Reverse engineering: Your life and marriage

The final chapter of the Driscolls' book on marriage is entitled Reverse Engineering.  The idea of reverse engineering is 'to anticipate life forward and live it backward.'

Some of their practical tips involves going to bed together, having a weekly date night, getting away for a romantic night four times a year and praying together each day.

'The most important day of your marriage is the last day ... Will the last day of your marriage come prematurely through divorce?  Will the last day of your marriage be filled with regrets as you stand over the coffin of your spouse?  Or by God's grace will the last day be a day to rejoice in a life lived together and remember the gift your spouse was to you while on earth?'
