101 Tips for a Happier Marriage offers Catholic couples concise, practical, and at times humorous suggestions for creating and sustaining a more joyful, peace-filled marriage that is steeped in the beauty and mystery of Catholic faith.
"As someone who, through the grace of God and a lot of hard work, was able to rebuild a marriage, I can say that this book offers so much to couples who may be struggling. First and foremost, it helps husbands and wives understand the true definition of marriage as God ordained it. Second, it is filled with practical and very doable action items for everyday people with busy lives. If couples truly make an effort to apply the advice in 101 Tips for a Happier Marriage, their relationship--not only with their spouse but also with the Lord--will be the best it can be." --Teresa Tomeo, Host of Catholic Connection "How can something as wide and complex as marital conflict be addressed by a book so slender and simple? Our culture stresses the wedding day and forgets the married life--until the wheels start coming off and then it's often too late. But there is hope. This wise and practical book is not only for couples who want to make their good marriages great, but even better for couples who, for their own unique and pain-drenched reasons, find themselves tempted to give up on the dream. To Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse and Betsy Kerekes go the laurels for this much-needed manual for strengthening men and women for what G.K. Chesterton called the 'duel to the death which no man of honor should decline.'" --Patrick Coffin, Host of Catholic Answers Live "This is the best assimilation of received and gathered wisdom on marriage I've seen. In short and pithy darts of advice, the authors deliver universal truths in sharp and witty zingers that are at times brilliant revelations and bracing reminders of what we 'can't not know, ' but somehow keep forgetting. This book is for every couple preparing for the sacrament and every couple holding up the institution through thick and thin. Bold and practical, this gem is a gift and a guide for everyone in all stages of life. I love it!" --Sheila Liaugminas, Host of A Closer Look "101 Tips for a Happier Marriage is full of practical, helpful ideas to keep a marriage alive and well. It should be handed out to every couple going through a pre-Cana program. If every couple followed its advice, there would be many more happy and successful marriages!" --Patrice Fagnant-MacArthur, Author of The Catholic Baby Name Book "At last! A good and reliable guide to what it takes to make a marriage work and make it last a lifetime. ...This little gem of a book should be read by every married couple and by those planning to get married." --Joseph Pearce, Author of The Quest for Shakespeare "The Morse-Kerekes approach to making marriage last is a solid, frank presentation to the major issues that come up or can come up in any marriage. In addition, in the anti-marriage climate of our time, the authors face frankly the arguments given for deviant or alternative ways and directly point out why such views are erroneous. This is a very fundamental approach by writers who know in depth what is at issue for families, Church, and society." --James V. Schall, S. J., Professor of Political Philosophy, Georgetown University.
