Boy meets girl, they fall in love, get married and live as a couple – a story that is as old as humanity and one that we all know about and many of us are involved in.

This book tells that story, recognises some of the challenges and encourages us to work to keep that loving relationship alive and well.

Even though written centuries ago, it has powerful things to tell us as we try to live our lives today.
