About the Book:

My Review:
 For over twenty years now, I have been married to my sweetheart. And as time as went on loving him has actually always been a natural thing to do, but wanting to love him or even like him, well lets just say--not so easy sometimes. We dedicated our lives to our children and I hear this is where we went wrong. It's okay for them to be your primary focus, just don't take your eyes off the one thing that brought you together and created that family to begin with. The fire definitely starts to fizzle over time.

 Romancing Your Better Half, is a self help guide to getting that love back. This book is for both the woman and man side of things. The author tries to change your mindset into getting your marriage on the right track and keeping it there for a long term payoff. Both spouses HAVE to be committed to this or it will never work. The author does an excellent job of showing the differences in the way a woman thinks as opposed to how a man thinks. I really believe this is the key to happiness in marriage. I enjoyed the book the most because of the intimacy building tips included at the end of each chapter.
