On this Focus on the Family broadcast, best-selling authors Bill and Pam Farrel explain how the first five years of marriage can be the best of times, or the worst of times, depending on how the couple approaches communication and conflict. With humor and personal examples, our guests discuss God's design for marriage, the differences between men and women, and how couples can navigate in-law relationships by truly "leaving and cleaving." Couples are advised to be "tough on me, but tender on you," and to deal immediately with conflicts as they arise. The Farrels also touch on addictions, such as videogames, which rob time from the relationship.
