The Surprising Marriage has been an excellent book for my husband and me. We had not been praying or studying scripture together and decided that this book would help us get our feet wet. The only thing (which is still a benefit) is that as fairly newlyweds (2 yrs) we haven't experienced some of the situations asked about in the book. However,this may help us in the future when we do experience these. Great book! Looking forward to trying more in the series.
