“You can’t make love mean something it was never meant to be...”


Love and marriage are beautiful things. Having someone that you can spend your life with can be blissful and rewarding. On the other end, love can be a trap. In other words, you can have the good, but if you’re not careful, the ugly side of love can rear its head, causing you to have many issues.


This is why we wrote this book. While we appreciate all of the benefits of love, we have discovered that love and marriage is not for the weak, uncommitted, or immature. Throughout this book you will discover keys to help you avoid the love trap—in short, avoiding making love something that it was never meant to be.
