At the age of 23 Fraser found himself married to a bipolar and deeply depressive 31 year-old woman. The subsequent years were a constant struggle between his desire to be a loving and supportive Godly man, and the reality of being married to a woman who brought division, torment and the occult into his house and the lives of their children. Despite escalating violence, he persevered through 20 years of seemingly unanswered prayer with contradictory advice from a polarised church community. Should he persist in a marriage that made a mockery of the Christian faith? How was a leader in a Christian organisation to justify continuing in a household that emaciated his calling and stifled his walk with God?
Married to the Enemy is a practical, Biblical guide to identifying and finding the resolve to fix or to finalise a failing marriage. The author shows readers how to take care of the past and move forward in a new relationship with the strength and determination of a super hero!
