Book Review

Real Marriage : The truth about sex, friendship, and life together 
By Mark & Grace Driscoll 
Thomas Nelson 2012

Reviewed by Diane Busch
This is not your typical marriage book and it is not for the faint of heart.

Part 1 includes five chapters on important marriage issues.  The over arching theme is that marriage is about friendship.  Mark and Grace each discuss common marital issues that need addressed.  Couples need to learn to fight fair and forgive liberally.

Part 2 includes five chapters on sex.  These chapters are explicit, where no issue or question is off-limits.

Part 3 is the final chapter, which challenges the reader with the concept of “reverse-engineering your life and marriage”.  The idea here is to anticipate life forward and live it backward.

This book could be for married couples who have been together only a short while or for those married many years who have some questions and issues to resolve.
