Books about marriage...it seems like everyone and his personal trainer has written one.
I'm waiting for Mick Jagger's contribution.
But seriously, while recognizing that content is obviously important, what may be even more vital is what I call "demonstrated willingness".
Taking the time to read a book that can benefit your marriage (and can make you uncomfortable in the bargain) is both a statement of faith, and a statement of commitment.
It says "we are important to ME".
There are few more heartfelt statements one can make.
I'm linking to Messy Marriage, but as I am trying to write this on my wife's smart phone, adding the link back is beyond me. I figure I'm doing good to get this far.
I'll try to respond to comments when it's possible to borrow the phone...please do comment for the benefit of other visitors, and please be patient for my response...I'm still here, though the past couple of weeks have been rather an ordeal.
