Every marriage can use a little help. Communication skills are nice. Financial responsibility is nice. But the real key to a successful marriage is two people committed to developing their own characters and being supportive of their partners efforts to develop theirs.
“One of the most important ingredients for any marriage is the commitment by both parties to growth. This book enables couples to explore the true meaning of growth based on the development of character qualities and virtues. It is set out in a very clear and readable way with the addition of exercises to practice the relevant skills.” ~ Fiona McDonald, Marriage Educator, Manager of Education Services and Professional Development for Relationships Australia
