Relationship Therapy Books to Read Before Saying I Do

I am a book lover. I have loved reading books for as long as I could read and I have passed that love over to my kids. They love reading and it makes me very happy. I read all sorts of books, relationship books, self-help books, business books, finance books and more. The goal for 2019 is to read a book a week and so far so good I am on track with my week 3 book already.I learn a lot from reading books, and I love the fact that there is a book for every niche. And Amazon Kindle has made my love for reading a lot stronger thanks to how easy it is to think of a book and start reading in within a minute.

Relationship Therapy Books to Read Before Saying I Do

In the last few months, I have been read a lot of relationship books on my Kindle and I recommend some more than others. These relationship books I recommend are great for intending couples to read before they say their vows. Marriage should be a life long commitment, which is why intending couples need to ensure they go for premarital counseling and ask the right questions before the get married.

There is no reason not to have a form of premarital counseling. With the advancement of technology, you can even have your sessions online if you need to. Myself and my husband had premarital counseling, and I would advise any couple to have some counseling sessions with a qualified therapist before exchanging vows. I would also advise couples to read as many relationship books as possible before their big day.

Here are my 3 top relationship books to read before you get married –

 

The 5 Love Languages: The Secret to Love that Lasts by Gary Chapman

I have read this book a few times and I really like it. It explains  the 5 love languages in detail, and I thinks every couple should it. It is a great relationship book to read before you say I do. Gary Chapman is a terrific author. He explains the different 5 expressions of love and how to identify and communicate effectively in a spouse’s “love language.”. This is a great premarital book to read.

 

101 Questions to Ask Before You Get Engaged by H Norman Wright

Many couples fail to get to really know their potential spouses while they are courting. They spend their time on unimportant things and forget to pay attention to things that really matters. This book helps couples ask in-depth and personal questions in order to see if they would make it to the altar. It is definitely worth reading.

 

Questions for Couples: What to Ask Before You Say “I Do”: A Primer for Planning Your Future Together and A Guide to What to Expect From Premarital Counseling (The Wedding Series)

This is another great book to read. It is a guide that offers over 450 realistic and practical questions in 18 categories for intending marriage couples. This book covers topics from Finances and Intimacy to Religion and Children. It also guides couples on what to expect from premarital counselling. It is a great book.

 

Have you read any of these relationship therapy books? What are your thoughts on premarital counselling?

The top 3 benefits to owning a Murphy Bed

More people are moving to the city and because of that urban living has changed in the past several years. For one, more people are owning units in skyscrapers rather than having the classic white picket fence arrangement. Because of this, being wise about the space you have is everything especially if you want to call it your home. It’s important to be wise about how you use your available space so you can move freely and still own stuff that matters to you. Because of this, a lot of space-saving furniture has been creating for the past few years to answer this need. One of these is the rising trend of owning a Murphy bed. Space saving beds are so important in homes that have limited space.

With this kind of bed, you get to think of other ways to utilize your space since you can fold your bed.

Here are the top 3 benefits to owning a Murphy Bed.

1. You have the freedom to customize it to fit your needs

It’s always nice to have furniture that you can easily customize because you have the freedom to move it around or place it in your preferred location. You can even have the option to either design it as an individual unit or as a part of your cabinetry unit. You can also have it designed to have storage or shelving. Murphy beds are a great choice for those who need to have spaces for storage but only have a limited living area. The ability to customize Murphy beds compared to regular beds are what makes it worth it because then you don’t have to worry that your other furniture and things at home have nowhere else to be.


2. Murphy beds can complement your home’s decor

One of the things that we always consider when we are buying a new furniture is if it matches our home’s decor. Furnitures that don’t seem to complement with the rest of the stuff in your home is such a big no-no. The good thing is that Murphy beds can easily blend in with the rest of your stuff at home because it is easily customizable. You can work and collaborate with a designer who can do a custom design of your Murphy bed that can be folded beautifully into a cabinet of sort or something that can be functional throughout the day when you are not using it. You can also have it designed to utilize all available space in your home. Unlike ready-made classic beds, there are chances that to doesn’t fit perfectly well into your limited space. Worse, you cannot just move it around whenever you want to, making it frustrating to look at when you want to style your home.

3. It is as comfortable as a regular bed

Most people think that you will lose a sense of comfort if you choose a Murphy bed for your home. However, it is actually as comfortable as conventional beds. It comes with high-quality mattresses that can guarantee you a great night sleep.
