Habits for a Healthy Marriage: A Handbook for Catholic Couples
Richard P. Fitzgibbons, M.D.
Ignatius Press, 280 pages
Husbands and wives are imperfect beings. So no matter how great a marriage, there is always room for forming a more perfect union. Bad habits can creep into a relationship, and vigilance is required. Here Dr. Fitzgibbons takes some of the commonly seen marital issues such as selfishness, anger, pornography, and infidelity and suggests how they can be avoided — or healed. It’s a matter of working on the virtuous habits that make marriages strong, like the image of the love between Christ and His Church that the husband-wife relationship signifies. It’s a powerful resource for couples wishing to improve their union no matter their starting point.
