Making a Marriage Beautiful: Lifelong Love, Joy, and Intimacy Start with You

Dorothy Littell Greco and Christopher Greco. David C. Cook, $22.99 trade paper (256p) ISBN 978-0-7814-1408-1
The Grecos, who have been married for more than 25 years, help couples of faith better understand how their own pasts, presents, and views of the future affect the strength and stability of their marital bond. The Grecos are very frank about their marriage struggles. Dorothy, whose voice primarily directs the text, eloquently describes how she and her spouse have chosen to work through life’s difficulties together. She and her husband are both strong-willed and determined, but rather than allowing themselves to chart separate courses for their own individual well-being, the Grecos opt daily for a joint position of selflessness and sacrificial love. The authors also highlight other couples whose personalities, divergent backgrounds, and childhood experiences cause ongoing strain and stress in their marriages, and discuss the strategies that have worked for getting through the tough periods. In this wise, winsome book, readers will find practical tools for understanding themselves and their partners, and learning how a robust faith in God can equip couples to face whatever life throws their way.
