Item Description...
Overview
Every couple hopes to have a happy marriage. Why then do so few reach this goal? Author John Bosio believes that it is only achievable when God and faith are part of the mix. Here he offers couples a blueprint for happiness based on the wisdom of the Christian Tradition. He challenges couples to overcome selfishness by learning to love each other as Christ loves. He identifies and focuses on six key aspects of a loving marriage, and he uses stories and examples to illustrate each. This is a wonderful, open, realistic, and encouraging book about marriage. Highly recommended for married couples, engaged couples, and marriage enrichment groups. John Bosio is a husband and father, a seasoned family life educator, a former marriage and family therapist, an adjunct faculty member of Aquinas Primetime College, and a global human resources manager for a Fortune 100 corporation. He and his wife Teri have been married 35 years.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Deacon Mickey Rose  Jun 19, 2008
This book combines all of the viewpoints necessary for a true in-depth reflection on the value of marriage. It combines real life stories, with God's stories and expands them through reflections and end notes. The inspirational values of the words of life and God are so needed to those newly married. It will give them a solid Christian model for their survival in our complex secular culture. I will be giving this book out to each couple that I counsel or witness their Sacramental Marriage. This book will also be included in any wedding gifts I give. It also has great value for those who need a restart in their trodden marriage. I'm sure, over time, it will become part of the Pre Cana process and Marriage Encounter Retreats.
 
Highly Recommended  Jun 11, 2008
John Bosio has authored a wonderful book on the Catholic understanding and theology of the sacrament of Marriage. This "blueprint" for a loving and lasting marriage uses the sharing and witness of real people in real-life relationships and challenges. We especially enjoyed how the author uses scripture passages to solidify and support his thesis that God needs to be an integral part of any happy and fruitful marriage. Each chapter offers an invitation to reflect upon one's personal story in relationship to one's spouse. We highly recommend this very readable book to all married couples regardless of how long you have been married. The book also makes an appropriate gift to those preparing for marriage.
 
Highly Recommended for Married Couples  Jun 10, 2008
Mr. Bosio has a genuine desire to help Christian husbands and wives realize the fullest potential for their marriage. He also displays a genius for striking the perfect balance between scriptural reflection and a focus on the stories of individual couples in this slender volume of great virtue. If you feel that you and your spouse have lost something important along your journey together, this book will help you see your marriage and your spouse in the light of God's creative love. This work is particularly useful in helping people uncover the self-absorption that characterizes much of their interactions with their spouse. I highly recommend this work to anyone wishing to better understand the classic barriers and the divine potential for their marriage.
 
Proclailm your faith boldly  Jun 10, 2008
Happy Together: The Catholic Blueprint for a Loving Marriage fulfills the obligation every Christian has: In this age of failed relationships and fractured families, we must never allow the isolation of the married from the community of believers. Because Jesus chose a weddng as the occasion for his first public miracle, so also are we are called to remember and to remind our society of this historical event. Author John Bosio skilfully wove together the wisdom of many in crafting this book. In doing so, he gently reminds the reader that people far beyond the couple engaged in marriage have a vested interest in that single marriage's success. Thank you, John, for writing such a good and timely book. I will use it in counseling those about to be and those currently intertwined in marriage, and in counseling their children, as well.
