In 1995, President Gordon B. Hinckley indicated that his greatest concern was the disintegration of marriages and families worldwide. This book was created to address such problems and to provide some perspective and suggestions for LDS couples to “divorce-proof” as well as enrich their marriages. Elder Bruce C. Hafen, a member of the First Quorum of the Seventy, begins the volume with an excellent article adapted from his conference address on covenant (verses contract) marriages. Each of the remaining contributors to this volume is either a professional educator or a marriage counselor in private practice with extensive experiences in working with Latter-day Saint couples. This authoritative and insightful book is an invaluable resource for anyone looking to strengthen his or her marriage relationship.

Best Couples Book I have read.
by Jeff - reviewed on May 01, 2009
As a therapist I am always looking for new worthwhile books to share with and potentially help my clients. This book is by far the best couples book I have read. It is definitely intended for an LDS population the way it seamlessly adds spiritual components to what would otherwise be a great general population couples book. Yet, the spirituality improves the book exponentially. I agree with the other sentiments about the book, newlywed or celebrating a double digit anniversary, this book is for EVERY married couple!
