not what I expected Jun 21, 2007
I did not like the second story in this book, and so I threw the book away after reading it. The second story heroine seperates from her husband of 25 years over minor misunderstandings. She won't go back to him until he agrees to go to marriage counseling with her. There was no adultery, abuse, or abandonment. The story bothered me, because in real life, many who seperate end up divorced. This woman didn't have just cause for divorce and should have been willing to work through their problems while staying with her husband. The first story was fine.
What if your "perfect marriage" isn't as perfect as you thought? Feb 19, 2006
Romance. Conflict. Resolution through faith. I can't ask for more in inspirational fiction, and I found it all in Wedded Bliss? by authors Susan K. Downs, Kristy Dykes, Sally Laity and first-timer Carrie Turansky. Characters...forty-somethings to whom I can relate...encounter marriage and family problems as four couples face their twenty-fifth anniversaries and discover that perhaps their lives aren't as "perfect" as they thought. Four different stories, four different couples, four different "problems." But, each one finds their solution through soul searching and a strengthening of their faith. I love inspirational romance, and this novel is a great example. I highly recommend it. Congratulations, ladies, and please keep writing.
Cleaning the Rust from a Marriage Jan 21, 2006
Each story tucked within Wedded Bliss? truly captured the marital angst caused from the wear and tear of life. Every couple approaching a quarter of a century, or longer, of marriage has experienced crises, temptations or uncertainties never imagined when they stood at the altar.
Large and small decisions can have lasting impacts on a marriage. Downs, Dykes, Laity and Turansky are not afraid to examine the rust that can accumulate in our marriages over the years-parts we weren't aware of, didn't think we needed or were afraid to look at.
Each story crafts hope for the reader. The authors present realistic solutions, not platitudes.
A must read for the newly and not-so-newly married.

After 25 years, is marriage on the rocks? Dec 24, 2005
WEDDED BLISS? is a 4-n-1 anthology of the true-to-life stories of four couples on the verge of their twenty-fifth anniversary who have problems that at times seem too big to overcome. Just like real married couples, the couples in this anthology face difficulties and temptations and must choose what is best for themselves and their marriages.
As a reader who loves a good romance, I was skeptical about reading a book about long-time married folks, but I was pleasantly surprised. Each story held my interest and was engaging and heart-tugging. Having been married over thirty years, I could easily put myself in some of the situations covered in these novellas and could understand the depth of emotions and difficult choices facing these couples.
New author, Carrie Turansky, does an excellent job with her debut novella. Whether you're single, newly-wed, or have been married twenty-five years or more, you'll be encouraged and entertained by WEDDED BLISS? and learn that a good marriage is worth fighting for.
