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 –
