After resolving communication meltdowns, finding time together is the number one relational need of most couples. Where does it go? We try to make it. Save it. Seize it. Buy it. And borrow it. And yet time continues to elude too many couples. At the heart of this book is the renowned Better Love Assessment, which helps you uncover your unique time style: Accommodator, Processor, Dreamer, or Planner. Once you know your time style and that of your spouse, this book will show you how to leverage them for powerful results. Your Time-Starved Marriage helps you:
- Dispel the two lies every time-starved couple believes.
- Maximize the minutes that matter most in your marriage.
- Recoup the time you've been leaving on the table.
- Understand why "loving on borrowed time" is lethal to your love life.
- And discover how to "get a grip on the time of your life."

What People are Saying About This
'This book is priceless!' Dr. Gary Smalley, Author
'Marriage has many stress factors, but none is greater than the pressure of time, or the lack of it. An intimate, caring, and supportive relationship requires time, but where do we find it? In 'Your Time-Starved Marriage,' the Parrotts deal with the real world and offer real answers. I highly recommend that you make time to read this book.' Gary D. Chapman, Ph.D., Author
