are similar, but every marriage is different. – John Berger
From the moment
the “I Do's” are spoken and the marriage is pronounced, there begins
a lifetime commitment of togetherness. Unfortunately, when the honeymoon
is over and day-to-day life events start to set in to a normal routine,
the spark that once brought the couple together begins to fade.
This Old Spouse: A Do-It-Yourself Guide to Restoring, Renovating,
and Rebuilding Your Relationship is the perfect solution for
any marriage that finds itself in jeopardy. Wolf's philosophy centers
upon looking at a relationship as if it was a sparkling brand new
home. She refers to marriage as a commitment that takes a strong
foundation to build upon. If the structure is weak, cracks can form
that can put a definite strain on any relationship.
the eleven chapters of this book I was amazed how each one overflowed
with a wealth of knowledge and understanding. It was as though the
author had experienced each chapter and could lend her own expert
advice on how to handle each situation. As an added bonus, she devised
each chapter title with a bit of humor that is sure to put a smile
on your face as you discover all the helpful guidance it contains.
is the book to present to a newlywed couple. It will be one that
they treasure when they discover rough times ahead. It is also an
essential tool for those who have been in a marriage for many years
and find that they are close to parting ways. I fully believe this
one book has the power to restore any marriage to its original state
of happy bliss. Very highly recommended.
