Does your marriage need a tune-up?
That may sound like a crazy question, or just another thing to put on the to-do list. But whether you are newly married or have celebrated many anniversaries, MARRIAGE TAKES WORK!
LOVE IS A DECISION is a practical, concise, “how-to” workbook designed to help married couples grow closer to each other and to their family members. The handbook contains 136 pages with 16 chapters and 43 exercises that help couples to understand themselves better and improve their relationship. The exercises, extensively field-tested with married and engaged couples, are both enlightening and fun to complete.
I know what you are thinking...
"I don't even have time to get my car tuned-up!"
Granted, we all have a lot to do. But LOVE IS A DECISION takes a complex task and breaks it into three sections: Working on Me, Working on Us, and Working on our Spiritual Lives. Each exercise only takes a few minutes. And you can start and stop at any time.
"But my marriage is fine."
That's great -- let's keep it that way! Do you know your spouse's love language? Learn to identify and appreciate each other's intelligences. When you spouse is down, should you give them a hug, or take on some of their workload? Taking a few minutes to really learn about your spouse's personality style and communication style can make all the difference in your enjoyment of each other.
"Our kids take up all of our free time."
The best thing you can provide your children is happy parents. A couple on the same page provides a strong foundation for children to thrive. LOVE IS A DECISION will help you figure out what "time-bandits" are stealing your time, and how to reclaim that time for you as a couple and as a family.
"We're not that kind of people."
We are all some kind of people. Learn the virtues and challenges that make you who you are, and everyone else who they are. All kinds of people benefit from listening with their head and their heart.
here's the bottom line:
Your marriage is worth it!
Let Charlie & Marty guide you on the journey
for a lifetime of love...
This book’s goals are to deepen individual and mutual self-understanding and to improve communication skills. Effective communication is an acquired skill that requires sustained, hard work. A prerequisite to communicating well is self-understanding. Accordingly, the book first discusses ways to know one’s self better, then ways to communicate better. The chapters include exercises to help learn and apply the concepts and techniques. The exercises are meant to be completed independently, and then shared and discussed. In many cases we take the exercises ourselves and share our results with you. Completing the exercises will require time and effort, but we guarantee that your hard work will be worthwhile.
