My Favorite Books on Marriage

July 8th, 2014 by Andy

As you may know I will be publishing my book, The Partnership Marriage: Creating the Life You Love…Together, very soon! I have the book cover ready to go and I just submitted the final proof to the publisDSCF2818her.

I thought that I’d give you the list of my favorite books on marriage and link them to Amazon where you can see if they’d be of interest to you…and even buy them if you want to!
