My Review
Gary Chapman is a pretty well known author with his book the Five Love Languages. I had read the Love Languages before I married and agreed with his advice, while most of it was all things I had heard before. Anyway, I was curious to see what this book was all about. I discovered that this was another printing of the same book he wrote years ago. I liked how the book was set up. Each topic had a different subject about marriage and at the end a question/make it personal section. There were several things that I highlighted that I thought were good now that I have been married for a couple of years. The first chapter is good because it talks about the triangle God at the top and husband and wife on the two bottom points. The closer they both are to Christ, the closer they are to each other. I am a visual person so I like this picture of what marriage should be all about. A point that hit home with me was about the negative emotions or words used. While they might not be about each other, no one wants to live with a negative person. I really did enjoy this book and I like better than the Five Love Languages.
 I highly recommend this book to any married couple who seeks to to honor God with their marriage.

I have never read any of Gary Chapman's books but I believe this one would be the perfect one to start with. Marriages should be precious to a husband and wife, from they say I Do until the day they die.

I applaud any book that encourages people to strengthen and build their marriages through loving and appreciating each other more as time goes by.
