The Marriage you always wanted, Gary Chapman -Book Review

About the book;
"Respected marriage counselor Gary Chapman looks at the key issues that will help you build the marriage you've always wanted, answering such real-life questions as . . .
Why won't they change?
Why do we always fight about tasks and responsibilities?
Why should we have to work at sex?
In the warm, practical style that has endeared him to audiences worldwide, Dr. Chapman delivers advice on all the "big issues" of:
Money
Communication
Decision making
In-laws
and much more
Each chapter includes a "Your Turn" opportunity for reflection and interaction with between spouses.
Discover the "joy potential" in your marriage and your "ministry potential" for God!"

This book is so easy and quick to read. I want to describe this book as short and sweet, but it's not really either. 
It's short compared to other relationship books, and by sweet I mean it's written is a very understandable and relatable way. 
Gary Chapman challenges the reader to look at themselves, not their spouse (what can you do to change, what can you do to better the relationship). 
He offers hope for a better relationship, even if only one spouse wants to work on their marriage. Most importantly, the book stresses that God needs to be at the center of a marriage for both people to enjoy their union to the fullest. 
At the end of each chapter is a "Your Turn" section where Gary Chapman has challenges for the reader.
I think this book would be a great place to start for couples (or just one spouse) if they're wanting to work on their relationship since it is such and easy book to read but it's still packed with information. But it is also a great book for those (such as myself) who are firm believers in reading books about christian marriages.
 
"I received a copy of this book from the publisher for the purpose of this review."
