Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Nominee, Inspirational Nonfiction, 2013
Pastor Mark Driscoll and his wife, Grace, talk about sex and marriage in down-to-earth terms, hitting issues other Christian books won't. While a wonderful wedding day is important, it's the last day of marriage that really counts. Will the last day of your marriage come prematurely through divorce? Will it be filled with regrets as you sit at the funeral of your spouse? Or, by God's grace, will the last day be a time to rejoice in the life you lived together? Pastor Mark Driscoll and his wife, Grace, want you to finish well on the last day. They share private and painful issues that damaged their own marriage - including his introduction to pornography in elementary school and her abuse as a teenager at the hands of a boyfriend - and how they overcame them to experience healing and joy with each other again. Together they tackle the tough issues, such as:

Should I confess my pre-marital sexual sin to my spouse?
Is it okay to have a "work husband/wife"
Can I say no to sex when I really do have a headache?
What does the Bible say about masturbation and oral sex?
From fun date night tips to the most tricky "can we do that?" sex questions, Mark and Grace share practical help and hope with people just like them - who entered marriage a complete mess - or who are planning to be married someday and want to avoid some sticky pitfalls.

Excelent Book if you can get past reader's voice

Very helpful to our marriage. Helps you open up with your spouse on tough topics that you don't want to hurt feelings on. Just wish the reader didn't sound like such a joke. Made funny inflections with his voice that kinda had my husband and I rolling our eyes. But still worth the credit.

Great Marriage Book!! Read, Don't Listen...

Would you consider the audio edition of Real Marriage to be better than the print version?

Absolutely not.

What other book might you compare Real Marriage to and why?

The Bible... everything Mark and Grace wrote about were based on Biblical principles.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

I believe Mark & Grace wrote a home-run of a book about marriage but the narrator, more or less, ruined the book... I made it through the fourth chapter before I had to stop and go buy the book itself. The narrator sounds like he was simply reading words. The female narrator was good. Every time this guy said the word "Bible", I wanted to cringe.

Any additional comments?

I just can't emphasize enough that you do not want to listen to this narrator for 8 hours. Buy the book instead!
