When you said, “I do,” you entered marriage with high hopes, dreaming it would be supremely happy.

An experienced marriage and family counselor, Gary Chapman speaks to those whose spouse is any of the following:

Marriage has the same potential to be miserable as it does to be blissful. Read Loving Your Spouse When You Feel Like Walking Away to learn how you can turn things around.

My Review:
 When you sign on the dotted line and get married, I don't think anyone intends on it going badly. But after you add the stresses of life, a mortgage, children and everything else that comes next--your spouse doesn't seem much like the best friend you married that day. And if you are like most married couples you push all the resentment and negativity deep down or aside and before long it is starting to come out at an alarming rate and things seem to fall apart.

 But lucky for us, God says that doesn't mean its over--not just yet. Gary Chapman is a familiar name he has helped many marriages across the globe and he does it in a way to promote God and what God sees as a successful marriage. He takes different types of marriages whether it is from a workaholic situation or a controlling one--he does this with several different types to help us figure out how we can make it work instead of walking away.

 This is a great book and has many helpful suggestions to use in our marriage right away. I have tested some myself and they do work. We have been married 24 years and over the years things can go from stale to completely unresolvable in no time. This book helps you counterattack the devils snares and can bring a very rocky marriage to strong ground once again.
