Living In Love Book Review

James and Betty Robinson have been married for almost 50 years.  The two are co hosts of the T.V. show Life Today, which I have watched time after time over the years.  One thing that I notice about this couple is that they look like they are still in love even after all that time.
This lovely, grey haired couple have joined together to write the book, "Living In Love".  Inside they share keys to an exciting and fulfilling marriage.  James and Betty get very candid as they write through the pages, sharing their personal testimonies.  Everything hasn't been perfect for them, but they have worked together to make it through the storms of life. 
"Living In Love", is broken up into 4 main parts, Beginnings, Commitment, Communication, and Challenges. 

An example of the chapters inside are:

Expectations
Building Trust
Baggage- Junk in the truck
Communication
Confessions
Counsel
Sex
The Invisible Enemy

...to name a few.

Written in a dialogue format, this book allows you to see situations in their marriage from both perspectives. This is what I love most about this book.  Most books on marriage aren't penned this way.  To me, it gives validation to the couples authentic relationship.  At the end of each chapter, you'll find questions for reflection and discussion.  I would suggests reading this along with your spouse an then going over the questions together.  You just might learn something about each other!
Honestly, I didn't expect this book to be as of good of a read.  I thought it might be a little outdated because it's an older couple.  Boy was I surprised!  We should listen more to our elders because they have a wealth of wisdom for us to draw from.  The authors love has stood the test of time and they are more in love today than ever.  Whether you're are happily married or needing a little help, this is a great resource to add to your library.

Disclosure: I received this book in exchange for my honest review.  All opinions are 100% mine.
