Many thanks to Propeller Consulting, LLC for providing this prize for the giveaway. Choice of winners and opinions are 100% my own and NOT influenced by monetary compensation. I did receive a sample of the product in exchange for this review and post.
I have already been a fan of Dr. Gary Chapman for many years after reading his book The Five Love Languages: The Secret to Love that Lasts many moons ago after my Mom read it. My mom and I both learned many valuable lessons from reading this book and it made a nice impact on our relationship even though it still remained strained. However, Dr. Chapman’s book made enough of a dent in our relationship that we still had one at least.
So, when I was offered the chance to review The Marriage You’ve Always Wanted I jumped at it. Not necessarily because Del and I had anything to work out anymore, but because the topic of improving marriages/relationships has ALWAYS been appealing to me. I should have pursued another career in counseling, but I didn’t want to learn things the way college professors want to teach you.
From the Press:
THE MARRIAGE YOU’VE ALWAYS WANTED
Back to the book review, this book is just as good as his Five Love Languages book, if not better. I feel it’s full of information that many couples will find beneficial to them. I do believe his quote on the supreme purpose of marriage “is the union of two individuals at the deepest possible level and in all areas” is quite enlightening. Marriage is so much more than what we are led to believe it is by our society today. I loved how he taught his readers those many concepts that seem to be missing in our relationships.
This is a book that is great for any body who is married, wanting to get married, or even a, as he puts it, “veteran married couple.” It’s not ones of those marriage books that you’ll want to pass up on being able to read it. It’s a small book so it can be read in a very short period of time.
