Mastering The Art Of Marriage: Staying Together When The World Pulls You Apart

Constantine Nasr

How do you get from "I do" to "happily ever after"?

It can be done, even in today's divorce-torn society. But marriage is no fairy tale⏤it takes unselfish love, total commitment, a realistic attitude, and a lot of hard work.

In a conversational style, with exercises and examples from movies and life, the Rev. Constantine Nasr, a 50-year veteran of both marriage and marital counseling, shows you how to master the art of marriage and create a lastingly joyful home and family.

  • "We recommend this much needed book as a basis for marriage counseling in our diocese. It is a welcome addition to the pastoral library on this fundamental human relationship" -- Archbishop Nathaniel Popp, Romanian Episcopate, Orthodox Church in America
  • "Mastering the Art of Marriage is a resource masterpiece. The book combines the wisdom of the Scripture and the Holy Fathers throughout the centuries and the guidance of modern scholarship and marriage counseling from our own time. It contains both research material to digest and practical exercises for couples to do together. It is invaluable for those who are engaged and preparing for marriage, for husbands and wives working to renew their love daily, and for pastors who are guiding their parishioners in the various stages of this sacred mystery." -- Biship Michael Dahulich, Diocese of New York and New Jersey, Orthodox Church in America
