Crazy Little Thing Called Marriage

Crazy Little Thing Called Marriage: 12 Secrets for a Lifelong Romance ***
by Greg and Erin Smalley

I try to read a book on marriage every so often to be challenged and encouraged. This book was such a disappointment. It wasn't necessarily bad, just boring. The book has twelve "Romance Secrets." However, the secrets were really just basic truths about marriage. For instance, you have to work out who is doing what chores. You have to both love and serve God to have a godly marriage. You have to be committed to your marriage. You have to live in relationship with other believers both younger and older than you, etc.
So, this may be an encouraging book for a newly married couple or a newly saved couple, but I found it just rehashed things I already know. And I'm not saying I know everything about marriage! I have read many books on marriage and keep learning new things. This just wasn't one of those great, insightful books.
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
