    My thanks to NetGalley and Moody Publishers for an eARC copy of this book to read and review.The following is my interpretation of this book. The author did NOT say this, it is all from my brain and thoughts from what I read.Basically, if you and your spouse are not both Christians and are not both trying to work on a fabulous marriage, it isn't going to work.BUT, divorce isn't a viable option.Again, these are conclusions I drew from this book, it wasn't stated directly by the author.However, since the whole point of this book is to strengthen a marriage via a Christian bent, this is not going to be a useful book for most people. It makes no mention of when divorce really should be the only answer: unevenly yoked, abuse, repeated adultery that will never change.True story, my aunt found out her husband was cheating on her, she confronted him about it. His reply? "Yes, and when I come home from being with one of them, you will have dinner waiting on the table for me." He became an ex shortly after that. I mean, what do you do with that? When one person in the marriage loves their addiction/sickness/something else, more than you, where do you go from there? This book assumes you are both trying to work on the marriage, not that one person is trying and the other could give two darns.Which I guess is helpful, because if you are in a dying/dead relationship, this book will sincerely drive it home to you. And make you feel guilty for the divorce, ESPECIALLY if both of the parties involved are "Christian". I use the quotes, because I have heard horror stories where both parties claimed to be Christian and one was most certainly NOT, yet they beat the other one over the head with how good they were and how lousy the spouse was. This book isn't a bad one, it is well written, with plenty of real life examples and a decent suggested reading and notes section in the back. It is just for a very specific audience, so I'm not sure how helpful overall it is. Again, not a bad book, but one which I would be very hesitant to recommend unless I knew the person to whom I was recommending it VERY well and knew it would fit their situation. Three stars.

    Read through this book with my wife. It contains so many little things that you tend to overlook. It's filled with plenty of cheesiness at times, but the overall depth you can gain from it by opening up to your spouse is worth it.One of the few good marriage books I've read.

    I learned a few things about marriage with this book. I have been reading it for years (off and on). This is a nice book that will teach you what to do in different situtations on marriage.

    I thought it was just going to be another cheesy marriage book, but my wife and I read it together and loved it. It started a lot of needed conversation, but in a fun way.

    Of all the marriage books I've read since getting engaged and married, I have to say, this was one of the weakest. If you're looking for a good discussion starter for a group setting, I recommend this. But if you're looking to "go deep" into having and living a Christian marriage, this is not the book for you. Ed Young took the material straight from a sermon series that was obviously meant for a large, generic audience. 2 out of 5.

    I got this book from my sister.Actually it was a good book, and I got the one with the hardcover.I got it as a wedding present.The only thing that kept me from giving five stars was that it was written like a college textbook, so I was feeling like coming in a marriage class instead of reading a book :p

    Excellent book. It was a spiritual look at marriage. Marriage as god meant it to be. There is a lot of instruction and tips having a successful marriage, such as communicating, having fun together and keeping the fun and passion in your marriage. A good read for anyone engaged or already married. It is a good Christian-based reference.

    Not horrible... but not very culturally relevant. There were some "must do" principles contained within the book... but I never really felt like I could relate to the author. There are still four or five books on marriage that I would recommend above this one.

    This book is really for engaged couples or newlyweds - most of the advice is pretty basic, and will be something seasoned couples will have already been through.The author tells many stories in each chapter, which distract from the the point.

    While we all know i'm not the most religious I found this book had some really good ideas on the concept of really making your marriage work, would suggest it highly.

    The writer is very practical and wise. It's definitely things I hadn't fully thought of before. Really essential to read. I think its mostly for engaged or dating for marriage couples.

    This is the book that the Wive's Club will read a few chapters from. I like the topics and the way they relate in a biblical sense.
