What People Are Saying About
True Love That Lasts:


Unhappily Married

Two years ago my husband cheated on me. I was crushed and unforgiving. Regular counseling sessions were a time to complain about my husband. I read your book to prove you wrong! A single question a day can’t change what paid counselors couldn’t.

However, as I read the stories in the book, I could not only see myself—but even ourselves. I liked how the questions changed the involved couples. My husband agreed to read the book and start the questions. I have hope. I am smiling again. —AB

Happily Married

This single question a day is not just for young lovers. I’m happily married 25-plus years. I got benefits as soon as I asked the first question—and the benefits are just getting better and better. —JS


I can do better the second time—just a single question a day. —ES


Pope Francis Is Clear

Marriage cannot be improvised. A good marriage takes commitment and hard work. In their book, Jim and Carol Steffen outline a very simple recipe for a strong, healthy marriage. By asking one question a day, husbands and wives can work together to build a relationship that endures.

I invite couples of all ages and experience to take up Jim and Carol’s challenge of growing true love that lasts using the one question a day. —Most Reverend Frank J. Caggiano

I wish all my students read this book. Then I would not see so many come back divorced in a number of years. —MJS
