Marriage 911: How God Saved Our Marriage (and Can Save Yours, Too!)

Marriage 911Authors Greg and Julie Alexander had decided that divorce was the only way out of what they thought was a lifeless, loveless marriage. Basing their life together on the things society says are important took them spiraling downward until they literally hit rock bottom.

Quite unexpectedly, a faithful priest guided them back to the truths of the Church, and they were able to restore the love they once had for each other. Marriage 911 chronicles Greg and Julie's journey back to marital happiness built on a strong Catholic faith and offers emergency hope to struggling couples.

When Divorce Is Not an OptionWhen Divorce Is Not an Option

Dr. Gregory Popcak's clinical experience and recent research show that the difference between happy and unhappy marriages lies in the habits -- both good and bad -- that are practiced in the home.

In this book, subtitled "How to Heal Your Marriage & Nurture Lasting Love," you'll discover the simple steps needed to root out behavior that leaves you resentful and demoralized, and to begin practicing positive habits that facilitate mutual respect and cultivate admiration.

The Good Marriage Guide: The Practical Guide to Improving Your Relationship

The Good Marriage GuideJohn Farrelly's compact, concise, and informative guide is for couples who want to save or strengthen their relationship and avoid divorce. Based on over 15 years' experience in counseling, mental health, and social research it provides psychological and social insights for couples to transform, consolidate, and enjoy their marriage and relationship. It offers insights on avoiding conflict, overcoming infidelity, separating from our family of origin, maintaining work-life balance, parenting, and effective communication. In modern and understandable language, it examines couples' key challenges and helps them confront and master life's inevitable crises while maintaining the strength of their marriage.

"Couples should be helped to realize that surmounting a crisis need not weaken their relationship.… Each crisis becomes an apprenticeship in growing closer together or learning a little more about what it means to be married. There is no need for couples to resign themselves to an inevitable downward spiral or a tolerable mediocrity” (no. 232)."
