Defending the Military Marriage is a small-group study designed to help a military couple defend their marriage with honor, guard it with vigilance, and preserve it with love.
Military couples face daunting challenges. Most couples will never know the stress of the demands brought on by protecting and defending a nation. It’s no wonder so many military marriages don’t survive.
But that can change by bringing the soldiering mentality home to the defense of your marriage and drawing strength from other couples. Together, learn how to:
- remain committed to each other in the face of a life of uncertainty,
- stay close during separations and deployment,
- understand each other’s needs upon homecoming,
- face financial challenges together, and
- fight temptations while apart.
