Dr. Chapman describes the 4 seasons of marriage and the 7 strategies couples can use to turn their marriage into a spring/summer season of marriage. I think what I got out of this book is that a fulfilling marriage takes *a lot* of work! That's obvious now but it wasn't before I got married. I think all couples who are planning to get married should read this so they can put those strategies into practice before their marriage drifts into the fall/winter phase. This book would also help those marriages that are already in the fall/winter season of marriage---experiencing despair, hopelessness, isolation, etc.---and move into a spring/summer marriage. Dr. Chapman includes examples from marriages throughout to illustrate his ideas. The book also contains a study guide in the back. I think it's a good book to keep on your shelf to use as a reference.

This book compares stages in marriage to seasons, and gives strategies to move from tough places into 'seasons' of health - and additionally, gives you the tools and tips you need to stay there. There is a "Marital Seasons Profile" you can take, Q&A's with lots of real-life stories, and an in-depth study guide. He provides a great deal of both theory as well as practical information, presented in an easily understood way.
It is a pleasure to recommend this book to anyone who is looking to strengthen their marriage, make some changes, learn new skills, become a better communicator....the list goes on and on. You will enjoy it and learn a lot, too!
