I have to say that I agreed with the info that was packed into this little book. The advice given is tried and true with my husband and I. Personally, I would have loved to have this book years ago when we got together because we could have used the good advice. Our marriage is fantastic now but we had to work off our butts to get it there. The advice is a lot of the same things we would tell our friends...not only that, but they had great recipes that can be used for date nights and special occasions. This came at a perfect time for me because the book also contained "Luv-Pons" which are like....coupons! I put some of these in the hubby's birthday card and he loved them! I think this would make a great gift for a husband or wife and I also think it would be great for newly engaged or married couples as well.
