Fulfilling Marriages Don’t Just Happen

Truly joyful marriages are a lot of work! In Hidden Keys of a Loving, Lasting Marriage, best-selling author Gary Smalley shares the principles of strong marriages. He points out the common problems between husbands and wives. And he shows how to turn those troubles into teamwork.

Hidden Keys of a Loving, Lasting Marriage explores: * Two reasons why marriages fail * How to meet the needs of your spouse * How a husband’s lack of affection weakens a marriage * Crucial differences between men and women * How to motivate your spouse to listen to you

This book is a combination of Smalley’s earlier published works, If Only He Knew and For Better or For Best. The first half of the book discusses the husband’s part in building a successful relationship. The second half of the book shows how wives can nurture their marriages.

Good marriages require both husband and wife working together to understand, appreciate, and honor one another. This book shows you how to do just that.

A few months ago my wife and I were having some troubles. I was at my best friends house talking about it when he handed me a book called "The Joy of Committed Love." I explained to him that no man would be caught reading a book with that title and he said..."Just open it to the flaged page showing 122 ways that men offend their wives. I read through 50 of them and put the book down...I had done all 50! I picked the book back up and read the last 72...I had done all of them as well! I borrowed the book and read it cover to cover on a business trip, and have been trying to buy my own copy since. "The Joy of Committed Love" has been reprinted as "The Hidden Keys to a Loving and Lasting Marriage." Just as soon as I type my last period I am placing an order for 3 more copies. Nothing in life is guaranteed...but this book worked for me...and now my wife and I could not be happier. If you care about your current relationship...or your next...Buy This Book!

I enjoyed reading this - I'm male, and it made me more sensitive to some things I didn't know about women and relationships. If you order from Amazon, realize that this is two books in one. Gary Smalley actually wrote two books about relationship problems. "If only he knew" was written for men, and "For better or best" is written for women. The two books discuss similar topics, but with a little different slant. They are combined in this volume. So if you purchase this, you shouldn't need to purchase either of the other two.

Format: Paperback
This is the book that got my husband and I back on the same page in our relationship. We had become just parents, nothing more. Although it has a Christian spin, the author doesn't try to sugar coat the dealings that go on b/t a man and a woman. He gives it to you straight. My husband said he was dead on in the section that tells the wife how the husband is feeling. But what amazed me is how on point he was about the woman's point of view. It was downright scary. Best of all, my husband "got it". Something I couldn't get accross verbally or he stopped listening to me. Whatever. Get this book if you are about to give up on your relationship and just ask you partner to read the chapters on your point of view. You will open the doors of communication. Wonderful insightful work

This is an excellent resource for applying great marriage principles into marriage. These ideas are real marriage enhancers that can help anyone, whether the marriage is on the rocks or doing ok. I can agree with most theories on marriage, but this book gives actual hands-on advice that will transform your marriage

What a terrific book. For those of you women or men trying to get through the difficult struggles of marriage, this book can really help. It is perfect for those women who always buy these marriage books for their spouses to read and find them gathering dust on a table somewhere. This book will capture the interest of you and your husband. Gary Smalley is outstanding at identifying how to really become a godly husband or wife, and how to encourage your mate to as well. It has really made a difference in my marriage.

As a pre-marital counselor this book is required reading for all our betrothed couples. Having read this book a few years ago, I can testify to the effectiveness of living according to the principles Mr. Smalley has outlined so engagingly in it's pages. My marriage couldn't be better (Well I'm sure it always could, but it's better than it's ever been before!), since applying all the understanding of the do's and dont's in relating lovingly to my spouse. Run to get this one folks!!!

My wife and I have been married 15 years. This was our first marriage book and we have ingrained these concepts into our lives. It has been awesome! This book should be re-marketed and re-released because the concepts are timeless. If you are thinking about buying it - do it.
