This Old Spouse
A Do It-Yourself Guide to Restoring, Renovating, and Rebuilding Your Relationship

by Sharyn Wolf

All weddings 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.

Sharyn Wolf's 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.

Throughout 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.

This 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.
