Every newlywed couple is going through a big learning experience as they figure out how to live with each other FOR THE LONG HAUL! Gone are the days for free-spending single life. As a married person, your decisions have a direct impact on your spouse and vice versa. Now that you’re married, you’re a team, and that can be such a wonderful thing if you can both agree on how to work well as a team. Thankfully, a lot has been written on this topic. And because so much has been written about it, sometimes we can get paralyzed when it comes to choosing the best books on the topic. So, to help you in your research, here is a shortlist of a few books that every newlywed couple should read!
8 Books every newlywed couple should read:
The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman
Yes, it’s a little cliche, but the truth is that this book is a great conversation starter and can help you and your spouse understand what makes each other tick and what doesn’t.
As a Man Thinketh
As a Man Thinketh is a book that is really more of a goal-setting book. It’s surprising how many people don’t know how to look beyond today, and as a couple you should begin early to plan for your long-future together.
Becoming Wise by Don Ruiz
Don’s book, “Becoming Wise”, is a must have for every newlywed.
The Secrets of Happy Families
Usually when a book begins with the words “The Secret of or the secret to” I never pick it up. However, this one seems to have it figured out. It’s a great read and an easy one at that.
The Art of Communicating
Almost all arguments that happen in a relationship are caused due to poor intercommunication skills. Fix that by reading this book!
How We Love
Not “why” we love or “who” we love, but “how” we love. This is a practical, paradigm-shifting must-read.
