Most couples start married life with high expectations, filled with glowing hopes for living happily ever after. But as time goes on, the excitement cools, and little by little, the problems and responsibilities of life take their toll. If you sense that something is missing in your marriage, Strike the Original Match can help you rediscover the warmth and joy you thought were gone forever. This best-selling book has helped thousands of couples strengthen and rebuild their marriages. Strike the Original Match is not a cut and dried theory of marriage. Instead, this warm personal book helps you confront the difficult tasks all married couples face and learn biblical principles that can free you to make the best choices for your marriage. Chuck Swindoll offers down-to-earth wisdom as he looks at God's original blueprint for marriage and the home. You'll learn about the building blocks of a great marriage, how to keep the honeymoon from ending, ways to handle conflicts, and even some tips on wise money management. But more than that, he shows you how to bring out the best in each other, and how to create a home where love can grow deep and strong.
No matter how lukewarm your relationship has become, Strike the Original Match helps you rekindle the flame that brought you together -- and enjoy the warmth as it spreads through your home.
