Item description for The First Years of Forever by Ed Wheat & Gloria Okes Perkins...

Overview
Written as a marriage handbook to be read and then referred to again and again, The First Years of Forever focuses on the first years of marriage, providing much needed counseling.

Publishers Description
Nearly half of all serious marital problems develop in the first two years of marriage; yet on the average, couples who seek counseling for the first time have already been married seven years. This five-years counseling gap allows more than enough time for the mortal wounding of a marriage. The First Years of Forever closes the gap by providing much needed, but hard to obtain, counseling for engaged or newly married couples. It is written as a marriage handbook to be read and then referred to again and again. Dr. Ed Wheat, co-author of the best-selling Love Life for Every Married Couple, draws on his training and experiences as a family physician and certified sex therapist to prepare couples for their lifelong journey together. The First Years of Forever provides the practical wisdom most people have to learn the hard way -- or not at all. It tells how to develop skills in communicating with each other and resolving conflicts. And most important, it demonstrates the difference Jesus Christ can make in the quality of marriage.

Reviews - What do customers think about First Years Of Forever?

May have saved our marriage...  Apr 22, 2003
When I bought this book for my husband and I we had been married for about 1 1/2 years. "Things" were really ruff and we were having a hard time getting along and communicating effectively. We new for sure we loved eachother and we were serious about the commitment we made to eachother and to God; so I went in search of a resource. I bought this book; booked a suite at a romantic hotel in Washington DC; and we spent a whole weekend reading the book, rediscovering eachother and learning how to comminicate and love eachother for a life time. We have and will go through "things"; but now with prayer and the fundamental lessons we took from this book - we get through them and they are far and few between. I recommend this book to every engaged couple I know; and married couples having "issues" :)
 
Great book to help improve communication  Jan 18, 2001
I believe this book really helped me to better understand how to communicate with my husband. It really made me think about how I talked with him and how that affected our relationship. I thought it could be better however in how it was presented. Could be a little dry at times. Beneficial to any relationship.
 
kick in the head  Jul 18, 2000
This is a great book, I read it over every so often just for a reality check, it has great examples, quotes, stories and wonderful Christian principals. It really makes you think about how to relate better to your mate, and understand why we do the things we do sometimes. It help me see what I should be doing and what to expect. I think so many books like this tell you things I would hope we should know, but fail to practice. I really wish husbands and wifes would read this book together, they maybe surprised to find out this is not like any other book off the shelf and they would have nothing to lose only something to gain in their relationship. Sometimes we just need a kick in the head sometimes. We can seek out friends for advice,counselors, but we should first be seeking God, He will help us better than anyone could possibly, but God does use books and people and I believe He can use this book to help us. I hope you will get this book you won't be dissappointed.

Outstanding in breadth and content  Nov 27, 1999
My wife and I received this book in our church's 6-week pre-marital counceling seminar. The book encompasses just about everything we learned in the seminar in an easy-to-read manner, with great examples, memorable stories, and quotes from other authors that are pure gold. It receives my highest recommendation.
