More in Love Today Than on Your Wedding Day? It’s Possible!
Every marriage—whether it’s good, bad, or a mix of both—can be better. But what does it take to make the sparks fly in a marriage of five months or fifty years?
James and Betty Robison, co-hosts of the LIFE Today television program, have shared many good times and tough times in their almost 50 years as a couple. What are the secrets that cause them to say “we are more in love now than ever before”?
In this book, which brims over with down-home wisdom, James and Betty reveal how a committed, growing, lifelong relationship is built and sustained. They don’t pretend to be experts, but they have found in their real-world marriage the priceless treasure of a deepening love.
In a dialogue format, which highlights the candor, fun, and respect that typify their relationship, James and Betty offer no-nonsense advice on marital issues like expectations, trust, past baggage, money, conflict resolution, sex, parenting, communication, and more. Above all they emphasize that with God at the center of marriage, all good things are possible. No matter how serious the challenges—even in the aftermath of heartbreak and betrayal, any couple can experience the fulfillment of living in love.
Includes questions for reflection and discussion.
