The unusual title, The RIVER, the KETTLE, and the BIRD refers to an age-old Jewish saying that describes three successive levels of peace found in a happy marriage.
Based on traditional Jewish sources, this distinctive volume enlists the profound wisdom and insight of traditional Judaism to come to the aid of contemporary married life.
A sound structure cannot stand unless it rests on firm foundations, and the focus here is to examine the necessary foundations of a fulfilling relationship: the goal of marriage, the criteria for choosing a mate, understanding the different natures of male and female, controlling anger and criticism, fostering love, giving and gratitude.
The modern marriage, given today s complex societal state, finds itself under attack, and challenged from severe social and financial pressures; it can use all the support and fortification it can get. Deeply rooted in reality, not fantasy, this illuminating guide provides the essential tools and understanding all couples need to ensure a marriage that not only survives, but thrives.
