Through the bestselling ScreamFree Parenting, Hal Runkel showed thousands of parents how keeping their cool can revolutionize their family life. In his groundbreaking new book, ScreamFree Marriage, Runkel now shows couples how learning to stay calm, in the face of common marital conflicts, is the key to creating and enjoying a deep, lifelong connection.

Every committed couple strives to hold on to the marriage they envisioned when they first said “I do,” before the end of the honeymoon phase, before kids, mortgages, health crises, and all life’s inescapable issues. But the truth is this: conflict is unavoidable, it’s impossible for two people to see every single thing, face every issue, and experience every situation in exactly the same way. What results are couples “screaming” at each other, sometimes literally yelling out loud, sometimes shutting themselves down and shutting their partners out, and sometimes avoiding the issue altogether, none of which leads to the passionate, intimate connection we all crave.

In ScreamFree Marriage, Hal introduces some radical new concepts about marriage, teaching couples how to embrace this inevitable conflict as a profound vehicle for strengthening a marriage. Rather than just a source of pain and disagreement, these “Fires of Commitment,” as Hal describes them, can actually be the exact experience needed to grow couples into new levels of maturity and intimacy. By simply learning the ScreamFree formula of Calming Down, Growing Up, and Getting Closer, you too can cross through these fires and end up with a closer and more passionate marriage than ever before. Using accessible anecdotes and the disarming humor that readers have come to love, Runkel disproves prevailing marital wisdom, puts couples on a path to “intimate independence” and reveals a whole new, fresh approach to marriage.

    " I didn't like the writing style..."is this hard for you to understand? it's okay, stick with me!" but the book did have some good ideas on how to take control of your emotions and work with a spouse. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Triscia Smallman | 7/8/2013

    " Simple and superb. Everyone married should read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Ryan Johnson | 9/30/2012

    " Funny, modern and relevant. The author blends theory and practicality superbly. This book isn't preachy but does have a touch of Buddhist philosophy (probably not intended by the author but welcomed by this reader). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Nancy | 8/26/2012

    " I listened to this book on CD. It might be easier to get through it listening to it rather than reading it. I appreciated the different view than most marriage books use. I think the principles can be used for any close relationship not just spouse to spouse. "
