Spring, summer, winter, fall. Marriages are perpetually in a state of transition, continually moving from one season to another—perhaps not annually, as in nature, but just as certainly and consistently. Sometimes we find ourselves in winter—discouraged, detached, and dissatisfied; other times, we experience springtime with its openness, hope, and anticipation. On other occasions, we bask in the warmth of summer—comfortable, relaxed, enjoying life. And then comes fall with its uncertainty, negligence, and apprehension. The cycle repeats itself many times throughout the life of a marriage, just as the seasons repeat themselves in nature.

The seasons of marriage come and go. Each one holds the potential for emotional health and happiness, and each one has its challenges. The purpose of this book is to describe these recurring seasons of marriage, help you and your spouse identify which season your marriage is in, and show you how to enhance your marriage in all four seasons.

Top Highlights

“Winter marriages are characterized by coldness, harshness,and bitterness.” (source)

“King David captured the vision for us in Psalm 34:3: ‘Glorify the Lord with me; let us exalt his name together.’ From a biblical perspective, the purpose of life is not to accomplish our own objectives. The purpose of life is to know God and to bring glory and honor to his name. For most people, marriage enhances the possibility of achieving this objective.” (source)

“Some of the emotions of winter are hurt, anger, and disappointment,often accompanied by loneliness and a sense of rejection. All the emotions of a couple caught in winter reveal the coldness,harshness, and bitterness that grip the marriage.” (source)

“The second step toward a winning attitude is identifying your spouse’s positive characteristics.” (source)

“Mary had taken a positive attitude,sought to make new friends, and looked for the good things in their new situation. Negative attitudes are like a bitter wind that contributes to the winter season of marriage.” (source)
