What's the Point?
Asking the Right Questions About Living Together and Marriage
Do you know somebody who doesn't see the point in marriage? What's the Point? is a small easy read for anyone asking questions about living together and marriage. It's aimed at a college-aged audience, and will help answer the questions related to cohabitation/marriage raised by nominally Christian or non-believing students.
Marriage doesn't have to be the death of love.
Maybe you feel marriage funnels you into a traditional norm--one that will suck everything you love right out of an otherwise healthy, happy relationship.
Maybe you enjoy your independence, and you're convinced you can be 100% serious and committed without an antiquated institution.
Isn't marriage obsolete anyhow? Isn't it just an expensive way to set your relationship up to fail? Moving in together is easy. But this book explores the side you might not hear: why marriage might be a good idea after all.
Look deeper--into the statistical, holistic offerings of marriage and how it can infuse your relationship with meaning and value.
Discover the real purpose of marriage and how your life together can thrive using wisdom that's been around for centuries.
"This is an excellent book. Shelby's message is appealing, accurate, and answers a lot of important questions that many who are dating never think to ask!"
