The Problem With Marriage CounselingInstead of constantly rehashing the problems that youmarriage is suffering from, wouldnt you be better off: By focusing on the reasons that you fell in love withyour spouse in the first place, you will be taking amajor step in reinvigorating your relationship.
All relationships start with a bang. When two people fall in love, its aspontaneous, almost unconsciousexperience. You obviously love allof the good qualities your partnerpossesses, but you also find theiridiosyncrasies amusing. But every relationship has a cycle,and after a few years of marriage,this euphoric stage will end. Andat that point you may find yourselfasking The answer to this question is not a simple one.

This is not a quick solution but an incredible one! I rea This is absolutely the best marriage book I have ever read. I read this and later went through Mort's program while my husband and I were separated and I attribute us getting back together to this book and praying, and me admitting to myself I had things to change and I could only change myself.
We have been back together for almost a year and I am much closer to him and better equipped to handle issues with love. I would recommend this book to anyone! Mar 17, Rachel rated it it was amazing. All married people should read this book.
You know how everyone says marriage takes work, how vague is that. This guy breaks it down, marriage takes 5 non-essential phone call, 6 hugs, 3 yearly getaways, 1 date a week, etc.
I complete agree with the idea that when your in love the problems become minor details. I never liked Mars and Venus, thought it's principles were way off, I heard the author is now divorced, I'm not surprised, maybe too much time in the cave telling his wife to understand c All married people should read this book.
I never liked Mars and Venus, thought it's principles were way off, I heard the author is now divorced, I'm not surprised, maybe too much time in the cave telling his wife to understand cuz that's how men are. Apr 17, Jody Mahoney rated it it was ok. Though this book may have some valid tips for rekindling a marriage, I found it incredibly repetative and a little rediculous.
I didn't find it very well written and I definitely felt it was a brag book for the author. Aug 19, Jennifer rated it really liked it.
Practical stuff that can really make a difference. But why did he choose to put himself on the cover? Mar 04, Kirsti Call rated it really liked it. When I was working as a marriage therapist I read lots of books on this topic. This book, although somewhat simplistic and sappy at times, is an incredible resource for practical things you can do to improve your marraige.
Every couple should read this and begin the 14 week marraige fitness program. It can only increase your happiness. Sep 14, Carisa Crosbie rated it it was amazing. Whether they already have a great marriage and want to make it even better, or are struggling in their marriage but want to make it work. Feb 24, Laura rated it really liked it. Todd and I have decided to read this book together. It is about making your spouse your soul mate instead of just being compatable.
Very intersting concept in this book. May 15, A rated it really liked it. Among my top 4 favorite resources for marriage and marriage counseling!

Very inspirational. I suggest reading it with your spouse. Nov 05, Helen rated it it was amazing.
This is the most incredible marriage book I've ever read. It really gets at the heart of creating a wonderful relationship. I'll be reading it over and over. May 09, Jessica rated it it was amazing. This is an amazing book on marriage! View 1 comment. Jul 28, Christen rated it it was ok. I read this book for a discussion group. I suppose that these techniques would be good for a couple with older children who have family near them. Plus who have a good bit of extra income.
Also, I think his advice might work better for extroverts than introverts. I think my husband used to call me a few times a day when we were first married, and I I read this book for a discussion group. I think my husband used to call me a few times a day when we were first married, and I told him to stop bothering me so that I could get things done.
I don't follow the author's advice to always stop what I'm doing when my husband calls, and he prefers it that way. With respct to the author's idea that we should only consult our spouse and not others, it may be appropriate for a spouse to seek input and advice on business stuff generally, but not when your spouse is doing confidential technical stuff or technical stuff the other spouse is not educated in. So it just doesn't make sense in many contexts.
All that being said, there is some advice that merits approval as a general matter. Don't dress or act in ways to attract people to compete with your spouse in an intimate way. But I think those are self-evident.
Thankfully, this book super short, so it won't take you long to get through this dreck. View 2 comments. Oct 03, Douglas Lord rated it it was amazing.
