    The overview presented for this book does not accurately represe

    The overview presented for this book does not accurately represent the spirit of the book.  The overview implies that the book is about
    the "Don'ts" in a marriage.  In reality, this book is about the "Do's" .  The beauty of this piece is how it present guidelines
     for relationships that come from a positive perspective.  The book is about how to create positive habits that enhance the quality
     of a marriage (or quite frankly, most any relationship).  I read this book concurently with a very negative manual of relationship-building
    called "Too Close, Too Soon".  The contrast of perspective made me especially appreciate this guide.  The fact is, our brain is not wired
    to do well with "Don't".  Repeat to yourself "Don't eat chocolate", and all you can think about it chocolate.  This book recognizes that truth
     and instead focuses on filling your brain and your relationship with positive, loving habits.  I am half of a very successful 25 year marriage.
      We are very often asked how we stay so happy.  Though we obviously did not read this book 25 years ago, it contains many
     suggestions that we long ago implemented.  I read this book after being asked to recommend a book for young couples, and I would
     indeed recommend it as an excellent start.  (It is also a quick, pleasant, light-hearted read.)
