Are faulty beliefs damaging your marriage?
If you are experiencing conflict, anger, or hurt in your marriage, you don’t need positive thinking or an escape clause—you need to replace the lies you believe with God’s transforming truths for your relationship to become all that it was meant to be.
According to Dr. Chris Thurman, everyone enters marriage with misguided attitudes and expectations such as:
“My spouse is a bigger mess than me.”
“The purpose of marriage is to be happy.”
“My spouse should meet all my needs.”
This practical book dismantles the ten most common lies couples believe and helps you renew your mind with God’s truths for a more caring, close, and connected marriage.
“The Lies Couples Believe” by Dr. Chris Thurman, is a non-fiction literary work that provides the Author’s viewpoints on Marriage and the reasons why many are failing.
In this book, Dr. Thurman writes with a no-nonsense tone that does not sensationalize the entity of Marriage but forces the reader to face to face with the realities that daily struggle that is involved with two lives becoming one.
Dr. Thurman discloses, what are in his opinion, the cracks in Marriage, which are the lies that the couples believe. He explains that these “lies” are faulty beliefs and individual perspectives that disable the individual’s ability to see his or her faults, as they are busy seeing with such clarity, the character flaws of their spouse.
Further, the Author provides his understanding of Biblical truths and principles required for successful marriages. A very important truth being that clear communication and consideration of your spouse’s feelings and viewpoints is mandatory.
I think this book may be beneficial to all married couples whether they are Christians or not.
