Product Description

Marriage doesn't make you happy. You make your marriage happy. But how?

What do you want for your marriage? Most couples would answer: happiness together. Yet happiness is in short supply for many time-starved, sleep-deprived couples. If you're one of them, you may think there's no way to bring joy to your relationship.

Think again.

In Making Happy, Drs. Les and Leslie Parrott explore the science, the art, and the practice of happiness in marriage. Drawing from real-life examples, the Parrott's offer insights into how your brain and relationship affect each other as you make happiness in your marriage a conscious, delightful habit.

    What if someone told you that you hold the key to unlocking your own happiness and even the happiness of your spouse? Often in our culture, people give up on marriage because it ceases to "make them happy," and they feel that they are entitled to this right. But what if happiness is not a right to be claimed, but rather a goal to strive after? A goal, not to seek after merely what boosts your own spirit, but what brings joy to others, specifically your "other half."

    In Making Happy, renowned marriage experts Les and Leslie Parrot teach you how to control the climate of happiness in both your life and your marriage, walking you through six "happiness boosters" _

    1. Count your blessings

    2. Try new things

    3. Dream a dream

    4. Celebrate each other

    5. Attune your spirits

    6. Add value to others

    Making Happy combines meticulous research with relevant anecdotes and sprinkles in a healthy dose of timely quotes and interactive quizzes to keep the reader engaged. Whether you're a single preparing for marriage, or a couple seeking to recover the joy in everyday moments together, this book is a great thought-provoking guide for those who strive for a blissful life.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from Worthy Publishing in exchange for my honest review.

    In Making Happy, Drs. Les and Leslie Parrott mix research and personal experience to teach the average couple how to bring more happiness into their marriage. The first couple of chapters are pretty heavily peppered with stats and studies that lean towards the clinical. Once you get to chapter three you begin to see the practical and yes simple applications to use in your marriage.

    The book focuses on six happiness boosters that you will learn to apply to your marriage relationship. In order to find out where you are at in your relationship there are several little quizzes scattered throughout. I thought they were very interesting and helped solidify what was being discussed.

    At the very end of the book is a Twenty-One-Day Happiness Plan. Each of the days has an activity that will enhance what you have just read. There are also links for additional resources to use during this twenty-one day period.

    This book would of course make a good study for any married couple. It would help those that are a bit unhappy in their marriage and it would affirm those that are quite happy in their marriage. I also think it would make a great small group study. While there is a section on marital sex, I didn't find it to be cringe worthy so I think you could easily do this with a few other couples.

    I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.
