What is the key to a successful, long-lasting relationship? It all begins with a simple promise. . .
I will never leave you.
While most books on relationships tell you why you should leave your partner, here is a refreshing look at the enormous gains that can come from staying. For more than twenty years, Hugh and Gayle Prather have been helping couples build satisfying, permanent, spiritually centered relationships. Based on their experience as counselors and the problems theyve solved in their own long marriage, their book shares a message that dares to stand up against the tide of cop-outs and easy answers from most self-proclaimed relationship experts.
In this groundbreaking work, the Prathers guide you through the eight "mindsets" of permanent relationships and give you the strategies you need to solve the specific difficulties most couples face. They speak frankly and very personally about some of the toughest tests of relationshipsincluding infidelity, financial crises, and blended families. Filled with wit, wisdom, and compassion, I Will Never Leave You is a well-needed tonic for overcoming the epidemic popularity of "separation psychology" and instead building lasting, mature, mutually fulfilling relationships that stand the toughest challenge of all: real life.
