If your marriage is less than perfect and the "happily ever after" that was promised to you in childhood fairy tales is a distant dream, then Thriving Despite a Difficult Marriage will offer you hope.

In your less that perfect marriage, you can still have meaning, purpose, endurance, and optimism. Paperback.

Publisher Description

Michael and Chuck Misja are brothers who are Christian psychologists. They have been in practice together for nearly 20 years. Both have seen how individuals seem unable to stay strong in their marriage when their needs are not being met. This book has been written to meet the needs of their clients and friends who need hope. A main readon we are writing this book is because of the many Christians who labor under the idea that if their marriages are not "happily ever after" marriages then they must not be responsible Christians.

Many Christians believe an idea that we believe is not a biblical one: If we do enough right things, believe the right doctrines, and take full responsibility for our actions, then we will have that "happily ever after" marriage that apparently is God's standard. Those with less than happy marriages feel guilty and like second-class Christians when in fact, we believe that God never promised that our marriages will make us happy. We believe that God's standard is not happiness but faithfulness. This is not a popular concept in today's world.
