Description - The Power of Commitment by Scott M. Stanley
Create a long--term relationship that works While many people desperately want to find lasting love, they often fear commitment and find themselves in "Maybe I Can" or half--committed relationships. These relationships often lead to cohabitation, which according to the latest controversial research by relationship expert, Scott Stanley, is a proven indicator for increased chances of divorce down the road. In this valuable new book, Stanley reveals that the secret ingredient in all successful relationships is understanding commitment. He defines commitment as not simply staying together but being together, not feeling constraint or loss, but rather appreciation for the opportunity to experience the unexpected joy and passion of long--term partnership. Stanley presents a program that offers five steps to handle the pressures of everyday life move through the pain of unfulfilled dreams and hopes, overcome attraction to others that might endanger a marriage, transform thinking from "me versus you" to "we" and "us," and capture the beauty and mystery of lifelong devotion, loyalty, teamwork, sacrifice, and build a lasting vision for the future.
The author ultimately reveals the paradox of commitment that more freedom and fulfillment is to be gained when you make the right choices and accept the limits of commitment. Throughout the book, Stanley focuses on the sanctity of everyday life and uses quotes, wisdom, and inspiration from the Bible to infuse the book with a spiritual element.
