Which season of marriage are you in?
Marriages are in a perpetual state of transition, continually moving from one season to another—perhaps not annually, as in nature, but certainly and consistently. Sometimes we find ourselves in winter—distant, discouraged, and dissatisfied; other times we experience springtime—filled with hope, openness, and anticipation. Sometimes we bask in the warmth of summer—satisfied and comfortable, simply enjoying life together. In times of fall, negligence and uncertainty creep in, leaving us feeling unsettled and apprehensive.
The cycle repeats itself many times throughout the life of a marriage, just as the seasons in nature repeat themselves. Each season presents its own unique challenges, and each holds the potential for emotional health and happiness. This book will help you and your spouse identify which season your marriage is currently in, give you a common language with which to discuss your marriage, and provide practical strategies that will help you strengthen and enhance your relationship.
