“If you knew Gary and Betsy like I do, if you could see them together and feel the warmth, respect, and deep romantic love that they have for one another, you would snatch up this book and read it just to learn all you could from them. I recommend that you do so! They live what they write about, and that’s what makes their book so compelling.”

Written for married or engaged couples, this is a Biblical study not on what it takes to start a godly marriage, but what it takes to make it last.
Key thought to this book: When a marriage is focused on learning to glorify God together, rather than on one another, it has the potential to thrive, not merely survive.
Marriage is a profound and marvelous mystery established by God for his glory-and that is for our good. So many marital relationships never reach their greatest potential because they have the fatal limitation of being focused on one another. When our focus is solely on God, our marriages have the potential to thrive and not merely survive.
“Love That Lasts is thoroughly biblical, very practical, and quite convicting. The Ricuccis do not write from an ivory-tower mindset, but from the experience of working through to a successful marriage in their own lives. Every Christian couple should benefit from this book."
— Jerry Bridges Author, The Pursuit of Holiness
