This book is for any couple at any stage in their marriage who is willing to learn and grow together and work toward a loving, lasting marriage that will stand the test of time.
I enjoyed the book and I shared quite a bit of the book with my spouse and we read chapters together and had an open dialogue and found new ways that we could invest and sow into our marriage. At the end of every chapter there are questions that couples can answer together to discover ways they can improve their marriage. Throughout the book are scripture references from the Bible to help couples invest that intimate time with one another and connecting as a unit to God. Investing that time in and with your spouse is so important, taking the time to tell each other how much you love and care for each other is key to a fulfilling marriage.
It is so easy to take each other for granted, this book will definitely spark conversation and give you biblical insight how to approach issues that may arise in your marriage. If your marriage is thriving, this book will help you improve it and make it better. Who knows, maybe you can be a mentor to a younger couple who may be having a few marital issues early in their relationship. This is an awesome resource and reference for marriage!
