Good information nicely delivered.

I really liked this series. For me, in the context of a contented 30+ yr marriage, I learned a thing or two! And HA!, several things we already practice turn out to be good planning on our part. I'd recommend this to anyone in or thinking about a marriage. Or anyone who knows somebody who is married. The format and performance are listenable and the content is sometimes witty, sometimes heartbreaking, and always relevant.

Heart warming and Frank.

I enjoyed the presentation style, everyone was very easy to listen to. There were interesting insights and it's a great aid to reflection on your own situation. We often learn the most from listening to the stories of others.

Another bull's-eye of an audio series

After listening to the series "How not to f*ck up your kids too much" I had high expectations for this. They were absolutely fulfilled! A great series, sensitively and humorously presented, with a super high proportion of deep and interesting information.

Wow, marriage game changer!

l listened to this book whilst painting my roof and l came down off that roof a different person. l was 15 when my relationship started and a mother at 16 and very happy 30 years later but listening to this book has given me an deep insights into relationships and has given me an appreciation for my marriage and family, thank you for that, Stephen Marche.
I cried my way through the last chapter (hard to do while painting a roof). l will always give thanks for what I have for the time that l have it. That's love.
