Friends, Partners and Lovers: A Book Review

About The Book:

Great marriages don't just happen--they're made, intentionally, day by day. 

The number one cause of divorce isn't adultery or finances or disagreements. It's apathy--a lack of intentional emotional, physical, and mental investment in the relationship. It's forgetting that as a husband or wife you have three distinct roles: friend, partner, and lover.

With engaging stories and clear, simple language, pastor Kevin A. Thompson shows how to live out those roles. Using solid biblical principles, he helps you and your spouse grow your friendship, be supportive partners through the good times and the bad, and develop a healthy and satisfying sex life.

Whether you are starry-eyed in love or struggling to make it work, this book will show you how to keep your marriage healthy, strong, and fulfilling.

Every year he meets with nearly one hundred couples with a range of needs, from premarital counseling to navigating the most serious betrayals. A marriage and parenting conference speaker, he lives with his wife, Jenny, and their two children in Arkansas. He blogs at

My Review:

Anyone who has been married for any length of time knows that marriage has ups and it has downs. We all know how fun it can be to plan a wedding but how many of us really understand the work involved in keeping communication lines open, to make time for one another and continuing to be friends and lovers after years of jobs, moving, having kids and stress about finances and other things. The book is well-written, easy to read and would be a wonderful bridal shower or wedding gift. There is wisdom and tips for couples whether newlywed or married 40+ years! A great read!

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
