Divorce is not the biggest threat to marriage—discouragement is. You’ve probably heard the grim facts: Half of all marriages end in divorce. The divorce rate inside the church is the same as outside. Most marriages are just holding on. But what if these “facts” are actually myths? In The Good News about Marriage, bestselling author Shaunti Feldhahn presents groundbreaking research that reveals the shocking, incredibly inspiring truth:

  • The actual divorce rate has never gotten close to 50 percent
  • Those who attend church regularly have a significantly lower divorce rate than those who don’t
  • Most marriages are happy
  • Simple changes make a big difference in most marriage problems
  • Most remarriages succeed

For too long, our confidence in marriage has been undermined by persistent misunderstandings and imperfect data. This landmark audiobook will radically change how we think and talk about marriage—and what we can dare to hope from it.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Shaunti Feldhahn presents her work with the relaxed confidence of an experienced speaker. With perky pacing and true-believer enthusiasm, she’s a wonderful ambassador for the values behind her Christian perspective on marriage. With concise references to published research, she and her coauthor make the point that couples are much more likely to stay together when they go to the same church, pray together, and explicitly give their lives over to the plan God has for them. Yet her language and tone sound secular and will be appreciated by a diverse population. She effectively makes the point that you can create a more satisfying marriage when you get past your day-to-day frustrations and believe in something bigger than yourself—your commitment to another person.”


  • “Every Christian leader in America needs to read the groundbreaking, hope-filled research in this book. Then they need to recommend that everyone in their sphere of influence read it as well! This is one of the most important marriage books I’ve ever read, and it will change how all of us think and talk about marriage and divorce.”

    Lysa TerKeurst, bestselling author and president of Proverbs 31 Ministries

  • “Lamenting the demise of the family has almost become a cottage industry. There’s a lot of legitimate bad news out there, but Shaunti reminds readers that the situation might not be nearly as dire as we think—in fact, there are encouraging signs of hope. That’s a welcome message!”

    Jim Daly, president of Focus on the Family

  • “There are many bad stats out there about marriage, but Shaunti debunks those myths and provides clarity about marriage in general and how to strengthen your own marriage. The Good News about Marriage is well worth your time.”

    Ed Stetzer, PhD, president of LifeWay Research

  • “In the thirty-two years I have been deeply immersed in the world of marriage ministry, I have been demoralized at times by the negative statistics quoted. And now I am ecstatic as I read the truth in this incredible book. Thank you, Shaunti, for doing the hard work necessary to expose the myths and lies and for finally revealing the facts about marriage. This book and the undeniable research in it is a game changer!”

    Jimmy Evans, founder and CEO of MarriageToday, senior pastor of Trinity Fellowship

  • “This is an important book. Shaunti and Tally do an impressive job of showing that there is room for different viewpoints on divorce statistics and room for optimism about marriage. I believe that people make higher-risk choices partly because they have lost hope in marriage, and this book presents a basis for real hope.”

    Dr. Scott Stanley, coauthor of A Lasting Promise, research professor at the University of Denver
