My thoughts:
Marriage is so much more than just staying together.  It is about love and commitment, respect, give and take and more.  I believe that marriage is made by God and is HOLY.  We need to grow together in our faith and in our knowledge of God to strengthen our marriage.  This book reminded me to think about the fact that my spouse is a child of God, not just my husband.  Each chapter of the book has questions for you to think about.  It is thought provoking.  I have added this to our family library and I feel it is a good book for married couples to read.
