Today, I want to share my top 5 favorite marriage books with you! I have not read them all yet but they are on my top lists. I love these books and whole-heartedly recommend. If you want to make a huge difference in your relationship, then you must read these books.

I know that life is busy and we women don’t always have a lot of time to sit, relax and read a good book. However, I believe that we need to be intentional about our marriages and you might be surprise how these books can transform your marriage into a happy, healthy and successful married life.

1. The Language of Love and Respect: Cracking the Communication Code With Your Mate” By Dr. Emerson Eggerichs

I believe that communication is a huge factor in healthy marriage life. And I think almost everyone knows it. But not everyone knows how to communicate with their partner and this is one of the common marriage issues.

Dr. Emerson Eggerichs says, “most spouses don’t know that they speak two different languages. They are sending each other messages in ‘code,’ but they won’t crack that code until they see that she listens to hear the language of love and he listens to hear the language of respect.”

In this book, you will learn an in-depth study of why your communication styles are not wrong, just different. It also includes and presents a step-by-step guide on how husbands and wives can learn to speak each other’s language.

2. “The Five Love Languages” By Gary Chapman

Falling in love is easy. Staying in love-that’s the challenge! How can you keep your relationship fresh and growing amid the demands and conflicts and just plain boredom of everyday life? I love this book.

You’ll discover the secret that will transform your marriage life, whether your relationship is flourishing or failing. Dr. Gary Chapman’s proven approach to showing and receiving love will help you experience deeper and richer levels of intimacy with your partner.

“If we learn to meet each other’s deep emotional need to feel loved, and choose to do it, the love we share will be exciting beyond anything we’ve ever felt.”-Gary Chapman

3. “The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands” By Dr. Laura Schlessinger

Women want to be in love, get married, and live happily ever after. Yet disrespect for men and disregard for the value, feelings, and needs of husbands. Those attitudes clash in unfortunate ways to create struggle and strife in what could be a beautiful relationship.

I think we women will do anything to take care of our children, and in this book, Dr. Laura reminds women that we need to take care of our husband as well. She also urgently reminds women that to take proper care of their husbands is to ensure themselves the happiness and satisfaction they yearn for in marriage.

4. “The Proper Care and Feeding of Marriage” By Dr. Laura Schlessinger

This is a great book to read for both husband and wife whether your newly weds or have been married for many years.

Dr. Laura presents a view that at first seems to run counter to today’s popular wisdom. But which is aimed at bridging the difficult gap between spouses by acknowledging that men are men and women are women.

Discovering the unique qualities of males and females, and what they have to offer each other, can be a way for marrieds to get closer.

There are a lot of great ideas, situations and examples from both the husband and wife perspective that address common problems in most marriages as she tells how and why it is important to nurture a relationship with those we love most.

5. “The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work” By John M. Gottman and Nan Silver

This book is a straightforward yet profound, these principles teach partners new approaches for resolving conflicts, creating new common ground, and achieving greater levels of intimacy.

Gottman offers strategies and resources to help couples collaborate more effectively to resolve any problem, whether dealing with issues related to sex, money, religion, work, family, or anything else to improve and strengthen your marriage.

These is the definitive guide for anyone who wants their relationship to attain its highest potential. There are even packed of worksheets with practical exercises that you can work on together or individually.
