Marriage Takes More Than Love is a book to be enjoyed by both husband and wife together. It's a plan set out by God. Marriage can work. It's about the "pain and pleasure, delights and demands...the mundane, the ecstatic, the commonplace, the romantic. Marriage is intimacy, distance, closeness, awayness. It is a quiet melody, and earthly novel, an obscure mystery, the greatest show on earth." Designed to be read together by couples, Jack and Carole Mayhall present their perspectives separately (in different chapters), yet supportively.

Review 1 for Marriage Takes More Than Love
Date:April 29, 2000
Thirteen years ago this book was part of premarital counseling for my husband and me. We have often credited it with helping us start off on a very strong foundation. We now use the revised version to counsel other couples, and find that they also give it high marks for being realistic, funny, relevant and readable. I would recommend it to every engaged couple, and any married couple wanting to perform some good marriage maintenance.
