Are you happily married? Are you disappointed with your spouse? Are you thinking of giving up your marriage? Do you want to have a better understanding of your marriage? Do you want to improve your marriage?

Author Stefanus Mantik, Ph.D. shows readers how to bring the romance and passion back into their marriage using biblical principles in his informative new nonfiction, “Not Just a Fairy Tale” (published by WestBow Press).

Several years ago, Mantik and his wife, Priscilla, had gone through a period where their marriage seemed to be dying. However, by God’s grace, their marriage was restored. In “Not Just a Fairy Tale,” Mantik shares some biblical principles that have helped their marriage.

Based on God’s Word, readers will learn the original design of marriage and how to re-ignite romance and a love life that may have become stale. Married life may not always be a fairy tale, but Mantik believes that it’s possible to have a blessed marriage that is better than a fairy tale.

An excerpt from “Not Just a Fairy Tale”:

“A godly marriage does not mean your relationship will always be smooth. As long as we are living in this world, there will be conflicts, disagreements, temptations, disappointments, and problems. It is not a matter of avoiding these problems; it is a matter of overcoming them together with your spouse.”

Mantik credits a high divorce rate and general loss of faith in the institution of marriage with the problems facing couples today. “This book will give another light of hope for marriage life,” he writes.
