Is an argument-free marriage possible? Fawn Weaver's answer is yes, absolutely, even when one or both partners are strong willed, independent, and opinionated. (She admits to being all three.) In this groundbreaking book, the best-selling author and award-winning marriage blogger asks readers to invest twenty-eight days in learning how to live together without bickering, blame, angry outbursts, or silent treatments.
Fawn begins with the startling premise that, contrary to popular opinion, conflict in marriage is not necessary or inevitable. Then she leads readers on a day-by-day journey toward a more peaceful and supportive relationship. Chapter by brief chapter, she offers fresh perspectives and practical strategies for communicating effectively, building understanding, and defusing anger while at the same time nurturing honesty, vulnerability, and mutual support.

loreallepaAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Great book!August 22, 2015loreallepaAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I'm sure if I asked who wanted an argument free marriage, I'd see all sorts of hands going up...including my own! I can speak for my own marriage, most of our arguments are over small things and when the argument is over, sometimes I even have trouble remembering why it even started.
Fawn says that she is outspoken, so for her, an argument free marriage may be a difficulty. Boy, can this outspoken girl relate to that! One of the hardest things for me to do is keep my mouth shut and walk away from an argument. I have this deep desire to always get the last word in, and to be right. Not my most endearing qualities.
In the book, Fawn says that there are 3 things that are essential in creating an argument-free marriage, and that these can be replicated in any relationship one desires to last a lifetime (marriage, siblings, parents, children): Understand and obey the law of acceleration, Stick to the original emotion and Keep at the forefront of your mind this indisputable fact: that tomorrow may never come.
The authors tips are basicthings we know but too often dont follow: dont go to bed angry, for instance. Actually, this may be basic but it's a pretty big one. From my own experience, I can tell you when I've went to bed angry I just never sleep well that night. The Bible even says in Ephesians 4:26 to not let the sun go down while you're angry.
There were many pearls pf wisdom in this book. And Fawn has delivered in this book what she does with her website: disseminating encouraging messages about how marriages can thrive.
