Extreme Marriage: Mastering the Ever-Changing, Life-Long Adventureby Terry Owens
Synopses & Reviews
Prepare For The Most Extreme Adventure of All
How's this for a challenge: With a teammate you've just met, skydive from a plane, kayak a river of Class IV rapids (no life jackets allowed), and then climb the sheer face of a canyon wall. Keep that up for thirty years or so with your teammate, and you get just a hint of life's most extreme adventure-marriage! From the adrenaline rush of the honeymoon through the obstacles of growing old together, success and enjoyment in marriage depend on your ability to learn new skills, take big risks, endure tough times, and embrace the extreme life-giving power of a lasting marriage."
"Extreme Marriage "looks at the ultimate commitment between a man and a woman through the exciting lens of extreme sports. Author Terry Owens explores outdoor challenges like skydiving, caving, high-altitude climbing, and more, linking their lessons to the challenges of married life. Forget the old saying about "marrying and settling down." This book is "the" high energy guide for the intense adventure of husband and wife.
