Marriage experts Les and Leslie Parrott look at five possible reasons why good marriages bump into bad things: unfulfilled expectations, unexamined selves, unskilled couples, unhealthy choices, and unpredictable circumstances. They suggest five basic qualities that can help a marriage survive: responsibility, hope, forgiveness, empathy, and commitment. And they point out one bad thing you can change right now to make your marriage better: your attitude.
Included at the end of each chapter are discussion questions designed to help you pull together when life tries to pull you apart.
This book is accompanied by two workbooks -- one for the husband and one for the wife -- to help couples make meaningful connections with the book's content and to help practice new skills.
