The Marriage You've Always Wanted by Gary Chapman (Book Review & Giveaway)

If your marriage is perfect, peaceful, argument-free, and teddibly romantic, just leave. Leave now. You don't need this book.

I'm sure I'm in the minority here, but my marriage is far from perfect. My dear husband and I do argue. (Heh...oh, yes, we do...and it's always his fault....) And...what exactly is romance again? 

Seriously, if you're married you have discovered that marriage is nothing like it's portrayed in books and movies. Nothing at all. Marriage isn't about 24/7 romance and the fulfillment of all your dreams. Marriage is about hard work, exhaustion, exasperation, frustration, togetherness, tender moments, fulfillment, sacrifices, bad breath, weight gain, pet peeves, tears, laughter, an empty bank account, and a mailbox stuffed with bills. And yes, it's about dreams come true, depending on what your dreams are.

  1. Thank you for introducing us to this book, Jessica! It sounds like a very worthwhile tool to strengthen any marriage. Even though my hubby and I have had 45 years of marital "bliss" (HA!!!), there are always places where we need to grow. Our lives have changed, our bodies have changed, our income has changed, but our love remains strong and our faith in God is the glue that keeps us together. I would love to be entered into the giveaway, please. Have a wonderful day!
