I recently had the pleasure of reviewing a book as part of my work with CatholicMom.com – 101 Tips for a Happier Marriage: Simple Ways for Couples to Grow Closer to God and to Each Other by Jennifer Roback Morse and Betsy Kerekes of The Ruth Institute. I have to say that I am very impressed and 101 Tips may be one of the best books for Marriage I’ve read thus far because of its simple and practical wisdom for married couples. I think all married and engaged-to-be married couples should read this.
This is why I’ve teamed up with co-author Betsy Kerekes to offer you a chance at a FREE copy of her book!

Say, “Let me think about it,” when your spouse comes up with an idea different from yours. This gives you time to think before you speak. You are not required to defend all your own ideas before listening to alternatives.
This might mean leaving the room for a while. Just be sure to let your spouse know that you will get back to him or her soon. Take some time to think things through before you make any rash statements that you may regret later. If you truly listen and think about the alternative idea proposed by your spouse, you may realize that it is better than your own. Be happy about that.
