Do You Have A Highly Happy Marriage? - Book Review

I received a copy to review.  All opinions are mine.

A few months back, I came across another marriage resource called, "The Surprising Secrets of Highly Happy Marriages, the little things that make a difference," by Shaunti Feldhahn.  She is the best selling author of For Women Only which I have, but have never read.  Tsk tsk, I know.  At any rate, I knew this would be a great read.

Inside, you will discover that there are little things that people to do in a marriage that can make your marriage quite successful.  Most folks overlook these small actions, but not the Highly Happy Yes! couples.

Yes! couples are a group of couples that Shaunti surveyed about the marriage and they both  answered yes to the same questions meaning, they were both very happy and believed that there spouse would never do anything intentionally to hurt them.  I must mention that there were many couples interviewed, but not all of them felt the same way as the other souse.  Those couples were not considered Highly Happy because they differed and were not really on one accord.

Contents include:

1. The truth about Highly Happy and You

Highly Happy Couples:
2. Know little is big
3. Believe the best
4. Go to bed mad.
5. Keep score.
6. Boss their feelings around
7. Have factual fantasies
8. Use sign language
9. Hang out
10. Don't tell it like it is.
11. Look Higher
12. Get in over their heads
13. Think they hit the jackpot

14. Putting the secrets to work.

My thoughts:

I have dog-eared just about every page in the book, no kidding.  I think the most important message that I get from it is to always be positive.  Believe the best in your spouse.  Do things for your spouse out of love, not expecting anything in return.  And so on.

I felt that the info shared in this book was quite helpful to me.  Sometimes you can get into a negative thought pattern if you allow yourself to.  This teaches how you can make simple, small, changes that will have a huge impact on your union.

Do you have a Highly Happy marriage?  What are doing to make it better?
