We have been married since 1991. That gives us tremendous experience as a couple and we've learned a lot from life experience.

However, we have also spent time immersed in the study of relationships and marriage. Here is a list of our material sources. We are continually learning more and adding to our reading. Some of what we have read has contradicted other things we have read. In all cases, we measure the theories and conclusions by the Bible.
