My favorite marriage book is Love and Respect by Emerson Eggerichs. This book explains marriage and how to have a happy, successful marriage better than anything I've ever read! It is written from a Christian standpoint using Ephesians 5:33 words of a man's true desire is to be respected and a woman's is to be loved.....and how to make that happen. Even if you don't take everything in this book as truth, just take most of it as truth and you will be astonished by how your marriage can change with this information!
