"He which made them at the beginning made them male and female, and said, `For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: And they twain shall be one flesh.' Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh."--Jesus. (Matthew 19:4-6.)
Marriage, the joining together of a man and woman so that they become one, was ordained by God to be the most satisfying, most strengthening and most lasting human relationship in all of life. But sad to say, more and more couples find themselves in relationships that are anything but satisfying or strengthening, and today's appalling divorce statistics show that marriage is becoming more expendable and less lasting all the time!
Marvellous Marriage is composed of summaries of some of the best and most helpful books on marriage available today. Thousands of pages of material have been boiled down and condensed into a "Reader's Digest" type of format, thus offering you a virtual mini-library of invaluable counsel and advice that could not only save your marriage, but help you to make it the loving, happy and warm relationship that most couples long for but have only dreamt about.
Because of the variety of different authors whose books are summarised herein, you'll find, in some cases, that different solutions are offered for very similar or almost identical problems. Therefore, it's important to realise that this book is by no means intended to be a hard and fast list of ironclad rules and regulations. Rather than an inflexible outline of "thou shalts" and "thou shalt nots" governing every aspect of love relationships, Marvellous Marriage is primarily a reference book, a handbook full of helpful counsel and advice from many different angles and aspects. The advice which you choose to implement or follow is up to your discretion depending on what you feel will most benefit your particular situation.
Although a good many of the authors of the summaries in this book are not necessarily writing from a Christian or Biblical viewpoint, they are highly qualified marriage counsellors whose years of experience and observation enable them to share what they have found works and what doesn't work in relationships. So while this material may not be as ostensibly "spiritual" as some might wish, the tried-and-proven methods these authors present will undoubtedly be of enormous benefit to anyone who's willing to try implementing them in their marriage. If you'd like improved communication and restored romance with your spouse, and to make your marriage more enjoyable, productive and lasting, then Marvellous Marriage is for you!
