Anger begins as frustration, hurt or fear. When you don’t deal with these deeper emotions, they intensify and fester into resentment and rage—and the affectionate intimacy you long for in your relationship is driven away. Yet everyone experiences anger at one time or another . . . so how can you cope when it surfaces and strengthen the connection between you and your spouse? Popular relationship expertDr.Gary Smalley, bestselling author of The Language of Love and The Blessing, suggests that you have three options when anger rears its head: You can stuff it, you can spew it, or you can study it. With his pastor and good friend, Ted Cunningham, Smalley peels back anger’s layers to expose the emotional core of fury and bitterness. They invite you to take an honest look at the pain that lies at the heart of anger and show you how sharing that pain leads to deep intimacy and a marriage that will go the distance. Don’t let anger undermine your most precious relationship. Instead, learn how you can build an unshakeable foundation of love, trust and confidence when you forgive.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
In a fit of anger, I ran a search for books that could help me deal with mine in order to improve my marriage. Patience has never been one of my virtues; I should have better researched the authors of this book before I made the decision to buy it. This book is full of antidotes and stories about how flawed the authors perceive themselves to be, and how they think they have overcome their flaws to become joyous husbands and overall better people. I'll make it easy for you: Obey your husband, forgive and forget, pray, pray, pray. There. Now you don't have to waste the 13.30 for the download and the time it takes to skim through. There is not one shred of practical, well-informed, professional advice in this book. And now that I have shared this information with you, I'm not so angry any more.
This book offers alot of great guidance in letting go of past hurt to built a better relationship. even if the other person is not religious. I was able to meet one of the authors and he is a really great guy.
