 Our Description

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.

This item received 5 stars overall. A Wonderful Introduction to Relationships Between Spouses

"The human person is a mysterious unity of body, mind, and spirit," write Art and Laraine Bennettin in The Temperament God Gave Your Spouse, their second book on God-given temperament. Man is a mystery, comprised of innumerable layers, and to fully understand even one component of the human person is an enlightening and riveting experience, for God’s handprint is indisputably present.

The Bennetts offer a wonderful introduction to the effect our own temperaments, as well as the temperaments of others, have on our day-to-day relationships, especially relationships between spouses. Their deep-seated Catholic faith is an undercurrent of their discussion and explanation of the four classic temperaments-choleric, sanguine, melancholic, and phlegmatic.

The book’s simple outline makes it a crisp and clear read. The Bennetts define temperament, discuss the characteristics of each individual temperament, and explain how to communicate effec Full Review...
