Could 12 Hours Change Your Marriage?

posted by Michele Olson

There are lots of great books out there about marriage. One of my favorites is on our recommendation list on the right hand side of this blog. It’s called How to Improve Your Marriage Without Talking About It by Patricia Love and Steven Stosney I think it has some very fresh ideas regarding how we treat each other and perceive one another in marriage.

I came across another book with an intriguing title and would love to see one of our bloggers read it and let us know if you think it worked This book is called 12 Hours to a Great Marriage written by Howard J. Markman, Scott M. Stanley, Natalie H. Jenkins, Susan L. Blumberg and Carol Whiteley. One has to think that with so many authors there must be some value in this book!

Other authors in the marriage world also seem rather excited about the book…

"This book makes lasting love achievable." — John Gray, author, Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus

"I love this book! It's like hiring your own top-notch relationship coach for twelve hours and getting a lifetime's worth of lessons for creating a loving, lasting marriage." — Michele Weiner-Davis, author, The Sex-Starved Marriage and Divorce Busting

"It actually makes working on your marriage fun. In fact, it introduces an approach that believes having fun is one of the hallmarks of a successful marriage." — Diane Sollee,, and founder and director of the Coalition for Marriage, Family and Couples Education

"Delivered in a personal and engaging style, the most helpful book yet from the 'dream team' of marriage educators." — William J. Doherty, Ph.D., professor, University of Minnesota, and author of Take Back Your Marriage

The table of contents is not broken into chapters, but rather each chapter is an hour.

12 hours? Want to give it a try? This is a great tool to invest in working on your marriage.
If you’ve read the book and have feedback, please blog. Are you thinking about getting the book and devoting 12 hours to your marriage? Let us hear from you too.
