It is incredibly important for the husband and wife to have an inseparable bond in an age of disintegrating families. Faith is increasingly important in a world where man attempts to define who God is, rather than God defining who man is.

According to the American Psychological Association, 40 to 50% of American marriages end in divorce.

Author, father and husband Paul W. Syltie believes he has the secrets to success in marriage and shares them in his new book, “Pathways to Joy in Marriage.”

Married for 45 years, Syltie is familiar with the hardships and challenges that come with marriage. With his new book, he hopes to pass along some of the wisdom gained by he and his wife over the course of their marriage and raising their six children.

The book, which began as a guide written for their adult children, gives advice on how to build permanent, lasting relationships without falling victim to the hardships and temptations that the world can offer. It covers many aspects of marriage from the points of view of both Syltie and his wife. The topics range from evaluating who the reader is as an individual, to what love really means. The book is meant to serve as a plan to successful marriages and lifelong joy.

Incorporating Biblical teaching, Syltie believes that Christian faith should be a cornerstone to every relationship.

“It is incredibly important for the husband and wife to have an inseparable bond in an age of disintegrating families,” says Syltie. “Faith is increasingly important in a world where man attempts to define who God is, rather than God defining who man is.”

According to Syltie, we must fix the problem of broken marriages now, before it is too late.

“The problems surrounding broken marriages and homes are threatening to destroy the very fabric and cohesiveness of our nation and the world,” says Syltie. “If they are not stopped, these problems will eventually plunge the world into chaos and suffering as we have never seen before.”
