Publishers Description
Driven by the pain of divorce he's seen in the lives of students, friends, and family members, Gushee looks closely at the causes of the collapse of modern marriage. His scriptural approach offers central skills and virtues of successful married life based on four foundational concepts: the creation purposes of marriage, the covenant structure of marriage, the kingdom possibilities of marriage, and the community context of marriage.
Engaged and married couples, parents, lay leaders, children in troubled families, and children of divorce will find hope that marriage can again become a successful and sacred institution. An excellent resource for starting a marriage ministry in the local church, it will help men and women keep faith with one another-and with their children. Includes an appendix featuring interviews of children of divorce as well as an extensive suggested reading list.

Reviews - What do customers think about Getting Marriage Right: Realistic Counsel for Saving and Strengthening Relationships?

Excellent insight into the institution of marriage  May 9, 2004
In today's world there is no shortage of books that will claim to contain all the solutions you need for a great marriage, however they all pale in comparison to the insights contained in this book. By examining the covenantal nature of marriage, Dr. Gushee gets at the heart of what separates a great marriage from one that tragically ends as another statistic.
