“Men’s and women’s specific qualities, in different domains, allow them to complete each other magnificently in conjugal life when each has a basic knowledge of the way the other works and a mutual respect for the other.”
—Fr. Patrick Troadec

There is much to be learned about the person with whom you are married. Not only who they are but also how they think and act—both are key to establishing a lasting, balanced relationship founded on Christ. This book provides an in-depth explanation of both men’s and women’s mental processes so that through mutual understanding a harmonious and fruitful ever-maturing friendship might be formed between spouses. A must-read for all married and future couples.

Topics Include:
  • Creating a United, Lasting, and Fruitful Marriage
  • Collaboration Between Spouses
  • Ensuring a Lasting Love in One’s Relationship
  • Welcoming Children
  • Praise of Fertility
  • Procreative Love
  • Guardians of Peace in the Home
  • Recourse to God’s Grace
  • The Daily Battle
  And much more...

“When each fulfills his respective role as well as possible and when both truly work together, the result is a beautiful conjugal harmony that leads to the proper development of the children on both the natural and the supernatural levels. The educational work within the family can never be truly effective without this collaboration.”
—Fr. Patrick Troadec

Reinvigorated My Marriage

This book is great. As a new catholic, there were many things about the roles of men and women which would cause disharmony between my wife and I. After reading this, and especially the section showing how men and women differ in their thoughts and actions, we now know that those things which annoyed each other at first were actually just natural differences between men and women. Now we can see the natural roles which follow from these differences. This knowledge, combined with the Sacrament of Confession has really helped us. A marriage which had arguments weekly for 7 years has now been full of peace, love and new life for the past month since finishing this book together. The writing is also simple to read, and great for someone with english as their second language.
