About this book:
The authors draw on their own successes and failures as husbands to provide the reader with new insights into how every marriage can move forward. If you've read a handbook on improving your golf swing, finances, or health, why not take the same approach to what matters most in your life: your family. Each chapter ends with points to consider in your marriage, leading you to your own insights into making the most of being a great leader, lover, and nurturer from this day forward. Practical and based on real life experience, this handbook provides steps for effective communication, anger management, and better sex.
The secret to a happy marriage is in knowing that married life is a work in progress. If you think the dating stage of your relationship with your wife ended with "I do," it's time to think again. Whether your last date with your wife was ten years, thirty-three years, or two weeks ago, let the enthusiasm you shared spring up every day of your married life.
