Long marriages are a gift… but they aren't always easy
You know yourselves better. You've learned to cherish the small things. You're past keeping up with the Joneses.
And yet, anxieties over grown children, worries about money and health, and feelings of disappointment can challenge even the best marriages.
In Married and Still Loving It, renowned relationship expert Gary Chapman and Harold Myra, longtime CEO of Christianity Today International, offer wise counsel and practical insight on making your marriage thrive during the later years. Real couples share honestly about their joys and struggles, including Jerry and Dianna Jenkins and Ken and Joni Eareckson Tada, who talk movingly about their marital journeys.
Married and Still Loving It feels like a gathering of kindred spirits. It will inspire and equip you to embrace the adventures yet ahead, hand in hand with the one you love.
Full disclosure: I did not realize when selecting this book, that it was about "The Joys and Challenges of the Second Half" meaning second half of your life! We are still in our first half of life, but this book was amazing anyway. The wisdom about life and love can be applied to all. I love Gary Chapman's books, and this book didn't disappoint me. They also write about real stories, from real couples. I love that! Books that give you advice, but throw in real stories makes the lessons from the book stick with me more than just a list of do's & don'ts. It's an easy read, designed to help you breeze through and not get bogged down. And even though I wasn't the target audience, I want the healthy, long marriage so anything that I can get my hands on to teach me how to have the marriage that I want, you bet I will read it! I would recommend this book to everyone!
