In today’s culture, divorce has become an all-too-common word. Why? Because marriages are falling apart left and right. So if someone were to ask you the secret to saving a marriage, what would you say? Feeling “in love”? Having less conflict? Creating more passion?

Les and Leslie Parrott share tried and true skills for a lasting and loving marriage including 7 questions to ask before and after you marry. This husband-wife duo make quite the team!
