Book Review: Save Your Marriage in Five Minutes a Day

Save Your Marriage in Five Minutes a Day
Bonnie Jacobsen
Save Your Marriage In Five Minutes a Day is a practical book with advice on how to make the best out of ordinary, everyday interactions. Sometimes life becomes a boring routine, and the spark of marriage can be snuffed out by the everyday of making meals, caring for children, and tolerating our jobs.

In this book, there are practical ways in which one can make an ordinary situation, something a little bit less ordinary. How a simple shoulder squeeze can make a difference, or how the tone of voice can change a response. These are simple, reasonable things that anyone can do, and that really do make a difference, and can help a marriage stay strong.

As practical as this book is, I found a significant downfall. Each practical suggestion is accompanied by a scenario where a husband and wife interact. The scenarios are common, situations that you can see happening, but the interactions between husband and wife? I found them to be unrealistic. In every scenario, one spouse seemed to be a collected therapist, in situations where most people would be hurt. In fact, I personally do not know of a couple that would really interact in such a way, not when emotions and hurt feelings are in the mix.

I recieved this book for free by in exchange for my honest review.
