Product Description

While many people desperately want to find lasting love, they often fear commitment and hedge their bets with Maybe I Do or half-committed relationships. These relationships often lead to cohabitation, which according to the latest controversial research by relationship expert, Scott Stanley, is a proven indicator for increased chances of a failed marriage down the road. In this valuable new book, Stanley reveals that the secret ingredient in all successful relationships is understanding commitment. He defines commitment as not simply staying together but being together, not feeling constraint or loss, but rather appreciation for the opportunity to experience the unexpected joy and passion of long-term partnership. Stanley presents a five-step program for understanding commitment and uses quotes from the Bible for wisdom and inspiration.
