Maturing Marriage shows how a couple can enjoy God’s best in their marriage. This book includes many lessons which Duncan and Vasanti have learned from the Lord since their marriage in 1975. It contains a variety of discussion questions and exercises which will help both husband and wife grow in their walk with the Lord and with their spouse. It will bless an individual couple or group of couples who discuss their material together. The book could also be profitably used in daily devotions.
The teaching covers most aspects of marriage, including communication, what the Bible expects of both husband and wife, handling money and other topics.
This booklet has been written to help fulfil the Great Commission of making disciples of all nations. It would benefit any married couple who read and study it together, a mature couple who wish to disciple another couple, or a small group of married couples. It could also be used in small instalments by a couple in their daily devotions.
This course should not be rushed! Each couple should spend time discussing and learning from each other, and praying with each other as often as possible. Men should answer questions marked ‘Husband’ and the wife should answer questions marked ‘Wife’.
Whilst writing this course, we have drawn from a wide cross section of God’s church and are extremely grateful for the many insights we have received from different sources. We especially thank Stanley Mehta and Rod and Ruthie Gilbert for their wise comments on the manuscript. We take this opportunity of recommending the Gilberts’ book, ‘Marriage Masala’, which has been used to strengthen and encourage marriages in many nations. See www.marriagemasala.com
