Suggests ways to maintain a God-centered marriage once children are born with commentary on effective communication techniques and finding balance amidst the chaos.

Zondervan House
In For Better or For Kids, Patrick and Ruth Schwenk encourage and equip couples to keep their love alive, even while raising kids in the house.

The transition from “married” to “married with children” can be tough. Before they know it, a once youthful and energetic married couple finds themselves in a minivan loaded with noisy kids and littered with Cheerios, crusty Sippy cups, banana peels, and missing library books. As much as you love your children and work hard to nurture and train them for the future, the challenges that come with parenthood can make the “for better or for worse” promise a hard one to honor.

For Better or For Kids will enable couples to:

  • Build a God-centered marriage instead of a Child-centered or Me-centered marriage
  • Avoid the dangers of spouse-neglect and self-neglect
  • Effectively communicate in the chaos
  • Explore ways to parent together as one team
  • Find balance in the busyness

For Better or For Kids is about remembering that even when you feel worn out, over-extended, and neglected, you promised to be a team. Marriage with kids may not always be what we expected, but it is good. We need to make a vow to love our spouse with kids in the house.

"The transition from “married” to “married with children” can be tough. If you find yourself in a minivan loaded with noisy kids, littered with Cheerios, crusty Sippy cups, banana peels, and missing library books . . . read on to find balance amidst the chaos."
