Laugh Your Way To A Better Marriage (Paperback)Mark Gungor
With his unique humor and tell-it-like-it-is honesty, Mark Gungor helps couples find their marital bliss.
Based on Mark Gungor's wildly popular seminar, Laugh Your Way to a Better Marriage® builds on Gungor’s success with tens of thousands of couples who credit him with enriching, and even saving, their marriages. By using his unique blend of humor and tell-it-like-it-is honesty, he helps couples get along and have fun while doing it.
Through exploring a variety of subjects including the myth of a "soul mate," the different ways men and women think, the conflicting levels of libido, and the necessity to forgive, Mark proves that the key to marital bliss is not romance or destiny – it's work and skill.
Couples need to work hard at maintaining their relationship and to have the skills to pull it off. The longer spouses wait to learn these skills, the greater their chance of wanting to bail, yet Laugh Your Way to a Better Marriage® makes it easy for couples to take their relationship to the next level.

DESPITE its title, this book is not about the benefits of laughter in marriage, nor is it a collection of funny stories about marriage. This work is based on a seminar I offer, called “Laugh Your Way to a Better Marriage®,” which is a very serious effort to improve the married lives of those who attend it. The name refers to laughing simply because many of the points I share are, well, funny. In fact, the live seminar is more a standup comedy show than an episode of Dr. Phil, and yet tens of thousands of couples testify that the seminar has enriched, and even saved, their marriages. So while many of the points and stories herein may cause you to smile or laugh, what you will ultimately find is a serious attempt at providing helpful information that will empower you to succeed in married life.
I agree with David Viscott, who writes, “Relationships seldom die because they suddenly have no life left in them. They wither slowly, either because people do not understand how much or what kind of upkeep, time, work, love, and caring they require or because people are too lazy or afraid to try.”
People have a lot of strange ideas about love and marriage. Some think that if a marriage is meant to be, it will just be.
