Read full description of the books:
I found the book very insightful. I particularly liked the section where the authors discuss how good marriages battle bad things as well as its discussion on spirituality. The spirituality discussion made me realized that I may not speak the same language as my partner and that is ok. It made me want to learn more about it and prove about its importance within my marriage. The book did not apply to me in some of the topics but the overall message was very important and very well presented. As a lesbian reader battling minor issues in my marriage, I think it applies to all couples gay or straight.
I did not like the fact that a workbook has to be purchase separately in order to follow with the exercises. However, some pointers/questions/recommendations were given at the end of each chapter which is a start.
The book, I felt, did not cover things in much detail but did a good job explaining issues for an overall understanding or a general view of things. Definitely, a book that must be combined with other reads in order to achieve a full understanding (but then again can you ever read enough books to really understand marriage????).
The book reads as follows:
1. As good as it gets
2. Every marriage starts out good
3. Three good things that turn bad for good couples (when intimacy becomes an invasion, when babies become a burden, and when sex becomes a thing of the past)
4. One good thing every marriage can improve (attitude)
5. Six bad things that sneak up on good marriages (business, irritation, boredom, drift, debt, and pain)
6. Four bad things that jolt a good marriage to their core (addiction, infidelity, loss, infidelity)
7. How good marriages battle bad things (ownership, hope, empathy, forgiveness, commitment)
8. Why the soul of a good marriage so often aches (spirituality)
9. The good that comes from a good marriage (happiness, health, wealth)
