Marriage is a complicated, complex idea. It is at once a lot of work and a lot of fun (hopefully). While we all think fondly of those early days when the storms of passion raged almost without warning, there comes a time when even the hottest fires start to wicker and wane needing to be stoked to their former glory once again. For some couples, the work that is needed will be minor. For others there are roadblocks and obstacles that need to be removed before the actual rebuilding can begin.
This book starts by identifying some of those roadblocks and how to remove them from your life before moving to rebuilding the flame whether it is smoldering or completely cold. It moves beyond the tried and true “date night” suggestion although it is mentioned here because it works. It is the willingness to make time for one another, the willingness to work toward a mutual goal that breeds the success here so it should not be dismissed out of hand.
