Overview

You planned for the first day of your marriage… Are you planning for the last?

While a wonderful wedding day is important, it’s the last day of marriage that really counts. Will the last day of your marriage come prematurely through divorce? Will it be filled with regrets as you sit at the funeral of your spouse? Or, by God’s grace, will the last day be a day to rejoice in the life you lived together?

Pastor Mark Driscoll and his wife, Grace, want you to finish well on the last day. Through their book Real Marriage and this eleven-week, DVD-based study, they share practical help and hope with people just like them—who entered marriage a complete mess—or who are planning to be married someday and want to avoid some sticky pitfalls in the future.

The Real Marriage DVD-Based Study Kit is uniquely designed for groups of all sizes, and for those married or considering marriage. Each DVD session features Mark and Grace sharing not only the struggles and successes in their own marriage, but also important lessons they have taken from their experience counseling countless couples. Together they tackle the tough issues such as friendship with your spouse, pornography and sexual assault, submission and respect, and sexual intimacy in marriage. Each session in the Participant’s Guide provides engaging group study questions and essential homework for husbands, wives, and singles alike, with the goal of experiencing the grace of Christ.

God desires for your marriage to be full of joy and happiness as it glorifies His Son. Jesus makes such marriage possible through His death and resurrection.

The Real Marriage DVD-Based Study Kit includes:

  • Eleven 10- to 15-minute video sessions featuring Pastor Mark and Grace Driscoll
  • One Participant’s Guide designed for individuals, couples, and small groups
  • One Leader’s Guide to help aid in group facilitation
  • Online church resources, sermon outlines, research, and more available at www.PastorMark.tv

Additional Real Marriage Participant’s Guides can be purchased separately (ISBN 978-1-4185-5042-4)

    This DVD-based study kit is meant to accompany Mark and Grace Dr

    This DVD-based study kit is meant to accompany Mark and Grace Driscoll's book "Real Marriage-The Truth About Sex, Friendship, & Life Together". The kit includes a leader's guide, a study guide for non-leading participants, and a DVD of short (15-20 minute) discussion-starters featuring the two authors. (Disclaimer: my copy was provided free of charge for review purposes)

    It starts out in an amusing way: Mark and Grace Driscoll are sitting in the church building where they exchanged vows nearly two decades ago. Interspersed with their commentary are clips of their actual wedding. Both are recognizable, but very different. Seeing a 20-year-old Mark Driscoll is a bit jarring.

    As for the content, it's a good mix of the two talking about their own experiences, struggles, and memories, as well as the lessons learned, which can be applied to most any marriage.

    I like it. The clips are interesting, the questions insightful, and the material challenging. One potential issue is the frank talk about sex. While it's good for a couple to discuss together, I'm not sure how it would work in a small group setting.

    Real Marriage dvd study kit by the Driscolls

    I requested the Real Marriage dvd study kit on December 7th. Today is December21st and it has not arrived so i must assume that the product is not yet ready or lost in transit.
    I have reviewed many books for Booksneeze and indeed, believe it is the best reviews program in existance but it has never taken this long to receive the product. Additionally it was only available for one day : that leads me to think it is not ready yet.
    I was looking forward to reading Marks work because back when I enjoyed facebook, I would read many of his daily vespers. mark is a preacher in Kentucky, and he will respond to feedback about his writing.
    Hopefully someday this product will arrive and I will have the pleasure of posting a review...but 2 weeks is as long as I can wait for arrival of material.
