This book is definitely for Christian couples and christian marriages. The item description never says this. I was disappointed to find that many of the chapters were about creating a great relationship under Christ and under God. This is a great thing to have in a relationship if you are christian. People get married who are not Christian. Some of the chapters had great advice and many chapters could be used by people of any faith. I just feel that the item description should mention that the book focuses on a marriage under Christ. Do not give this as a gift to a newly married Jewish, Muslim, Indian, Atheist, etc couple.
