Overview The point is to make a marriage last, and to have fun while living it. All the tough bumps are part of this lively collection, but they're outnumbered by reminders of the deeply satisfying pleasures that a well tended marriage can bring. Women and men alike will chuckle knowingly as they read these one-a-day proverbs. Wit and encouragement warm the pages. The illustrations keep the book light and full of the every-day. The wonderfully wise sayings are arranged by seasons: "Spring" is about beginnings. "Marriage is like building a house. Laying the foundations often means digging tough ground." "Summer" reflects added responsibilities and often children. "Be careful with each other's feelings. We are all more fragile than we seem." "Autumn" is full of refreshment and rethinking. "Welcome different interests in each other's lives, but not to the detriment of your life together." "Winter" is about the warmth of commitment. "It is peculiar how the irritating traits of yesteryear can become endearingly familiar after long years of acquaintance." A tempting little book full of wit, wisdom, and encouragement to love with depth and consideration. Wise and witty words to provide guidance and inspiration for a lifetime of marriage.
