Reviews - What do customers think about 10 Great Dates To Revitalize Your Marriage?
Great Book!!! Jun 8, 2006
We were looking at new things to do in our marriage to make it a little stronger and just some new ideas. We got this book from our church who offered free child care while we had to read from the book and do that date every week. IT WAS GREAT! Me and my husband enjoyed reading from the book and it has been FUN! SOo if you would like to help the communication and get date ideas then this is the book for you!!! It talks about improving and/or keeping your marriage alive - it focus on communication but also touches on if you have kids, working, and finding time for your marriage. Overall i would reccommend it to any married couple!
Not what I was expecting Dec 25, 2004
Don't buy this book as a gift, unless you want to tell the recipients their marriage is on the rocks.
I got this book as a present for my sister-in-law and her husband, thinking it would be a lighthearted list of FUN ideas for things to do in their new free time. Wrong-o.
This book might be excellent for couples who are really, really fixated with their relationship, but for couples who just want to enjoy each other's company ... keep looking!
Wonderful Ideas Jun 7, 2002
There are some really wonderful ideas in this book -- although, in all honesty, some are rather ordinary. Take what is meaningful to you and put it into practice. My wife and I still "date" after 17 years together.
If you are looking for more creative dates I'd recommend you check out 300creativedates. com -- I came across the site and the material was outstanding.
Marriage builder Jan 22, 2002
My husband and I have gone thru this book twice. It's so easy to read and fun to put into effect. Who ever said you couldn't have romance AND marriage!?
Adult Dates May 2, 2000
I find it extremely sad that those who should be dating aren't and those who are dating (12 year olds) shouldn't be. Thanks to the Arps for advocating that adults should be dating even if they have been married for dozens of years. Another excellent book on this subject which has even more dating ideas than this one is The RoMANtic's Guide: Hundreds of Creative Tips for a Lifetime of Love. I think both books are outstanding.
