I enjoyed this book even though my husband didn't read it with, but I plan to bring up all the subjects in the book periodically with him. This is a great book for newly married peoples.
I first read this book when George and I were talking seriously about marriage. We read it together as a study after a year of marriage. The book is broken into chapters that are only a few pages with thought/discussion questions at the end. Perfect for a weekly study. It's what got us started on praying together every night. Something else I recommend for every married couple.
Filled with good advice for any marriage, this study style book is broken into short chapters. Each one deals with a different subject, money, sex, in-laws, etc. and includes discussion questions at the end. Some information is repetitive, but still relevant. The big themes are respect, love, making Christ the center of your marriage and letting go of selfish desires.
A lot of useful information about how to get through struggles and how to build on appreciating one's spouse. A lot of emphasis on communication. The author views marital conflict as something inevitable but has reassures that they could be placated through the right approach.
Great book to read this your husband or wife! It has little exercise at the end of each chapter.
There's nothing you couldn't get from this book that other, better books don't provide.
devotional type book with lots of good discussion ideas. i love this one.
Has some good tips, but it is definitely for the Christian couple.
Great Book for anyone who is recently married or thinking of getting married soon.
