When you marry the person of your dreams, husbands and wives alike have high expectations. The wife feels as if she is beginning a romantic journey to beautiful, exotic ports of call that will keep her forever in a state of deep joy and love. The husband feels that he has found a first mate that will follow him on an exciting and fulfilling journey leading his family to a state of success and happiness. Then, the everyday tasks as well as the demands of life seem to get you off course. As the months and years pass, you grow further apart from the person of your dreams and wonder how and why he or she has changed. You wonder if you are stuck on this course through storm after storm with no end in sight and may even contemplate abandoning ship or beginning another journey with someone else. In Sailing the Seven C's of Marriage, author Amy Bindas uses the compass and guidebook given to us in the Bible to get marriages back on course. You can have the marriage you have always dreamed about. There is smooth sailing ahead!
