About the Authors James & Sarah Hess’ Keep Marriage Alive Success Story

James, Sarah and their four children live in Orlando, Florida where they publish their advice on their site and are active in many marriage forums. Below James has provided his personal testimony of how this method has helped him make his marriage divorce proof, healthy, and strong for the future:

James’ Bio:

James Hess, writer and developer of KeepMarriageAlive.com, is a freelance writer of the marriage relationship restoration topic. James employs many techniques and tips to inform his readers on how to successfully repair their ailing relationship and then make it stronger. The articles James writes for the KeepMarriageAlive.com site center around the topics of saving a marriage alone, restoring honor and trust between the estranged couple, and negotiation tactics based on clear understanding of each others desired outcomes. These methods may be the key to restoring the trust and love back into your marriage in crisis.

At the center of his writing on this topic are the core principles of striving to maintain ‘Honor Based Love’ and using the “rekindling of romantic passion” between the two marriage partners as a motivator to follow through with Honor Based Love techniques. First, he presents a look at the use of ‘Honor Based Love’ within the individual handling of one’s relationship with his or her spouse. This method ensures mutual fulfillment on a level that is beyond earning love and respect within the marriage relationship. This method circumvents the “give and take” principle in interpersonal relationships so that there is always a positive trust building momentum in every effort made. It is a pretext for positive marriage relationship growth and restoration.

So why focus on Honor over, psychological strategy, tricks, or “One Up” dominance methods of gaining control? Because, honor has no nasty backfire side effects. If you get a manipulative strategy even just a little wrong then you may have potentially created an inescapable backlash effect from your spouse. Really, honor pays off because it is a…

“Magic Bullet” that cuts right to the heart of your spouse or right to the heart of the matter at hand!

Respect is Great to Have! However, nothing puts an embattled relationship at ease more than not having expectations to perform to someone else’s standards in a relationship, which is part of earning respect from said significant other. When it comes to the feeling of relief that is needed in a relationship, you can FEEL the Difference between Honor given and respect earned!

When you are honored by your loved one you get the same feeling of joy and satisfaction that you get from earning respect, however when you mess up, as we all inevitably will do in close relationships, it is a real sense of security to know that the avenue of love, forgiveness, and acceptance are available to you through the sense of honor that your spouse has afforded you in the relationship!

The other central theme that under-girds the marriage restoration methods advocated by his writing are the use of the pursuit of “positive passion” building within the relationship. It is used as a pretext and motivation for making the marriage work again, when marriage partners seek to take active measures to save their marriage. Contact James at


Personal Message from James:

My marriage to my wonderful, caring wife has taught me to honor her above every other person in my life. I am happy to say that our marriage is steadily thriving instead of dying. We have faced many hardships and joys common to most modern American families. In these past 7 years, we have had many ups and downs. We have enjoyed financial independence and have suffered through financial disaster. Also, we have had many family joys and have suffered the tragedy of losing a child prematurely. Now we are learning the ups and downs of raising four children, all of whom are under the age of five.

Just a few months ago our marriage faced its biggest challenge ever. I spent all of my time working on a new business and that left my wife feeling lonely and abandoned. It got to the point where she told me that if things did not change she did not know how are marriage could survive. I needed to change my priorities and consider her needs of emotional support and attention. Needless to say, I got to work immediately in an effort to save my marriage. I searched for the right resources to help me regain her trust and the products that I discovered and implemented in my strategy were the “know how” that I used to rebuild my marriage. Now, our marriage is stronger than ever and not having time together is a thing of the past. These principles continue to be a solid rock that keeps our marriage strong, day by day.

I figure, if something as dark and sinister as the mafia can somewhat work cohesively based on a code of honor (not a code of ethics), then certainly it can do wonders to make a relatively good relationship within a marriage strong and doable! I know a little bit about this stuff because, believe it or not, I married into the extended Capone family when I married my wife! My mother in law’s family has the black sheep of Al Capone in her family! OK, I’m starting to ramble here… better I turn the focus to something more comforting!
