Stress-Proof Your Marriage

When I saw that the Catholic Company had a book called "Stress-Proof Your Marriage" and it was a 30-Minute Read my first thought was 'How can you go wrong?'. Thirty minutes of time and 61 pages later I knew I would not be out much if the book was a waste.

Let me start by saying that I feel like I have a wonderful marriage. Like all marriages it has its ups and downs but we work hard to keep it strong at all times. We don't have any "issues" or major stresses right now. However, you always need to work on your marriage even when everything is going good.

This book is a great read for when you are in either a good place or just need a little fine tuning. It helped remind me of the basic things that keep a marriage strong. Sometimes its the little things that make a big difference. Since this is a Catholic book it did a great job focusing on God, prayer and worship as a centerpiece to a healthy marriage. Always important to remember!

You can read this book either separately or together. Don't feel like you have to read it as a couple if you spouse is not a big reader or it's hard to find the time to read together. The book is broken up into chapters like Talk, touch, share, etc. This helped me personally fit it into my schedule. I just tucked this small book into my purse/diaper bag. When I was waiting in the car line at school I could pull it out and read it.

I give this book two thumbs up!

My disclaimer about the book: IF you and your spouse need more then a little fine tuning this book is NOT for you! Personally I would recommend going to a Marriage Encounter weekend (excellent experience) or if you are considering divorce attend Retrovaille.
