Turn the source of your marital struggles into your greatest strength

Having a successful marriage is not about finding the perfect person. It's not even about always getting along. It's about loving the imperfect person you married in an unselfish manner.

Just as a great meal is made from many ingredients, a great marriage is a combination of different traits. If men and women were the same, life would turn out pretty bland. In this witty and insightful book, Rick Johnson shows you how to go beyond merely tolerating your spouse's differences to using them to add spice and passion to your unique relationship.


"Rick Johnson shows us how men and women are wonderfully different by design. His incredible understanding of how men think and how women think will give you much better insight into that person you married who sometimes seems like an alien."--Jim Burns, PhD, president of HomeWord; author of Creating an Intimate Marriage and Closer

"Conventional thinking wants us to believe that 'compatibility' is the golden key to a lasting marriage. But here Rick Johnson explains the real truth: it's our differences that make us interesting, engaged, and intimate."--Paul Coughlin, author of No More Christian Nice Guy and Married But Not Engaged
