It didn't take long for Tyler to realize he had no idea how to be married.
When Tyler and Analee got married, they read marriage books, learned about each other's personality and habits, and exhausted three-step relational formulas. Yet a year and a half after their wedding, they had fallen into a pattern of fighting and unhappiness.
Tyler knew that he and his wife needed more than formulas and counseling sessions. They needed a vision for marriage that extended beyond just finding happiness and falling in love. They wanted a vision that dealt with the realities of life and gave them a picture of marriage worth fighting for.
As a business professional who helps companies "rebrand" when their image doesn't match up with their identity, Tyler realized that marriage has an image that doesn't match up to what God designed it to be.
Marriage Rebranded will help you replace four modern misconceptions about marriage with more timeless perspectives enlightened by biblical, personal, and historical studies.
We need to rethink our modern brand of matrimony. It's time for us to develop a new vision for marriage—a vision that's worth fighting for.
Marriage Rebranded marks the debut of a gifted writer, astute thinker, and earnest believer. Tyler Ward asks all the right questions about marriage and comes up with compelling answers. If you want to think more deeply about marriage, more biblically, and more thoughtfully, this is the book for you.

I'm honored to be one of the voices Tyler sought to speak into "rebranding" your marriage. But I think it's Tyler's wife, Analee's voice who makes the strongest case for why you should read this book. She writes, "I am incredibly thankful he (Tyler) has been so committed to finding the greatness in marriage and leading us towards it." That's EXACTLY where you want your marriage to go! So if you're ready to "rebrand" your marriage from good, ordinary, or even deeply disappointing, to simply "GREAT," this helpful, hopeful, hands-on book is a must-read.
John Trent, president of Strong Families and author of The Blessing
What I love about this book is that speaks to your heart and your mind which honestly is rare in a lot marriage books. It's real, humorous and insightful which is also surprisingly refreshing. Love is a wild ride as we know. It's ever changing and extremely crazy at times but I am happy to say that I will have this book on board with me as a companion during its adventure. Very thankful for the truth in these pages, very thankful indeed.
