Married for Real: Building a Loving, Powerful Life Together

They might appear to be living a fairy-tale life—he’s a superstar NFL running back and broadcaster; she sings in a successful pop/R&B group. But success on the outside doesn’t always equate to success on the inside—or happiness under the same roof.

Eddie & Tamara George Share Stories, Faith, to Help Others

Are we relationship experts? No. Do we have degrees in psychology or counseling? No again. But we believe we have something worth saying. We each bring a lifetime of relationship experience to this book and we’ve got 13 years of togetherness that have taught us what it takes to make a relationship work. Could we have benefited from a book like this? Absolutely! That’s one of the big reasons we wanted to do it. We know how important it is to hear from real people who’ve been through good and bad and come out the other end united—and smiling! For whatever reason, most books like this don't get "real." Anyone who knows us knows that we are definitely real.

That's not something we have to work at. It's just who we are. And so we've done our best to bring that to the table. You'll get to see us, warts and all. We’ll talk about real situations and real outcomes. This is life, not fairy tales. But we’re hoping you can learn from everything we’ve been through, that you can sort through the laughter and the tears and pick up some tips you can use to build your own great relationship. We’re going to present six very “doable rules:

Q: You both bring a background of  superstar careers to the table: Eddie, as a record-setting NFL running back, and Taj, as a singer in one of the top pop/R&B groups, SWV. What made you decide to write a marriage book together?

A: Well, first off, we are not suddenly experts on relationships! Do we have degrees in psychology or counseling? No again. But we believe we have something worth saying. We each bring a lifetime of relationship experience to this book and we’ve got 13 years of togetherness that have taught us what it takes to make a relationship work. Could we have benefited from a book like this? Absolutely! That’s one of the big reasons we wanted to do it. We know how important it is to hear from real people who’ve been through good and bad and come out the other end united—and smiling! This book grows out of the realities of the life we have shared, by the grace of God, since we found each other. Now, right up front we need to tell you that it wasn't always peaches and cream. In fact, if it had been, this might be a very dull book—and it wouldn’t be very helpful.
