This is a great read for anyone no matter your relationship status. Chip does a great job explaining what can make and break great relationships. With chapters such as:
Hollywood's Formula for Lasting, Loving Relationships
Two Models for Lasting Relationships
God's Prescription for Lasting Relationships
Before You "Fall in Love"
you are sure to start thinking about your current relationship/past relationships/future relationship in a different manner. I feel this information measures up to the Standard God has in the Bible. This is worth the purchase and the time to read it. I hope that it will bless you too.

Chip Ingram covered nearly all aspects of the subject leaving the reader with a realistic and reachable God given objective in this area of the Christian Life. You'll have the principles upon which to base your own how tos for reaching that objective and becoming victorious in your own vital relationships. It would be most useful in counseling settings and for any sermon/talk on the topic.
i am not completely through the book but i am enjoying the topic very much. the book has already hit on some things i know i need to work on. there are many different circumstances and variables brought out to connect with all readers. thank you.
We have used this study for our young singles and it generates a lot of healthy discussion. We have all, to varying degrees, bought into the culture's approach to "love" and how we enter relationships. For most of us, it gives cause for pause. We can step back in our thinking and even our current relationships and adjust our practices to a more godly approach.
