Publisher's Summary

Sunday Times best-selling author Rob Bell is joined in this book by his wife of 20 years, Kristen, to present a new way to make marriage work.

Marriage is complex because people are complicated. You think you're one. But then there are moments when it's shockingly obvious that you're two, with two opinions - whether over politics, childrearing or what you're going to watch on TV.

So how do you stop yourself flaring up when you hit one of these relationship flashpoints and start seeing marriage as a chance for you to learn more about the person you want to know best of all?

Early on in their marriage Rob and Kristen experienced the struggles and fights that come to all couples. They still do. But they quickly learned that a great marriage needs to be focused and nurtured - and that fights should be as productive as possible!

In this inspiring and humorous insight into marriage, the popular husband and wife team explore communication, dealing with relatives, money, sex, petty fights, work and boundaries, as well as love, forgiveness, fidelity, faith and hope - because something special can happen when two people give themselves fully to each other.With extensive discussion points in the endnotes, this easy-to-read book is invaluable for anyone searching for a happy, fulfilling relationship.

Almost there.

The examples are a bit...odd and some parts poorly performed but for non proffesionals- pretty well done. Still some parts are not very well explained and developed according to me.
For me, being married twice I understand very well what it means but I have the feeling that someone "new" to the issue will have lots of "Wait-a-minute-could-you-explain-a-bit-more-about-that" moments.
Yet the book is good. Give lots of work for the mind ...if one is willing to work this out.

Giving this to my young adult kids.

Adding Zimzum to their vocabulary may give them the perspective on how to be married well. I wish had had it! Rather than a dysfunctional family survivor, may they realise their potential, and model marriage for our future generations.

a lovely approach to viewing marriage

i love the idea of a sacred space in marriage and how we need to protect and cherish it. it didn't feel like an overly deep book but there's a few pointers in there that would Defo help any marriage. i enjoyed the reading.
