About-

Healthy marriages don’t only last a long time, they create an environment that transforms each person into a whole human, capable of living their life as God intended. The five big issues that sabotage marriages are communication, division of responsibility, finances, in-laws, and sexual intimacy. To overcome these issues, couples have to get “beyond the bliss” of unrealistic expectations, to a reality where they are willing to work hard and thrive in a broken world. The key to cultivating a truly transformational marriage is a consistent, love-motivated engagement in four life disciplines: delaying gratification, assuming responsibility, being dedicated to the truth, and striving to stay balanced.



Here’s the good news: our marriages truly can become healthy, empowering both people to become more fully and responsibly human!

Endorsements & Reviews-

“Someone has said that marriage is your last, best chance for growing up. How true! So, if you want to really grow up and become the sort of person God desires you to be, then you need Gary and Patti’s refreshing book, Beyond the Bliss: Discovering Your Uniqueness in Marriage.

ARCHIBALD D. HART, PhD, Senior Professor of Psychology and Dean Emeritus

Graduate School of Psychology, Fuller Theological Seminary



“Marriages are not restored by shallow fixes. The stakes are very high because marriage is critical to a well-functioning society. For those who want more than merely proving that they’re right, Beyond the Bliss will be a treasure.”

BYRON D. KLAUS, Assemblies of God Theological Seminary
