Publisher's Summary

Dr. Robin Smith advises couples on how to take the wedding vows that were made in earnest and in innocence to a level where they can be used to build a happy, healthy, satisfying, and long-lasting marriage. Lies at the Altar is for couples who are planning marriage, are newly married, or who have been married for years.

In Lies at the Altar: The Truth About Great Marriages, Dr. Robin Smith addresses the unspoken needs, unasked questions, outrageous expectations, and hidden agendas that often linger beneath the surface of the wedding vows and appear later to cause power struggles, suffering, and feelings of hopelessness in marriages.

Dr. Smith discusses why it's important to have one's "eyes wide open" in a marriage; how to write true vows to live by; and why it's never too late to rewrite your vows. She illustrates her advice with detailed stories from her own life, as well as from couples that she has counseled. And in her inspiring conclusion, she invites couples to light up their lives by acknowledging each other as individuals, each of whom lights a candle, and who lights a third candle which represents "us".

Calling "truth" the secret ingredient of great marriages, Dr. Smith teaches individuals and couples how to find the truth within themselves and their partners, whether they are heading to the altar, suffering in an unhappy marriage, divorced, or simply want to bring more satisfaction and intimacy into their relationship.

    "A Good Start"

    I highly recommend this book for those considering marriage or looking to heal a bad marriage. However, the abridged version that is available here contains only about 25% of the information in the full print version and what is not in the abridged version is very important information. Buy the full book.

    "A worthy listen..."

    The author narrates well, and shows personality while reading this quick listen. It covers as the title might lead you to believe, lies at the alter. Though not intentional lies, but down the road they turn into lies. She covers various areas that cause problems in a marriage or commitment to another. Leans more towards mending a relationship than how to have a good wedding. Overall, a good listen for either male or female.

    "A MUST READ."

    Great book, learning how to deal with relationships, marriages, commitment, love, respect, etc…. Author narrates well, she covers every step of a relationship and ups and downs of a marriage. Also, learning how to reconnect with your partner and to think of as “WE” not just as an individual. I actually thought the book was about lies, but is more about the things that are left unsaid and it can damage any relationship down the road. Loved it!

    "Very angry, negative"
    Any additional comments?

    I made it through the first third of the book and did not want to finish. This never happens to me, but I sought out this book because of it's subtitle- the truth about great marriages. The book seems to have a very negative approach, at least at the beginning, and only made me more angry listening to it instead of learning how to improve. Not at all where my goals were.

    "From a male's perspective...."

    Going in, I really thought this was a book for girls to read/listen to but as it turned out, males could certainly pick up a few helpful tips toward a happy marriage from this as well.
