Nurturing the most important part of your most important relationship

When it comes to a successful, satisfying marriage, it's not about how many workshops you've attended, how many counseling sessions you've experienced together, or which conflict resolution tools you've been taught. What it comes down to is emotions--understanding your own and your partner's, and then walking hand in hand through those inevitable situations where emotions run high.

In The Emotionally Healthy Marriage, Drs. David and Jan Stoop take you and your spouse through a five-step process of developing the emotional intelligence you need to stay strong and stay together. With personal inventories that help you discover where you are doing well and where you need improvement, as well as practical action steps you can take to implement what you've learned, this book is perfect for couples, counselors, and pastors.


"Great marriages are both art and science. Dave and Jan Stoop have integrated both in a highly effective system, using the latest neuroscience, to bring couples more intimacy and happiness."--John Townsend, PhD, New York Times bestselling author of Boundaries; founder of the Townsend Institute of Leadership and Counseling

"No pie-in-the-sky platitudes or superficial solutions, but wise counsel that can make an immediate difference in your marriage."--Gary J. Oliver, ThM, PhD, executive director of the Center for Healthy Relationships; professor of psychology and practical theology at John Brown University; coauthor of Mad About Us
