My husband & I have been married for 29+ years. We are opposites in personality type (I'm a first born & he's a baby of the family) not to mention the difference in the way the genders communicate & view life. Staying married in this day and age can be somewhat of a challenge.Some of the info I've heard before, but at this stage of our marriage I felt like I needed something more... this book offered solutions & perspective. It offered a different way of thinking & redirected my attitude from viewing marriage as a ho-hum routine to every day is a new opportunity to learn & to change. I appreciate & enjoy my husband more just by accepting who he is, who he isn't, and learning to count my blessings. Good book.
