Generation NeXt Marriage by Tricia Goyer


Although my parents did not divorce and are still married, I find that there are things in their marriage that I do not want to repeat. The chapter, "Revisiting Role Models", was especially poignant to me. I remember as a child listening to my parents fight and that made me feel so insecure and scared. As a parent today, I try hard to not fight with my hubby in front of my children. I want them to see parents who love on each other with hugs, kisses, and kind words, instead of fighting and upheaval. My parents still loved each other, even when fighting, but as a child, I did not get that. Making sure my children know what a healthy marriage looks like is important, so that they will know what to look for in their own relationships. This book had several chapters that resonated with me, so I am sure that you will find information that you will find helpful in strengthening your marriage.


About this Book:

Do you still find yourself humming the love songs of the 80s and 90s?


Do you still believe that every marriage should be between soul mates?


But -- do you wonder how you can succeed at love and marriage when the generation you grew up in didn't?


Marriage isn't what it used to be-it can be better than ever.


If you are a Gen Xer, your marriage has challenges and potentials that no other generation has known. A Gen Xer herself, Tricia Goyer offers realistic help to achieve the God-honoring marriage you long for. She includes:


·Ways to protect your marriage despite the broken relationships modeled in your youth


·Stories, suggestions, and confessions from fellow Gen Xers facing the "What now?" question of real-life marriage


·Advice from the ultimate marriage survival guide: the Bible·Stats, quizzes, sidebars, and study questions related to this "relationally challenged" time in history


·Practical helps for negotiating kids, work, sex, money, and dirty laundry-sometimes all in the same evening


If you are part of a generation of adults who don't want to bow to their culture or live and love like their parents did -- this book is for you.
