When we were children and made a mistake during play, we could call for a “do-over” to get a second chance to get it right. For those of us who are remarried, this is our chance to call that “do-over”. Divorce and remarriage are statistically on the rise in the United States. The rate of divorce increases with each remarriage that a person goes through. The odds are heavily stacked against the success of a remarriage. Unfortunately, the same can be said of Christian remarriages as well. So what can you do to ensure the success of your remarriage? We are a Christian couple that has been successfully remarried for ten years. We have personally weathered many storms during our marriage and, with God’s help, we have beat the odds. We want to let you in on the secrets of our success! Ranging from information on how we handle our relationship with each other and God, to tips on dealing with stress in your marriage, we will give you some tools to help make your “do-over” a success.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
We made many mistakes with our first marriages. We have applied those lessons to our remarriage and we have a successful marriage. When you look at the statistics of success for remarriage, we were doomed to fail from the start. But we didn’t. Why? This book is our answer to that question.
WHAT QUALIFIES OUR MARRIAGE AS A SUCCESS?
So now you want to know what our credentials are. Do we have a PhD in Psychology or a Doctorate in Marital Counseling? No. As a matter of fact, our formal education, which is accounting and engineering, have nothing to do with psychology, theology or any other “ologies”. We are just graduates from the school of hard knocks. More accurately, we are lifetime students of God’s school for the not perfect, yet forgiven. We have a love in our hearts for our Lord, Jesus Christ and a desire to help our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ to be successful in their marriages.
