BIOGRAPHY

Since Finbarr M Corr came from Ireland to the US in 1960 as a missionary priest, he has led a very full life. His ministry included working with inner-city youth and the adults of Northern New Jersey as well as counseling engaged and married couples. From his early years in Paterson, NJ, he was not just tolerant of other cultures and religions, but built bridges of communication and trust among people so that together they could work together for a better world.

After 28 joy-filled years as a Catholic priest, Finbarr resigned the priesthood to marry Laurie Hutton. He continued his ministry as marriage and family therapist, professor and writer. An active Rotarian, he now fosters dialogue between Muslims, Jews and Christians as a step towards world peace and understanding.

Finbarr many readers enjoy his Irish wit, the insights into relationships that he offers, and the way in which he encourages all not to be inhibited by life's obstacles but to the cross the bridge to a more fulfilling life.

Living, Laughing and Loving Thru Marriage

Unfortunately, too many couples get married without the proper preparation. They mistakenly feel that the romantic love of courtship lasts forever. Many overlook, or deny seeing the faults in their prospective spouse and just go along and have the wedding because the date was set.

This according to Dr Corr is the primary reason why the divorce rate in the US has reached the 50% mark.

In this book, Dr Corr not only helps couples avoid the initial mistake of marrying the wrong person, but also gives guidelines to the average couple to help them grow in their marriage. Knowing yourself and spouse totally is the first step. Making the commitment and keeping it is relatively easy, if couples learn conflict-resolution skills, know how to meet each other’s needs and learn to accept the other spouse just as they are.

By sharing his insights and stories from his own marriage the author demonstrates that living in a committed relationship is not only hard work at times but can also be a lot of fun.
