Married and Still Loving It

The Joys and Challenges of the Second Half

Married and Still Loving It

Long marriages are a gift… but they aren’t always easy.

You know yourselves better. You’ve learned to cherish the small things. You’re past keeping up with the Joneses.

And yet, anxieties over grown children, worries about money and health, and feelings of disappointment can challenge even the best marriages.

In Married and Still Loving It, renowned relationship expert Gary Chapman and Harold Myra, longtime CEO of Christianity Today International, offer wise counsel and practical insight on making your marriage thrive during these years. Real couples share honestly about their joys and struggles, including Jerry and Dianna Jenkins, Ken and Joni Eareckson Tada, and John and Cindy Trent, who talk movingly about their marital journeys.

Married and Still Loving It feels like a gathering of kindred spirits. It will inspire and equip you to embrace the adventures yet ahead, hand in hand with the one you love.

Who knew marriage could get better with age? Gary Chapman and Harold Myra give us a high-def picture of the realities of marriage in the second half of life, but they also show the joy, hope, humor, and life that a mature relationship provides. A welcome message!

My bookshelves are filled with marriage advice, but not one is so specific and helpful for the second half of marriage as Married and Still Loving It. Marriages don’t survive on cruise control. They require intentionality and wisdom in every stage. This book is practical, easy-to-read, and will navigate you through real-life challenges to a marriage that is aging well.
Juli Slattery, president and cofounder, Authentic Intimacy
All too often the Old Testament tells us about smart, high-achieving people who did well for decades (Noah, Solomon, Joash, Hezekiah, Josiah), only to derail in their later years. Here in our own time, the alarming rise in silver-haired divorces troubles us all. If you want to buck that trend, this is the book you need. Read, learn, and find the keys to finishing strong.
Dean Merrill, publisher and award-winning author who’s been married fifty years
