This book was a great comfort to me at the time of my divorce. I felt as those around me were not able to appreciate the great sorrow for the broken covenant. This book gave meaning to my sorrow! Even in the LDS culture divorce is taken too lightly; this book should be read by everyone making (or breaking) this ETERNAL covenant.
As Satan continues to mount a clever war against marriage and family, many including some of those sealed under covenant have lost sight of the doctrinal and practical underpinnings for covenant marriage and family.
Elder Hafen's book is the best book on this subject I have ever read. It is well written, well researched and doctrinally based. We have six married children. I have asked all of them and their spouses to read it. This book is a clear voice in a world of muddled thinking about marriage and family and the essential role that covenant marriage and family plays in the Plan of Happiness.
