What Season of Marriage Are You In?

Spring, summer, fall, winter. . . marriages are perpetually in a state of transition, continually moving from one season to another - perhaps not annually, as in nature, but just as certainly and consistently. Sometimes we find ourselves in winter - discouraged, detached, and dissatisfied; other times, we experience springtime with its openness, hope, and anticipation. On other occasions, we bask in the warmth of summer - comfortable, relaxed, enjoying life. And then comes fall with its uncertainty, negligence, and apprehension. The cycle repeats itself many times throughout the life of a marriage, just as the seasons repeat themselves in nature.

Respected marriage expert Dr. Gary Chapman breaks new ground with THE FOUR SEASONS OF MARRIAGE, a book guaranteed to change the way you and your spouse understand your marriage. He explains:

* the unique characteristics found in each season of marriage
* seven strategies for making the most of each season
* how to move a marriage out of one season and into another
*strategies for unification when you and your spouse have differing perceptions of your marriage
* and much more!

Use the provided Marital Seasons Profile - a questionnaire built on Dr. Chapman's experience conducting numerous marriage seminars every year - to identify the season of your marriage.

The seasons of marriage come and go. Each one holds the potential for emotional health and happiness, and each one has its challenges. The purpose of this book is to describe these recurring seasons of marriage, help you and your spouse identify which season your marriage is in, and show you how to enhance your marriage in all four seasons.

Life enriching
5 stars By C, Jun 12 2007
This book is amazing. Reading this book has helped me to understand my marriage so much better. Gary shows such insight into the cycles of marriage and I believe every married person would benefit from reading this. The strategies outlined give a great starting place for anyone who wants a better marriage, no matter what season your marriage is in, or even if you're the only one who seems to want a better marriage. This book would make a fantastic wedding or anniversary gift and I think it should be issued to every couple on their wedding day. The strategies Gary outlines are based on sound biblical values. A must-read for anyone who wants their marriage to be everything God intended it to be.
