Long marriages are a gift… but they aren’t always easy
You know yourselves better. You’ve learned to cherish the small things. You’re past keeping up with the Joneses.
And yet, anxieties over grown children, worries about money and health, and feelings of disappointment can challenge even the best marriages.
In Married and Still Loving It, renowned relationship expert Gary Chapman and Harold Myra, longtime CEO of Christianity Today International, offer wise counsel and practical insight on making your marriage thrive during these years. Real couples share honestly about their joys and struggles, including Jerry and Dianna Jenkins and Ken and Joni Eareckson Tada, who talk movingly about their marital journeys.
Married and Still Loving It feels like a gathering of kindred spirits. It will inspire and equip you to embrace the adventures yet ahead, hand in hand with the one you love.

A North Pole Christmas interview by Gary Chapman and Harold Myra:
SANTA’S AMAZING MARRIAGE
–the jolly saint reveals his secrets
Recently, while writing our new book, Married, and Still Loving It, a brainstorm hit…or, you might say, sugar plums danced in our heads. We were interviewing long-married couples but thought of Saint Nick. “He’s the one with a really long marriage!”
What, we wondered, was going on with him and Mrs. Claus? We decided to find out, but North Pole communications can be crackly…and noisy from all those toy-making elves. But we were lucky—we caught Santa in a jolly mood in his home, beside Mrs. Claus sipping hot chocolate by a cozy fire.
“Ho, ho, ho!” he exclaimed. “It’s about time someone asked me about love and marriage.”
“Really? What do they usually ask about?”
“Whether being naughty or nice really counts.”
“Of course!” he boomed merrily.
We grinned. “So what can you tell us about love and marriage?”
Santa sipped his hot chocolate. “Maybe you won’t want to hear our old-fashioned ideas.”
“But that’s why we’re calling. You’ve been married a long, long time, and we want to know what makes you so merry.”
