12 Top Posts About Marriage


At least once a week I hear about a marriage in trouble. We have a large church, so some of that is to be expected, but it seems there are more stresses on marriage today than ever before in my life.  Would you agree?

At the same time, this blog is growing in numbers of readers every month and I’m consistently hearing online about marriages that are in trouble. Several months ago, I started addressing marriages each Monday. Since I started this blog, I’ve written extensively about the subject; practically placing my entire marriage conference teaching on this blog.

Today, I want to share my top dozen (12) posts about marriage.  If you want to work on your marriage, perhaps spending some time reading these posts will help. Read over the titles and decide which of these you need to read/re-read for your marriage. Feel free to share ones you think would be helpful for other couples. (You may also want to read the “related posts” shown below this one.)

Also, I have learned from the comments, that when you share your story it encourages others.  Feel free to do so here.

  1. I second "Love & Respect" this is the only book I've read that actually addresses "both sides" MOST "fix your marriage" type books appeal to men to understand women, very few also address how women need to accommodate a man's needs. Our culture want to make men into women, and I'm afraid most Christian books go down that road as well.

  2. Also, not a book, but the three sessions in Men's Fraternity, "The Quest for Authentic Manhood" entitled "A Man and His Wife" (Parts 1 & 2) and "25 Ways to Be a Servant Leader" have been helpful to me. Especially combined with these books.

  3. Gary Thomas' book, 'Sacred Marriage' was very comforting. Discovering the Mind of a Woman by Ken Nair was the book that forced me to acknowledge that I was not going to be able to fix my marriage by myself and that if anything was going to change, I would need to demand it. Hard book for guys, but puts the responsibility where it belongs and shows what it will take to do it.

    • @Tricia, "Sacred Marriage" is an excellent book. I've read it probably 3 times in the last year as I"m working through issues with my wife… would like her to read it, but don't think she's open. Also the companion devotional is excellent as well. It's supposed to be read as a once a week devotional for a year, but I've just read it straight through like a regular book, probably 3 times as well, and it is very good.

  4. "Disciplines of a Godly Man" by R. Kent Hughes. I believe if the husband knows who he is and who God has laid out for him to be, seeks God's direction in everything (marriage related or not…everything) that marriage will be an experience like no other.

    Another is "Marriage Covenant – The Biblical Secret for a Love that Lasts" by Derek Prince.

    Thank you, Ron, for your ministry.
