Published by WestBow Press
In 2009, Maxine Lawrence was given a challenge by her professor to research the subject of marriage—not because Maxine had been successfully married, but because she had experienced another failed marriage. In her quest, she discovered that the parent/child relationship was not the highest relationship, but instead it was marriage. Dr. Lawrence has compiled information to better understand marriage facts, before, during, and beyond, from God’s perspective. This book gives a biblical explanation of the origin and purpose of marriage, roles of both husband and wife, and characteristics required for permanent marriage, and how to identify unhealthy individuals such as pedophiles and other abusers.

When marriage breaks down and adultery, fornication, or desertion occur and are unrepented of, God has allowed a painful mercy called divorce, which allows for remarriage, but only to Christian believers. With remarriage comes courting/dating and blended families. This book will give you insights and practical tools that can guide you in making Christ-honoring choices.
