Read full description of the books:
I have always been in love with the idea of “happily ever after.” We live in a society with a divorce rate of roughly fifty percent, so happily ever after seems very implausible to many people. The percentage was slightly lower when I was small, but still high enough for me to know this was bad, even as a kid. It wasn’t just the statistics that fascinated me though, it was the why behind the numbers that made me want to study marriages and their success rates a little more closely.
As a child in a single-parent family, I longed to see the interaction between a husband and wife, to know what a romantic relationship was supposed to look like. I spent years memorizing fairytales, hoping to find some magical formula that would take the romance out of the pages of a book and into my own life. I took to studying my friends’ parents – those who were happily married and those who were not – trying to calculate what made their relationships the way they were. I watched as families dissolved, as friends accumulated step families, as hearts were broken and lives were forever changed. I sat on the sidelines, trying desperately to come up with some sort of way to save people from ever going through the heartbreak, but came up short every time.
Eventually, I compiled a list of some basic solid advice that I felt could be applied to almost any marriage. Over the years, my observations led me to believe this: there are seven basic principles of love that can make virtually any marriage work.
Through extensive research, interviews with couples, and my own observations, I have come up with seven basic steps to a successful, healthy, happy marriage. I wrote this book to share them and the details surrounding them, hoping to save at least one marriage from ending without just cause. The steps covered in this book are:
-Ignore the clichés: learning to debunk marriage myths and frivolous advice.
-Build a friendship with romance: befriending your spouse.
-Argue sensibly: a guide on what not to do in a fight.
-Learn your spouse’s love language: give your spouse the gift of love.
-Make sex a priority: it’s time to get physical.
-Date your spouse: stay connected romantically.
-Don’t let life come between you: keeping outside influences at bay.
By following the advice in these chapters, you will not only find yourself in a stronger marriage, but you’ll find yourself remembering why you fell in love in the first place. I should note that while this is a great place to start, these chapters aren’t all inclusive. Every relationship is vastly different from the next, and although there are definite patterns to marriages, not every relationship will follow the same one. It is important to take this advice and place it within the context of your own marriage, instead of trying to make your marriage fit these steps.
So what are you waiting for? Let’s get the journey started…soon you’ll be riding off into your happily ever after!
