A heartwarming and revealing look at the wisdom drawn from successful marriages and the secrets to making love last, not from Ph.D.s or therapists but from more than 200 real couples who have walked the walk to more than forty years of marriage.
Jaded by his parents' divorce, Mathew Boggs was a young man who'd lost all belief in lifelong love. After observing his grandparents who were madly in love after sixty-three years of marriage, Mat talked his best friend Jason into joining him on a cross-country search for America's greatest marriages. The two bumbling bachelors jumped in an RV and embarked on "Project Everlasting," a 12,000-mile cross-country adventure to discover what it takes to make love last.
Each chapter of Project Everlasting is dedicated to one of the pressing questions the bachelors asked the couples, such as:
—"How do you know you've found The One?"
—"What's missing from today's marriages?"
—"How do you keep the romance alive?"
—"What's the most important ingredient for a solid marriage?"
As the traveled the country, meeting happy couples from all walks of life, Mat and Jason began to understand why their own relationships hadn't worked out quite as planned. They also realized that what they were learning from their wise new friends could change everything for them and—through Project Everlasting—show their generation and generations to come how to build a marriage to last.

Married for 17 years as of last month we are going through some major growing pains and challenges, I was 19 he 21. I needed something to restore my faith in the possibility of everlasting love and marriage so decided to purchase my first ebook. What heart warming stories, many of which had me in tears of people who remained loyal to one another and the marriage for all these years? It isn't easy and there may be times when you can't stand him or vice versa but I think that is temporary. The problem is people don't stay committed long enough to work through the rough patches. I can only hope my own husband loves me again like he used to, he promised me forever dammit, that's what I expect :) Great, inspiring book...excellent job guys,
