BOOKS FOR THOSE STRUGGLING IN THEIR MARRIAGE
Can a marriage really change in five days? According to marriage experts and therapists Terry Hargrave and Shawn Stoever, the answer is YES. Whether your marriage needs to be rescued from desperate trouble or simply could improve from good to great, change is possible. The authors share how almost every marital conflict comes from the same place: a pattern of emotional pain buried deep within every husband and wife. When couples recognize this cycle, then learn to replace it with more marriage-affirming patterns, the results are breathtaking. Tired, predictable arguments transform into life-giving interactions. Relationships are changed forever. The authors draw from broad counseling experiences, current mindfulness studies, and recent advances in brain research-along with case examples, practical exercises, and scriptural lessons-to refresh and heal even the most problematic marriages. A better marriage is possible. A lifetime of joy is just five days away.

Infidelity is common, occurring in over half of all marriages. And it is one of life's most painful experiences for everyone involved--the betrayed spouse, the children, the extended family members, and even the lover and wayward spouse. With all that sadness, why do people have affairs? And once trust is broken, how can a couple reconcile?
In Surviving an Affair, Drs. Harley and Chalmers describe the most common types of affairs, the reasons they begin and end, the best way to end them, and the best way to restore a marriage after an affair. But most importantly, they help readers survive the ordeal by providing them with step-by-step guidance that minimizes suffering and offers hope for rebuilding a loving and trusting marital relationship.
Written by respected pastor and marriage counselor Dave Carder, this revised and expanded version of Torn Asunder sorts through the factors that contribute to infidelity and then maps out a recovery process for both partners. With compassion and wisdom rooted in the Bible, Carder offers insight for the victims of adultery, the perpetrators, and those who seek to help hurting couples.
Along the way Carder also answers questions like:
Why did this happen?
We didn’t actually sleep together, so is it still an affair?
Can I trust my spouse again?
Should I reveal a secret affair?
What if my spouse doesn’t want me back?
What do we tell the kids?
