A Christian relationship expert says difficult marriages can become rewarding if you move past negative emotions, are constructive in influencing your partner, and focus on improving your own attitudes and behavior. Reminding listeners that selfless love can breathe life into the most painful relationships, Chapman uses stories from his ministry to show how providing security and taking the initiative can change spouses who are irresponsible, abusive, controlling, unfaithful, depressed, or chemically dependent. Though the author all but rules out divorce, his insights sound more empowering than constricting because of Chris Fabry's upbeat performance. His lively phrasing and genuine connection with Chapman's optimism will help motivate listeners to make the extra effort in their marriages, even when all hope for happiness seems lost.
