  2. Even if you don’t get more than a couple of chapters into this book, it can do wonders for understanding your marriage—and making it work. This isn’t just a “learn to communicate better” book, this is a recognize the unique qualities that work together make your marriage work/not work, and so much more.

    After reading it myself (and my sister-in-law telling me that the minister they’re going through pre-marital counseling with has them reading it), I actually paid for it over the phone so that a friend could pick it up at their local (but out of state for me) Barnes and Noble and deliver it in person to a couple in crisis that night.
