In "I Promise," America's foremost marriage expert comes to a startling new conclusion: Great marriages are built on a foundation of trust, not behavioral skills. So, it's not enough to learn your partner's love language, become proficient in conflict resolution, learn to control your emotions and even become an expert in the bedroom. If your spouse does not feel safe enough to open up his or her heart without fear of being judged, criticized, blamed or rejected, nothing you do will be effective. It's only when couples feel emotionally "safe" that they can truly become one, as God intended. Based on 10 years of research, Dr. Gary Smalley shares five heartfelt promises you can make to your mate that are guaranteed to build trust and help your spouse become the true soulmate, lover and friend you desire.

From AudioFile:

The authors impeccable grasp of what makes a marriage work is better than ever in his latest relationship guide. Nathan Larkin sounds unusually calm and centered as he spells out Smalleys advice: Ironclad commitment to each other--no matter what happens--is an absolute necessity to promote mutual trust and authentic growth. The little things are also important: how we manage our appearance, habits, and career; how we listen; and how we show appreciation. Smalleys lists of commitments and recommendations are illustrated with cogent stories from his own marriage and those of his clients. They show that security is best achieved when we serve our spouses daily and anchor ourselves to Gods love and authority.
