Marriage Suggestions for #GiftReadyGuide 2013

I love talking about marriage. Maybe it’s because I’ve lived through my parents divorced horrors and my own that I want to do everything I can to help keep mine alive and strong. If I can help other couples along the way that’s even better.

I am not a marriage counselor, and I definitely don’t have all the answers. However, I have definitely been a mediator for many couples, and I’ve seen a drastic difference in their marriage as a result. It definitely has helped me also with my current marriage too.

My Top Marriage Suggestions

1.) Little Book of Great Dates: 52 Creative Ideas to Make Your Marriage Fun (Focus on the Family Books)ir?t=tidbitofexp 20&l=as2&o=1&a=B00CH7JU2I This is a cute little black book filled with ideas for 52 dates for the year. Every couple should take time out of their hectic lives to be together alone if at all possible.

2.) Happy Wives Club: One Woman’s Worldwide Search for the Secrets of a Great Marriageir?t=tidbitofexp 20&l=as2&o=1&a=1400205042 I’ve got to review parts of this book and I definitely feel it’s going to be a winner. I am already a huge fan of the Happy Wives Club. So I can’t imagine anything they may create being anything less than superb.

3.) Couples I Dare You  I highly recommend these books to shake up your marriage in a positive way. It will totally reshape your marriage in ways you never dreamed possible if you take to heart the suggestions in the books.

4.) Keep the Home Fires Burning   This post is filled with some ways to add some spark back into your marriage in more ways than one.

5.) Show Your Sexy Side  This year, if it’s not already a part of your daily life, strive to be more confident in your body image around your spouse. That will increase your sex life and even your emotional connection together ten fold.

There are a ton of other things that may be worth sharing, but those are the top list of suggestions I have for the year. Marriage is hard work, and doing everything we can to make it stronger is well worth the effort and time we put into it.

Don’t let 2014 be a year filled with regrets concerning your marriage. Let’s give your relationships the gift of love filled with a selfless love for your spouse.

What has been your best gift you’ve ever given for your marriage?

  1. This is a great idea! Because all marriages can use something to strengthen, enlighten, and/or maybe spice it up. 🙂
