the perfect marriage book!!!

I absolutely loved this book! I listened to it every opportunity I had. I will listen to it multiple times over to master the strategies in this book. If only we knew this information 10 years ago, we wouldn't have gone through such adversity through the years. I will also look for another one of his books, "Two sides of love". Thank you, Dr. Smalley! Thank you for sharing your knowledge and experiences in this beautiful, awe-inspiring masterpiece!!!

for better or for best

I don't think I would recommen this book to anyone. It had some good points but it was very hard to stay focused and flow along. sometimes it was hard to relate and I oten thought that the situations of married couple were a little exaggerated.
