Happily Ever After by Gary Chapman - Book Review
All great fairytales start with the line, "Once upon a time..." In fact, most great fairytales end with the handsome prince falling in love with the beautiful princess... I mean, who doesn't want their marriage to start out like a fairytale? We all do! But just like fairytale storybooks, marriages too, often come to an end and unfortunately for many marriages...it isn't happily ever after. In his book, Happily Ever After, Gary Chapman shows us how we can keep our marriages strong and thriving - when it is no longer the fairytale you dreamed. He demonstrates how to stop following the same old patterns that lead couples down a path of discontent.
Chapters dedicated to solving conflict and constructive negotiation show us how to fight 'the good fight', a chapter dedicated to marriage after children show us how to love one another fully when the dynamics of our marriage changes. Each chapter includes a section that encourage the reader how to put the principles into practice.
From the author of such great bestellers as the Five Love Languages series and The Seasons of Marriage, Gary Chapman will teach you how to stop arguing and start finding resolution & harmony in marriage so that, like the fairytale --you can find your happily ever after!
