My Thoughts:

I can't imagine anyone saying that they don't want to make their marriage better. I love that this book is for wherever you are in your marriage: 
People who are frustrated with whom they married and who wonder how they can find fulfillment in the midst of it; those who believe they made generally good choices, but whose marriages haven't lived up to all they hoped they might be; and those who simply desire to take their marriages to new levels by bolstering them with a spiritual purpose and dynamic that has been lacking up till now. (p.20)
Thomas encourages readers to think of God as their father-in-law since we are all His children. What an amazing idea! It definitely has changed the way I think about my husband since I started the book. He also reminds us that we are to be living for eternity, remembering that we will answer for OUR actions one day. Another huge shift in my thinking after reading that - I will stand before God and answer for how I treated my husband, not how he treated me.

There were so many other concepts in this book that have shifted my focus. I encourage you to read this for yourself to discover how you can transform your marriage into A Lifelong Love.
