Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Marriage counselors and first-time authors, the Blooms nearly called their union quits in 1987; their anecdotes reflect the "acceptance, gratitude, and appreciation" that they employed to save it. Some of these honest, candid stories (many from the authors) are more illustrative than others, but most vividly demonstrate that successful relationships require effort. One such story, "Commitment Isn't a Prison," ponders the blessings of loving, supportive spouses. Another, "It's Not What You've Got; It's What You Do with It," describes how Bubba, despite being "short, homely, chubby, and bald," receives his heart's deepest desire in a sweet marriage. Other stories address friends, ultimatums, and irreconcilable viewpoints, all with the intent of heading off problems rather than fixing them. For libraries needing to replace worn-out warm-fuzzies like Cheryl Richardson's Life Makeovers. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
