About this item

Love, honor, cherish...and understand

In their bestselling book, The Temperament God Gave You, authors Art and Laraine Bennett re-introduced the age-old concept of the four classic temperaments, and showed how to use them to understand yourself, get along with others, and grow closer to God.

Now they're back with more temperament wisdom, designed specially for couples and guaranteed to improve your marital communication, intimacy, and happiness: The Temperament God Gave Your Spouse.

In no other kind of human relationship is knowledge of the temperaments - the fundamental personality traits, hard-wired into us at birth, that affect the way we respond to the world around us - so critical, and so fruitful, as in a Christian marriage. For it's only through mutual understanding of our own patterns of reaction, and those of our spouse, that we can motivate, nurture, respect, and above all, love each other with the selfless patience to which Christ calls us in the sacrament.

In a fun-to-read style that incorporates practical psychology, real-life anecdotes, and decades of clinical experience, the Bennetts will show you:

  • The four kinds of spouses — which kind did you marry?
  • How temperament affects the way you and your spouse work, pray, argue, socialize, and show affection.
  • Tips for developing the communication skills that your temperament needs most, and for nurturing them in your spouse.
  • All the possible temperament combinations in marriage, and how to handle the unique challenges that yours creates.
  • Proven ways to figure out what really makes your spouse tick!

So often we wish we could make our spouses different (because they're not just like us); yet the Bennetts show that true marital contentment lies not in changing the way God made our loved ones, but in appreciating it — and helping them to perfect it. Read The Temperament God Gave Your Spouse and discover a new world of understanding and respect for the person you married.

Very helpful
This is a very insightful book if you are interested in the differences between person and person. It helps in understanding WHY people react differently from you - especially your spouse.

Insightful and easy to read
This book has given me so much insight into my husband and myself. I didn't appreciate how much our temperaments affected our relationship until I read this book. The authors' clear description of the temperaments and how the combinations interact is interesting, well-rounded, and rings true. I enjoy how they bring out the positive and negative aspects of each temperament, and give practical suggestions as to how to approach spouses of different temperaments. I've already recommended it to several people!

A Beautiful Truth for Marriage Formation
Art and Laraine Bennett have discovered a beautiful truth in their Temperaments works that is a useful, fun and interesting study for couples of all ages. This work is particularly helpful for those engaged in the ministry of marriage formation and enrichment. We have successfully used their teaching in our Church in the formation and development of couples preparing for marriage and married couples of all ages. Their writing style is engaging and humorous; insightful and practical. I highly recommend their Temperaments series for those involved in marriage ministry and those couples who wish to learn more about themselves, and develop a stronger Christian bond in the sacred life of marriage.

The Temperament God Gave your Spouse
I have now read The Temperament God Gave You and The Temperament God Gave Your Spouse. Both are excellent books! Not only is the information extremely valuable when understanding the most effective way to communicate with your spouse/others but these books are easy to follow. The Bennett's clearly explain the temperaments and give practical tools to incorporate the information into your lives. The books are filled with great little stories which make you smile/laugh (depending of course on your temperament.) These books are great gifts for an engaged couple, married couple or for grandparents, who, after 50 years, continue to love beyond measure. I highly recommend both Temperament books. Happy Reading... Happy Marriage!
