The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work – John Gottman

Get it, read it. I would advise each of you getting a copy, reading through it at the same pace and discussing things.

Yeah, if you don’t mind a Christian based book, “Saving Your Marriage before it Starts” by Les & Leslie Parrott is phenomenal.

LOL..Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus.  We read it together when we first met for fun and now we apply ourselves to it all the time, very helpful!

We read some marriage books on our honeymoon that I would recommend:

Emotional Infidelity: How to Affair-Proof Your Marriage and 10 Other Secrets to a Great Relationship by Gary Neuman

His Needs, Her Needs by Willard F. Harley

I Promise You: Preparing For a Marriage that Will Last a Lifetime by Willard F. Harley

I think reading marriage-help books together is a great way to spark conversation and get closer.  My husband read aloud to me every day on our honeymoon, and it was very romantic.  😉

I agree with the recommendation of John Gottman’s Seven Principles book — so helpful, and is a real-world, practical approach.
