This was an excellent book. The authors write in a style similar to Wild at Heart- a complete mixture of short personal stories, stories of friends, Biblical references, and short but powerful points. The book flows easily and is engaging. I would absolutely reccommend this to any married couple- but especially any couple who is about to be married. I remember thinking to myself "why didn't anyone warn me how hard marriage is?" and now I know- marriage is hard. It is worth it. But God has to come first.I really hope that if you are reading this you give this book a chance. I go back and forth with the authors. I loved Wild at Heart, but thought Captivating was pretty off-target. This book was excellent and will be an excellent resource for my husband in counseling. ( )

It’s easy to begin something new excited and optimistic. And then the moment something less-than-perfect happens it might seem like the whole world is crashing down. John and Stasi Eldredge offer guidance to husband and wives who find themselves wondering what went wrong in their marriages. People aren’t perfect. Instead, the Eldredges point out that people are insecure about themselves, unreasonable in their expectations, and inapt when it comes to effective communication. But they tell us that marriage is used by God to transform us into better people. That means making sacrifices for someone else, even when you’re not feeling up to it. A union will always face difficulties, but the benefits of having each other through life will be worth the effort. Although this book is directed towards the married demographic, as a single I still found insightful lessons about the right and wrong ways to approach a new relationship.
