Great resource for any couple

Great resource for any couple. Being able to write down everything and have the exercises to do and be able to come back to at anytime is nice. This book would be helpful for any couple married or not, even if you are in a good place in your relationship it can only help improve it more.

Well explained

This book is very well explained and no marriage is perfect. I love that this workbook is a counseling that you can do at home. Not everyone wants to or has time to physically sit down with a counselor so now you can do in the privacy of your own home. This is a great book to help try to get things back on track or to just maintain a good path.

Awesome workbook

This was an awesome workbook. I loved the exercises in it and the chapters touched on subjects most couple avoid like finances and intimacy. I also suggest this book for couples who aren't married yet. It will allow them to see if marriage is really right for them.

Solved many of our problems

Definitely enjoyed this a lot and so did my husband I’m so glad I got the chance to work with this! It has definitely help us! It’s was a wonderful work book that both me and my husband enjoyed. We wanted to build our relationship and cover things that we weren’t really comfortable talking about like money and intimacy. We solved more problems with this than we would without it, and for that I am very glad!

Impressive ideas

I have been listening through this Marriage Counseling Workbook and I have been every impressed by the content. I am currently working as a therapist and I will say this workbook is extremely useful. I think that the main topics are wonderful and very thorough. The book does a great job at helping narrow down the biggest weaknesses in any given marriage and addressing these issues. It would be very hard to go through the workbook and not see some wonderful results in your marriage. Overall, this workbook is very high quality and I would recommend it to anyone.

Advantageous discourse until the end.

I wager this could support you, as well! It is stacked with procedures to discuss well with your accomplice and reinforce your bond. Second book centers around a well ordered program in breaking the codependency cycle.

Not your typical marriage ideas.

Majority of the ideas are quite hard to pull off, but they're worth the sacrifice. The writer of this bundle has done a nice presentation of what a healthy marriage really is.

Amazing workbook

This is an amazing workbook for any marriage. My husband and I have some issues communicating in a way that we both understand and it has caused arguments in the past. Ever since we have been doing this workbook together, our communication has improved greatly. My husband is a person who doesn’t like to seek counseling so having this helped us by allowing us to work on it in our own time in the comfort of our own home. I recommend this book to every couple out there. Even if you only have a slight issue or even none at all, this will help you understand each other more.

Perfect audible

No marriage is perfect and a marriage requires work even if you guys are in a "happy" place. I loved reading about the different struggles married couples go through and found them easy to relate to. I love the different suggestions and techniques mentioned in this book that can help reduce conflicts and promoting healthy communication. If you're looking to strengthen your marriage, this is a great workbook to get you started!

Powerful ideas

This workbook is small but powerful. My husband and I have been together for over 9 years and married almost 7. To say we have bad luck, is putting it nicely. We have been through the worst and it takes its toll on our relationship each time. This book is so simple but it has done a lot for us. I found it well written and easy for everyone to understand, plus.. it really helps. If you get the audiobook, make sure you have pen and paper ready.

Very thought provoking

Helpful if you need to repair your relationship or looking to enrich it. I believe this workbook has the tools to improve a relationship with partners committed to put out the effort to complete the exercises. It will take an open mind and honesty about your feelings, opinions, and concerns. With commitment and effort most marital problems are solvable. I recommend this workbook to heal and strengthen your marriage, to make positive changes and reconnect with your spouse. Note: We have not completed the book yet, but I really am enjoying the questions and exercises. Very thought provoking.

Awesome

I found this book to offer questions, quizzes and exercises to help strengthen your marriage. The reason why one to review this book is I am having a hard time lately in my marriage and in my life personally and I thought this may help me to bring it back to where it needs to be. And I did say that there are areas that need to be worked on within such as building trust, Explorer, and intimacy, facing finances which is huge right now. I liked all the different activities to try and also set up goals

Awesome book

This is an awesome book and I am not using that word lightly. I am not married yet but have been in a relationship with my significant other for years. We aren't having any major problems. But I wanted to listen this book just to be sure if we ever have issues I would know how to handle it. It has a lot of great ideas. It is easy to understand and has a lot of great tips. I would recommend this to anyone in a relationship even if they aren't married. I am very happy I choose this and read this book. I think it can really be helpful to people in relationships. The print is easy to see not too small to see. I think this is a really nice book.

Very well explained

This book is very well explained and very easy to follow along. No marriage is easy, with that being said, I wanted to read this after a particularly rough year, after almost 10 years of marriage. It was eye awakening not only to be reminded that a lot of our problems were “common,” but also where those feelings are reLly coming from. I am still working through the book, but am really finding it helpful. The journaling prompts and questions have been a great stepping stone to communication. I do wish I listened this sooner!
