I love to read. And I believe I found some amazing marriage books that can help build a strong marriage for newlyweds and seasoned lovers. I believe that just like a beautiful wedding supplies the excitement for a marriage, helpful books give guidance for the relationship afterwards.
1. Love & Respect– This book is amazing! Basically it helps a wife understand how to meet a husband’s needs and teaches a husband how to meet his wife’s needs. Men need respect just like women need love. It is profound and life changing.
2. Sheet Music – This book changed our sex life. Really any of Dr. Kevin Leman’s books are amazing and worth a read. He is so full of insight and knowledge and speaks in a very easy to understand way. This book explains sex within marriage in a very psychological way. Not only does he explain men’s desires to women, but he tells men how to treat a woman with love and romance and how that will change things in the bedroom!
3. Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus– I read this book when I was in high school. To this day we still reference it when we have issues. Basically, men and women see the world differently and understanding those differences really help alleviate a lot of issues.
4. The Five Love Languages– I read this book in one of my communications classes in college. It teaches you that people give and receive love in different ways. I discovered that my love language is gift giving. If you give me a thoughtless gift (or no gifts at all) I will feel unloved and unwanted.
