Overview

Ken thinks he and Becky are just having fun together. Becky is already picking out bridesmaid dresses.

Melissa has decided to break up with Tony. Tony thinks Melissa is “the one.”

Are miscommunications like this unavoidable? What’s the best way to end a relationship–or to take it to a more serious level?

Chances are, you’ve heard of “The Talk.” Every romantic relationship comes to the point where things need to be defined or redefined: Do we become romantically exclusive? Is our relationship ready (or not ready) to move to the next level? What are our boundaries and expectations? Is it possible to “just be friends”?

Getting all the cards on the table. Communicating openly and honestly. It sounds like a great idea, right? The tough question is, how do you communicate in a way that significantly benefits you both–and doesn’t leave you dreading those important conversations in the future?

In Define the Relationship, you’ll find everything you need to know about positively defining and redefining your current or future dating relationships. Written in light of the complexities of dating today, this long-needed resource will help you avoid painful and confusing dating dilemmas and experience instead the freedom of well-defined, spiritually grounded, and truly rewarding relationships.

From the Publisher
Define the Relationship takes a refreshing approach to dating by shining light on the subtle pitfalls couples face today. In an entertaining, honest, and life-changing way, Jeramy and Jerusha address things such as good communication skills, how to guard emotional as well as sexual purity, and what it means to have a God-centered self. Jeramy and Jerusha Clark fill a huge vacuum in Christian resources on dating by writing this book.”

Loaded with examples and experience, Jeramy and Jerusha masterfully walk through how to communicate in relationships at every level–from first dates to final breakups. A valuable resource, not only for dating but also for building strong foundations for communication in marriage.”
–Paul Fleischmann, president of National Network of Youth Ministries

“Jeramy and Jerusha not only have a heart for God, they have a heart for helping young people build healthy relationships. In this helpful book, they offer tips for communication that can set any relationship on the right course. Define the Relationship helps you learn communication skills that lead to honesty, openness, and true intimacy–and that’s the way God desires our relationships to be defined.”
–Laurie Polich, speaker, author, youth ministry professor
