproul shows how marriages can have an abundance of joy when grounded in the wisdom of God. Sproul walks through some of the toughest things couples struggle with today: communication, sex, roles, divorce, anger, and more. He shares what the Bible says about each, as well as lessons he has learned from his own marriage of forty years.
From communication to sex, from divorce to the sanctity of marriage, Sproul leads you past potential problems into joyous communion with your spouse in Christ.
