Can a happy marriage really last a lifetime?
One-third of all married couples divorce before their ten-year anniversary. They struggle to overcome unmet expectations, unanticipated conflict, and disagreements about money, sex, children, and more. In this practical and hopeful book, licensed marriage and family therapist Laura Taggart helps young couples stay on the right side of this statistic. Making Love Last guides them to examine their true expectations for marriage, provides six action steps for improving the way they relate, and gives them a new picture of what it means to enjoy marriage for a lifetime. Each chapter includes discussion questions for couples or small groups as well as additional questions for personal reflection.
"A practical and wise guide on a crucial subject."--John Ortberg, senior pastor of Menlo Church; author of All the Places to Go
"Falling in love is easy! Yet, as many of us well know, staying happily married over a lifetime is another story. . . . If you once were madly in love but now find yourself drifting toward relational disappointment and disillusionment, take heart, because wonderful help begins just a few pages away."--from the foreword by Milan and Kay Yerkovich, authors of How We Love

Laura describes these seasons and conflicts and helps couples understand why they happen and how to hang in there with each other.
Great job Laura, sharing your insights of working with young couples for years and your compassion to give them hope for a bright future.
I appreciated the positive application of ideas and the thought provoking questions at the end of each chapter. I also appreciated the strong faith application and the reminder that Marriage is God's gift to us, and the reminder that by drawing closer to God we can draw closer with our spouse and have the marriage that God intended. This book is a wonderful resource for young married couples, and couples struggling to find their way back to each other.
(I received a complimentary digital copy of this book for review from Netgalley. I am not required to write positive reviews. The opinions I have expressed are my own.)
Making Love Last probes the underlying issues that cause marriages to suffer and fail. There are no pat answers here --- just real ones, that will help you grow as a person and as a couple. Laura gently explains how our differences and conflicts have the potential to deepen marriage for a lifetime. She gives real life solutions, with questions to explore individually, as a couple, or in a group.
This book will help your marriage whether you are newly married, or have been married a while. You’ll feel like you’re sitting with your own compassionate therapist, walking with you to strengthen your marriage.
