(1 John 4:15 NIV) True love is attitude, not feeling. The type of love that can keep couples together forever is not a feeling but an attitude. Sometimes in marriage, couples may notice that their love for each other is fading away.

God never created a marriage to fail, hurt, or be frustrated. The only reason marriage is failing today is simply because we are trying to do different things from what God designed it to be. Every couple has 100 percent chances for a successful marriage, only if they can do it the way God planned it. The problem is not with the marriage, it's couples' ignorance in understanding each other. The best couples are the couple that realised they have many differences and make every effort to work on their differences. If you are already married but going through a rough patch or simply want to strengthen your bond by allowing God to restore your marriage, this particular book is for you. If you're single, contemplating marriage, choosing a life partner is one of the most important decisions to make in life. The choice of life partner you make can determine the quality of your life in the future much more than any other decision you make in your life. Many singles spend more time developing academic knowledge, deciding where to go to college, choosing the cause to study, building physical fitness, but spending little time or no time on choosing the right future partner which has led to many failures in marriages today. If you give God a chance to choose for you, he can give you a description of the kind of person that he desires you to marry. For you to have a successful marriage, and if you want God's blessing over your marriage, which you do, then it's better to listen to God about the kind of person he wants you to marry. Love alone is not enough reason to marry.

The long-term success of a marriage depends heavily on how well spouses adjust during the early years. Getting good advice early on helps couples manage expectations and encourages them to prepare by discussing key issues. SO, YOU WANT TO GET MARRIED? consists of 12 letters that the author wrote to an engaged couple some years ago. The informal letter format provides a useful tool to share insights that are significant to young lovers who are in the process of courtship or who are engaged. The author’s sincere prayer is that these pages will touch readers’ lives in a deep and wonderful way, and serve as reminders that Jesus Christ is the Author of marriage and as such is the Way, the Truth, and the Life in this as in every area of life.
These feelings are mistaken for love and the heart gets married. Love, unlike sexual intimacy alone, is the ongoing decision to act in the best interest of another individual and the ability to put another person's well being first.

Alice was a raven-haired beauty who fell in love with easygoing James. They dated for about eight years, during which time they were monogamous, sexually intimate, and eventually lived together. They finally married in an elegant weekend celebration only to divorce before their second anniversary. What happened? How indeed can a couple date for so long, act married in most ways, and make such a terrible mistake? What Alice and James did not know was their hearts married long before their wedding day and that, in fact, was the problem. They are just one of many couples that you will meet in My Heart Got Married and I Didn't Know It. This nonfiction, self-help book introduces and names the concept of heart marriage as a relationship in which a couple becomes intimately bound in a profound way; yet they have not clearly or intentionally articulated the desire or commitment to be married. With today's relationship trends, this occurs often, and as a result couples are short-circuiting the natural developmental process of getting to know each other in a way that is critical in deciding whether the relationship is right for the long-term commitment of marriage. Because heart marriage occurs silently and unannounced, it is a perilous path that can lead to much unhappiness. My Heart Got Married and I Didn't Know It will help couples recognize if they are heart married, discern whether ending the relationship through a heart divorce is warranted, identify strategies to prevent heart marriage from occurring, and outline steps to transition from a heart marriage into a fulfilling, committed, and legal marriage.

Author: Catharine Maria Sedgwick
Publisher: U of Nebraska Press
Married or Single?, published in 1857, was Catharine Maria Sedgwick’s final novel and a fitting climax to the career of one of antebellum America’s first and most successful woman writers. Insisting on women’s right to choose whether to marry, Married or Single? rejects the stigma of spinsterhood and offers readers a wider range of options for women in society, recognizing their need and ability to determine the course of their lives. Sedgwick’s touching, witty, and shrewdly observant novel centers on Grace Herbert, a New York City socialite who must negotiate the marriage market and also learn to develop her own character and take control of her own destiny. The story merges a wide range of popular American literary forms—including the seduction novel, the conversion narrative, the novel of education, and social reform fiction—and provides a window on many of the cultural and political anxieties of the 1850s beyond marriage, including immigration, slavery, and urban poverty. Sedgwick’s lifelong concern with women’s duties to the nation as citizens is demonstrated through her depiction of exemplary women of various backgrounds and circumstances who illustrate the idea that becoming a worthy human being is more important than becoming a wife, especially in a democratic society.

“This book is light. If you got married in darkness, read it; it will help your marriage to come out of darkness.” God is the Author of the marriage institution.

These factors, if obeyed, will make good marriages better and better marriages best. The author expounds on the basic problems of marriage, such as: - sexual matters, - financial matters, - the problem of children in marriage, - servants in a home, as well as the thorny problem of - family members. It is a book to read in order to find a lasting solution to these problems. It is a tool that the Holy Spirit can use to make your married life pleasant.

Publisher: Moody Publishers
What does it mean for a husband to love his wife? Three things, says Tony Evans: a husband must act as his wife’s savior, sanctifier, and satisfier. It is by living out these three principles that a godly marriage will blossom and flourish. In For Married Men Only, each of these principles is explored and explained using real-life examples. How can a husband be his wife’s savior? By learning to love her as Christ loved the church. What about sanctifier? By dying to self and modeling sacrificial love, no matter what the result. And satisfier? By studying and serving his wife so he can fulfill her needs, just as Christ humbled Himself for our sakes. First published in 2002 as Tony Evans Speaks Out on a Man’s Role in the Home, this booklet has sold nearly 40,000 copies. Use it alone or with the companion volume, For Married Women Only.

In Very Married: Field Notes on Love and Fidelity, Pershey opens the book on all things marital. With equal parts humor and intelligence, Pershey speaks frankly about the challenges and consolations of modern marriage. As she shares her own tales of bliss and blunder, temptation and deliverance, Pershey invites readers to commit once again to the joyful and difficult work of cherishing another person.
