Reviews about First Years of Forever, The (7):

For over twenty years now, THE FIRST YEARS OF FOREVER by Dr. Ed Wheat and Gloria Okes Perkins has been a staple in the arsenal of marriage building weapons. The introduction touches on the thing that poisons more marriages than, I believe, anything else, particularly in the early stages of marriage. Unrealistic Expectations.

The first couple of chapters focus on the various aspects of love. Here we learn how it is that we see faults after marriage that were totally invisible to us before. Chapters 3 & 4 focus on two cornerstones of marriage, faithfulness and forgiveness. Many today have no concept of the true meaning of forgiveness. They say they forgive, but then continue to bring it up. They tell their friends and families. They never truly forget it. Wheat will teach couples God's rules of forgiveness.

Next, Wheat and Perkins cover the art of communication. How to replace arguments with effective communication and the dangers of the dreaded "silent treatment". In the chapter on sexual fulfillment renders an excellent Biblical study of the subject. Chapter 7 covers a variety of warning signals to watch out for. Things like debt, ego trips, guilt trips, and jealousy.

Chapters 8 & 9 are a husband's handbook and wife's handbook respectively. This is some of the finest Biblically based assessments of marital roles and responsibilities you will find anywhere. After twenty years, this is still one of the best books you'll find on building a Christian marriage.

This is a nice book. Also recommended are the other books by Ed Wheat.

We read this book before marriage, and now a year later, we can say that by following what is written here, we are still BRILLIANTLY happy.

The single most important thing to being happily married is this: Learn to let Christ make you unselfish. Period. If you both are unselfish, you'll be happy, guaranteed. :) Read this book to find out more!

Used this in our pre-marital counseling 3.5 years ago and it spurred some great conversations. We still refer to it!

Ed Wheat is an awesome author regarding marriage. A great book.

After reading "Intended for Pleasure" by this same author, I began looking for more books by Ed. Wheat. I've just begun reading through this book with my husband and already, it has initiated great conversation and communication for us. The principles and concepts discussed in this book are both healthy and biblical. Thankful to have this as a resource in our first few months of marriage.

A younger friend is getting married so at my wife's advice I looked through our bookshelf to get engagement gift ideas. As soon as I saw this book the memories of how helpful it was to us 14 years ago. You cannot possibly go wrong. How cool is it that you can read it on kindle now?
