Overview

Dating and marriage is different than it was twenty years ago. In today’s society, more than 50% of all marriages fail for one reason or another. Just thinking about that makes “commitment” seem scary. It seems that when relationships are faced with challenges, people quit trying. Dating is more like marathon, trying to date as many people as possible, instead of taking time to get to know someone at a deeper level. For married couples, divorce is not biased. Whether married for thirty years or eight months, the outcome can be the same. The fact is that relationships, whether dating or married, are hard. Things do not always go perfectly, fighting does occur, and it takes a 100% commitment from both parties to make it a success. Often when people break off a relationship, they feel as though something is missing. The “spark” has gone, leaving one or both people feeling inadequate and unfulfilled. However, even though the odds are not very good, healthy, and long-lasting relationships are definitely possible and proven by many people. Look at Paul Newman and Joanne Woodard, Danny Devito and Rhea Perlman, or Nancy and Ronald Reagan. What secrets do they possess? The answer is that they all work hard at their relationship. They made a decision of choosing to love their mate rather than relying on the “warm and fuzzy” feelings, which everyone knows will fade. By making love a choice you are making a decision that even in the bad times, you stick it out. Think of it like choosing a car. You pick out the make, model, year, color, and features that you believe are best for you. After driving your car for a couple of months, you realize that perhaps you should have purchased a larger car, or that maybe the leather seats would have been better, or on hot sunny days, the sunroof would have been nice. However, it is now too late so you choose to keep your car and make it work. It is the same for marriage. Not everything will be perfect and there will be major obstacles to overcome but you have made your decision and now you choose to make it work. There are hundreds of things you can do to better your relationship. To help get you headed in the right direction, we have chosen 97 ways to build, strengthen, and enhance your relationship. Remember, little steps taken every day will add up to big successes.

About the Author

Having a dream to re-build decaying communities, and lives by making the world a better place for all of humanity to live in peace and harmony, the Rev. Christopher D. Handy strives to raise the conscience of people everywhere to make a difference. His meager beginnings in a small rural town in Monroe, Louisiana and his childhood in a housing project greatly contributed to his mission to enlighten, inform, educate, and motivate people to better themselves, their communities, and the world around them.
Handy has written many articles for various newspapers and magazines. He has organized marches to combat violence, injustices, and poverty, and while in school in Michigan he ministered on the 'bad' streets of Detroit and other cities. He continues to uphold justice and freedom by sharing his experiences with audiences everywhere. His first book “The Scars of Racism” has made a stunning and positive impact on people of all races.
In April 2011, Dr. Handy was appointed Presiding Bishop of the Louisiana Conference from Fellowship of Christ International; his appointment was accredited to his many years of dedicated service to God, service to humanity, and ministry. His district covers the entire state of Louisiana.
His educational background includes an Associate Degree in Business Administration from Louisiana Business College, a Bachelor’s Degree in Religious Education, a Bachelor’s Degree in Theology, a Master’s of Divinity Degree, and a Doctorate of Theology Degree from Andersonville Baptist Seminary in Camilla, Ga.
