Reviews - What do our customers think?
Not for faint of heart  Dec 10, 2009
This book is for the spouse who is choosing to stay in what is turning out to be a very difficult marriage. If you're in an abusive situation, by no means are the authors encouraging you to stay. But for those who are in situations where your spouse is simply unwilling to change, and, as a result, can be extremely difficult to live with, then this book may be for you. It offers hope because it affords the opportunity to really take a good, long look inside the heart - your own - to identify the longings that are going unmet and begin to work through/thrive in the midst of those longings. It's about giving up the martyr act in marriage and it also is stepping away from the "happily ever after" fairy tale. It's striving for something far more meaningful with the power of the Holy Spirit working through you to identify what's going on in the heart and teaching you how to maximize what you have and seek Christ for what you don't. Excellent book - one that is beneficial to read several times to pick up things you may have missed the first time. My copy is highlighted everywhere!! I also highly recommend another book that I liked: Attract Men Like Bees to Honey: The Magic Formula For Putting Him Under Your Spell
 
premature but can't wait....  Dec 9, 2009
Just bought the book from the Focus on the Family site after hearing a brief interview with the authors. I'm just finishing my 3rd beer before going to bed because my spouse doesn't care if I'm there or not.....problem is evident...I'll post after getting through the book...read the first 20 pages on the website and really looking forward to learning more....this seems like a great resource for folks like me who have tried about everything and are still looking for answers.
Hope it sheds some light....I'll let you know....
 
Best book on marriage  Oct 23, 2009
This is absolutely the BEST book on marriage; I know I've ready many of them.
Some very biblical, practical help for those in troubled marriages.
 
A helpful book  Oct 9, 2009
No matter what struggles you may have in your marriage, big or small, this book could be helpful to you. It is easy to point the finger at our spouse, but the authors help you see your part in the challenges in your marriage. They do this in a way that isn't blaming or condemning, but freeing and enlightening. They also help you gain compassion for the personal challenges your spouse may face in making changes as well. My heart was softened and my resolve strengthened.
 
Great book; needs more "thriving" examples  Jun 28, 2009
As stated by the other reviewers, this is a very good book. As the Misja's descibe the reasons for marital problems, they provide short stories about couples to illustrate the marital problems (names changed, of course). That gave them a lot of credibility in my eyes, as I read accounts of real-world behavior and emotions that I could relate to ("yup, done that", "sounds like me/us", etc.). They then proceed into their ideas for thriving despite the difficult marriage.

However, the "thriving" part of the book is seriously underweighted compared to the problem descriptions. The numerous short stories about marital problems needs to be balanced with just-as-numerous short stories about how people thrive despite their difficult marriage. There was only one short story about thriving that is comparable to the short stories about marital problems: the story of Patty thriving in "Patty and Dave" on page 212 (it is a 214 page book). This gave me an idea what thriving would look like in real life for Patty. The book needs more of these! Ideally one-for-one with the couples with marital problems earlier in the book. I need help putting skin on the Misja's ideas for how to thrive. I need to see what thriving would look like in a real life.

If you are looking for a good description of difficult marriages, and ideas for thriving despite a difficult marriage, this book is worth the read.

I hope the Misja's write a revised version that adds more thriving stories. I think that would add immensely to the usefulness of the book by helping people (like me) visualize what thriving looks in real life.
