    Having a successful marriage is hard. What fascinated us in our potential spouse often is found irritating after marriage. Choices are made everyday that lead to improvement or decline in a marriage. How do we know what to do?

    The Merrills have been working for twenty years on making marriages better. They have taken their combined experience and an analysis of comments on their posts and created lists. They have developed the format of lists because they can be readily used in our fast paced and complicated lives.

    The lists are designed to help us manage our expectations, evaluate how we are doing (using God's standards), and give ways to improve our marriage. The Merrills have found that these areas are ones where people want help.

    There are thirty lists so one could be reviewed each day for a month. Readers could also just go to a specific list, wanting to work on a specific area. There are Taking the Next Step sections at the end of each chapter containing evaluation questions and action suggestions.

    What are on these lists? The first one contains truths, such as, marriage is hard work. The next one contains things to remember, like our marriage vows. Other lists remind us of the power of words, actions to stop doing, unfair expectations we might have of our spouse, what we should expect of our spouse, what we want to hear from our spouse, forgiveness, respectful treatment in public, and much more.

    There are two books, one with lists for husbands and the other with lists for wives. The text of both books are generally the same except when dealing with gender specific issues. What wives would like to hear from their husbands is quite different from what husbands would like to hear from their wives. There is a chapter for husbands on pornography while the corresponding chapter for wives deals with hardening the heart. But the format of the books allow spouses to generally discuss each chapter together.

    I like the way these books have been designed. I like the idea of doing a chapter a day for a month, then starting over again. The suggestions for evaluation and action at the end of each chapter are good. Some of the suggestions seem a little contrived, however. I'm not sure I'd appreciate a compliment I received from my spouse knowing it came verbatim from a book.

    I recommend these books to couples wanting to tune up their marriage. The books would also make a good anniversary gift. While God is mentioned frequently in these books, there is no use of the Bible so these books would be good for all couples, not just Christians.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. My comments are an independent and honest review.

    This review was written for Lists to Love By for Busy Husbands - eBook.
    This book is articulate and original when it comes to helping couples to strengthen their marriages. It has so much information but it isn't information overload like so many self help books. It talks to you on your level not over your head. It first gives you instructions the ways to do the book and then the book begins. You first learn the 7 truths about marriage and then at the end of that they ask you some serious questions. Those questions are very poignant to your marriage - and boy do you start thinking about it. Then the second chapter you are given more lists with explanations for each steps etc, then again the questions after and by the end of the book you feel like you have truly touched so deep into your marriage and that you have grown together in GOD, and love and respect and oh so much more for each other. This is such a wonderful growing book and so worth the read. I received a copy of this book from Hachette in exchange for an honest review.
