Download and read online Not Yet Married in PDF and EPUB Life Is Never Mainly About Love and Marriage. So Learn to Live and Date for More. Many of you grew up assuming that marriage would meet all of your needs and unlock God’s purposes for you. But God has far more planned for you than your future marriage. Not Yet Married is not about waiting quietly in the corner of the world for God to bring you “the one,” but about inspiring you to live and date for more now. If you follow Jesus, the search for a spouse is no longer a pursuit of the perfect person, but a pursuit of more of God. He will likely write a love story for you different than the one you would write for yourself, but that’s because he loves you and knows how to write a better story. This book was written to help you find real hope, happiness, and purpose in your not-yet-married life.

Download and read online Single Dating Engaged Married in PDF and EPUB Navigating the Four Critical Seasons of Relationship The vast majority of young people will still pass through the key phases of singleness, dating, engagement and marriage in their twenties. Yet they are delaying marriage longer than any generation in human history. Why? For the first time in history, the average age for an American woman having her first child, 26, is younger than the average age of her first marriage, 27. More children than ever are growing up in fatherless homes, despite the overwhelming evidence that in every measurable way this is bad for the child. The Center for Disease Control also recently reported a dramatic rise in sexually transmitted disease nationwide. In Rhode Island alone, since the onset of online dating, reported cases of Syphilis has risen 79%, and HIV has increased by 33%. Though many young people can avoid early pregnancy and STDs, most cannot dodge the depression and feelings of isolation that characterize this modern generation. Studies show a dramatic rise in self-reported loneliness among the young. All of our technological connectivity has not made us feel more connected. In many ways, the very screens that are meant to link us to others have become shields blocking us from the deep intimacy we crave. Many have discovered that where there is a lack of intimacy,addiction often rises to take its place. How can a young person navigate such troubled waters? Is there hope out there? Like a sailor on turbulent seas, we need to look up and see the North Star: the fixed points in the sky whereby we might navigate the objective realities in life. We need the skill-set to know how to journey through life and how to select the right people to journey alongside. In this book we will chart a course through the four relational phases that the vast majority of human beings on the planet will pass through in their twenties: singleness, dating, engaged and married. In each of these phases, we will look at what eternal purposes should be pursued in each stage, and how to pursue them. SINGLENESS: DEVOTION DATING: EVALUATION ENGAGED: UNIFICATION MARRIED: MISSION Our desires for intimacy are powerful. This power can be constructive or destructive. Our satisfaction and our safety will be ensured if we can aim these powerful desires toward divine purposes.

Download and read online Wedding Toasts I ll Never Give in PDF and EPUB Inspired by her viral New York Times “Modern Love” essay “The Wedding Toast I’ll Never Give”, Ada Calhoun’s memoir is a witty, poignant exploration of the beautiful complexity of marriage. We hear plenty about whether or not to get married, but much less about what it takes to stay married. Clichés around marriage—eternal bliss, domestic harmony, soul mates—leave out the real stuff. After marriage you may still want to sleep with other people. Sometimes your partner will bore the hell out of you. And when stuck paying for your spouse’s mistakes, you might miss being single. In Wedding Toasts I’ll Never Give, Ada Calhoun presents an unflinching but also loving portrait of her own marriage, opening a long-overdue conversation about the institution as it truly is: not the happy ending of a love story or a relic doomed by high divorce rates, but the beginning of a challenging new chapter of which “the first twenty years are the hardest.” Calhoun’s funny, poignant personal essays explore the bedrooms of modern coupledom for a nuanced discussion of infidelity, existential anxiety, and the many other obstacles to staying together. Both realistic and openhearted, Wedding Toasts I’ll Never Give offers a refreshing new way to think about marriage as a brave, tough, creative decision to stay with another person for the rest of your life. “What a burden,” Calhoun calls marriage, “and what a gift.”

Leo has loved Bryony since he was a young boy--and she the older, beautiful, coolly self-possessed girl from a neighboring estate. He only became more fascinated by her when, defying her genteel upbringing, she attended medical school and became a surgeon.

But now, with her father ailing, they must brave a perilous road through some of the most inhospitable terrains on earth. When a rebellion against the British Empire erupts in their path, they would risk their lives to ensure a safe passage home. But do these reunited lovers dare risk their hearts and fall in love again, when so much has gone wrong before?

Download and read online Just How Married Do You Want to Be in PDF and EPUB Men Are from Strip Clubs. Women Are from Seminary. Jim and Sarah Sumner met at church. Jim, a new Christian and former male stripper, impressed Sarah with his desire to grow in his faith and to see people meet the God he had met. Sarah, a Ph.D. in theology and a division leader in evangelism, impressed Jim with her depth of knowledge and heart for discipleship. Their mutual admiration slowly turned to love, and the two were married. Just how married they're becoming is the story of this book. Sarah and Jim lay out a fresh approach to how husbands and wives relate biblically in marriage. In a culture where gender roles are often misunderstood, the Bible's teaching on the marital relationship is made more complex than it need be. What does it mean when we read that "the husband is the head of the wife"? How should the husband's headship play out when married couples deal with such issues as conflict and decision-making? Read this book and discover a fresh vision for how couples can become "one flesh" in a marriage that honors God.

Download and read online Why Married Couples Don t Have Sex At Least Not with Each Other in PDF and EPUB Do women really want less sex than men? If you’re reading this book, chances are that you have questions or concerns about your sexual relationship with a significant other. You may be worried that you’re not having enough sex, or perhaps that you’re wanting too much. You may be concerned about the fact that you no longer seem to desire sex the way you once did, or that your spouse doesn’t seem to desire you. You may be running out of excuses to put off a partner with a much bigger appetite for sex, wondering why you find yourself constantly relying on excuses and questioning why there’s such a disconnect between the two of you. Psychologist Sara Dimerman has been counselling couples for twenty-five years, and of all the reasons that they seek her help, problems in their sexual relationship ranks high on the list. When digging beyond the clichéd excuses, Sara discovers the underlying reasons that each has for wanting more or less intimacy with the other; and the impact that their current state of union is having on their sex life. In her new book, Sara Dimerman explores patterns that crop up between couples and the problems that may be creating obstacles on their path towards bringing sex, sexual desire, and intimacy back to life and then helps them figure out what they’re going to do about it. Sara also reveals why so many married men and women are willing to risk losing everything they’ve built together over the years by engaging in sexual relationships with others, with or without the consent of their partners.
