Friends, Partners, and Lovers: What It Takes to Make Your Marriage Work by Kevin A. Thompson
Great marriages don't just happen--they're made, intentionally, day by day. Yet most of us enter the covenant of marriage thinking that the role of spouse will be easy, natural, effortless. Rarely is this true. In fact, the number one cause of divorce isn't adultery or finances or disagreements. It's apathy--a lack of intentional emotional, physical, and mental investment in the relationship.
With engaging stories and clear, simple language, pastor Kevin A. Thompson explains the three critical roles of a spouse--friend, partner, and lover--and shows how to nurture those roles in order to keep a marriage healthy and strong. Using solid biblical principles, he helps couples understand how to grow their friendship, be a supportive partner through the good times and the bad, and develop a healthy and satisfying sex life.
Friends, Partners, and Lovers offers essential insight for couples at any stage of marriage but will be especially helpful to those who are struggling and those who are engaged or newly married and looking to start their marriage on strong footing.
Marriage is hard work, there is not doubt about that. There are few people who do this very well or who write books that I love. This is a book that is well balanced, for the couple that is looking to grow in their marriage, the couple that is struggle in their marriage or the couple that is just starting out. "Friends, Partners & Lovers" is a book that practical, simple and yet thought provoking. I like how the chapters are laid out and I enjoy the questions at the end of the each chapter. I enjoy how Kevin shares stories from his own marriage and experiences. It makes me feel like he more authentic and real, which is important to me when reading a book and relating to it. This book will make your marriage and relationship so much better. I recommend this book to anyone who is dating, engaged or those who are married. I give this book 4.5/5 stars. Thank you to the publishers for providing me a copy. A positive review was not required.
