This book is great! It has useful and practical examples of problems we all have had in our marriage or very likely could have someday and how to improve how we are dealing with them. I loved all the Stories of other couples who were going through the various struggles and how they were able to apply the "secrets" to help them overcome their problem. Some of these examples were like looking into a mirror for me. I would recommend this book for anyone from the newlywed to those celebrating their golden anniversary.
I discovered this wonderful gem of a book a couple of weeks ago and have been absolutely enthralled with it. I suspect most of us "know" what we need to do to enhance our marriages to keep the passion of youth alive. However, with all that life seems to throw our way in terms of work, school events, Church activities, running our herds of children to every imaginable destination, and so forth...some of the energy and zip of marital bliss gets a bit lost in the mix. This book is a SIMPLE, MUST READ for everyone -- even if your marriage is Gibraltar-strong. Life was good for us a few weeks ago. Now life is GREAT, and getting better. It provides perspective on how we treat our dear spouses, how we walk together in the same direction through life, and how we can constantly create our happiest moments with our best friend -- our companion -- on a constant, ongoing basis. It is also a FUN book for sharing with each other, for discussing, and for putting into action.
