Do you want a Happily Ever After?
First, this book is so long, has many parts and lots of chapters. Sure a person who is studious or meticulous might read this through from cover to cover, but for most couples, this book is best used as a reference on particular topics. The book covers several topics including conflict resolutions, the five love languages, financial advice, intimacy and respect/love. Overall, the book is great for a newly wed couples and offers good advice on marriage.
I really enjoyed Gary Chapmans book on the five long languages, but this book offers a lot more. Although I enjoyed this book, I would probably not read cover to cover again. This is a book I would use for reference. It is very overwhelming and I felt the chapters on finances could have been handled in a more in-depth matter. For someone who has read Dave Ramsey and believes in a debt-free life style, I didn’t feel like the book gave solid financial advice to the newly married couples.
I think this book has good intentions and I believe Gary sincerely wants married couples to love and respect one another. I would give this three stars.
I would like to thank Tyndale for allowing me to review this book. This is my opinion and I was not compensated for my review.
