"Love & War..Finding The Marriage You've Dreamed Of

So right before Valentine's Day is a good time to read a book on marriage? In this case the answer is yes. I have read books by John Eldredge and I have read a book called "Captivating" by Staci, but this time they co wrote this book on marriage.
I like the fact that you see both points of view on their stories. They have been married 25 years. Through those 25 years they have had hard times..2 times almost divorcing. Through the good and bad, they have found what things to focus on,what things to let go of in a marriage. I like the fact that they talk about their backgrounds and how those impact how they relate to each other. You are dealing with 2 different people with different thoughts in most marriages. It takes work to understand and relate. They talk about marriage as a shared adventure. In that sharing, God is the most important person. Without Him, you end up relying on an imperfect human. They cover things like quirks,bad timing, sex, arguments, and how to pray with each other and for one another. The book has a lot of insight in to how many of us feel in our marriages. I would recommend this book for couples who are just starting out and for couples,like Darrell and I, who have been married 25 years.
