Product Description

"If you and your mate aren't living according to God's plan, you're destined to experience the disease that causes marriages to die: isolation."

This award-winning book by Dennis and Barbara Rainey provides a workable strategy for defeating isolation and keeping your marriage vital and intimate. Included are proven principles and hands-on exercises to help you:

  • understand the cultural and personal forces that isolate you from your spouse
  • manage your schedules, workloads, roles, and responsibilities without losing sight of each other.
  • allow for (and enjoy) indivual differences while maintianing unity
  • build an atmosphere of cooperation by meeting each other more than halfway
  • "affair proof" your relationship (or heal it after the fact)
  • grow closer during hard times instead of letting your troubles pull you apart
  • create a "safe" atmosphere for transparent communication
  • discover the secrets of a mutually rewarding sex life
  • leave a legacy of love and unity to your family and friends
