Marriage is an adventure with lots of unknowns. Every couple will have plenty of questions about how to successfully weave two lives into one. And yet, when it comes to asking questions about the most personal, intimate human relationship we’ll ever have, we often become ineffectively reserved. Why this hesitancy, even though we often desperately want answers? Revealing the nitty-gritty concerns and insecurities we have about our marriages takes a kind of vulnerability most of us fail to express. And so we continue to drift along—learning by trial and error and hoping for the best.
That’s where The Healthy Marriage Handbook comes in. Here are the answers to more than 200 confidential, personal questions that real people asked the editors of Marriage Partnership. It’s almost like having a trusted, wise couple come alongside—ready at a moment’s notice to help you safely clear the inevitable hurdles husbands and wives encounter on the road to marital happiness. The advice is time-tested, offered with compassion and understanding, and, most importantly, based on the counsel of God’s Word, the Bible. Indeed, it is only upon this rock that marriage can become what God intends.
