When I read something brilliant, it makes me itch to write.

There are three truly great novels about long marriages that I have waited decades to engage with in writing. Which is not to say that I imagine myself at their level, but, as the old saying goes, a cat may look at a king.

More than a few marriage books fall short in their treatment or lack thereof of gender stereotyping, addiction, and abuse. Greco provides a much-needed correction.

Greco unpacks cultural stereotypes and expectations that society and faith communities so often place on men and women. At the same time, she acknowledges that sex-related variables often play into marriage dynamics—for better or for worse. She shares how she and Christopher learned to embrace their unique designs rather than suffering shame for failing to conform to pink or blue expectations.

Rather than downloading into simplistic gender roles, Greco encourages couples to navigate the mysterious waters as different genders and unique people. She urges readers to consider how gender expectations may be harming their marriages. For spouses navigating the thorny ground of addictions, Greco explains the source of disordered attachments and addictions that so often devastate marriages.

Vulnerably, she and Christopher share the ups and downs of their journey to freedom. To those who feel isolated, ashamed, and hopeless, they extend wise encouragement without sugar coating the process.

Change is possible as we lean into the One who lived and died and rose again. No matter how discouraging or hopeless our circumstances, no matter the condition of our relationship, Jesus is with us, ready to make all things new.
