Obstacles and challenges are a normal part of married life. Here’s how you get through them.

This book will lead you to understand what happens when two people tie the proverbial knot. The trials and obstacles that inevitably follow are nothing unusual—how they are handled is what helps distinguish a successful marriage from an unsuccessful one.

Specific advice about handling finances, keeping house, sexual relations, bringing up children, and other very important matters will not be found here. Instead, The Good, The Bad, and The Beautiful focuses on the relationship between husband and wife, for from this flows the motivation, energy, and wisdom to deal with the problems and challenges facing married couples. Unless you make this relationship your main concern, all your efforts in other areas of married life will be out of balance and ultimately unsuccessful.

If you are seeking a successful and fulfilling marriage, or the restoration of a failing one, you will find meaning and hope in the joys of learning and practicing God's blessed plan for husband and wife.
