Happily Ever After by Gary Chapman Book Review

Gary Chapman is the best sell author of The Five Love Languages has written a insightful, relevant, practical book "Happily Ever After".  Gary tackles some of the most common challenges marriages face today.  He uses real life examples, which helps the readers understand that they are not alone.  Often, many couples who are experiencing a challenge in their marriage feel that they are by themselves, but the reality is they are not alone.  This book helps the readers know that they are not alone and learn from others at the same time.  Gary discusses what he calls the Six Secrets to a Successful Marriage - Gary maintains that if we navigate these six areas successfully, we will have a successful marriage.  The six areas are:  1) Solving Conflicts without Arguing
                 2) Negotiating Change with Your Spouse
                 3) Making Money an Asset in Your Marriage
                 4) Marriage After the Children Arrive
                 5) Making Sex an Act of Love
                 6) Becoming Friends with Your In-Laws
As you can see this list is a pretty conclusive list, I can assure you that after you finish reading this book you will have insight into what can be done to help you in your marriage.  I want to be clear, this is not only a book for those who find themselves in challenging situations, its also for marriage counselors, leaders, Pastors, etc.  Its a great resource for a newlywed couple or it could be an anniversary gift for a couple celebrating many years of marriage.  I really enjoyed this book. I highly recommend it!

Note: I received this book free from the publisher through the Tyndale Blog Network book review bloggers program. Other than that, neither the publisher, author nor anyone connected to them offered any influence on the content of my review.  The opinions I have expressed are entirely my own
