    We applauded business professionals when they read business minded books throughout the year These reads are praised as boosting business acumen and relished as a sign of leadership But, as I read this book I noticed the MANY stares from others, skeptical of my reading choices and likely questioning the strength of my own marriage, because it would seem, rarely do couples read marriage books and god forbid they do so in a public space Often partners do not seek counselling advice unless som We applauded business professionals when they read business minded books throughout the year These reads are praised as boosting business acumen and relished as a sign of leadership But, as I read this book I noticed the MANY stares from others, skeptical of my reading choices and likely questioning the strength of my own marriage, because it would seem, rarely do couples read marriage books and god forbid they do so in a public space Often partners do not seek counselling advice unless something bad has happened or their spark has diminished However, I feel it is extremely important we break these stereotypes Like business, it is good practice to check up on your marriage, whether this occur through reading, counseling or scheduled couples time As an avid reader, I enjoy reading diverse topics, including one such as this, and while I would classify my own marriage as happy and healthy, I still had a few great takeaways from this read I hope to incorporate with my own spouse One of my favorite topics was Welch s chapter on communication I found his ideas are not limited to marriage communication, but the examples within were understandably tied to couples The idea of brevity in speech resonated with me My personality type is well studied and prefers a get to the point type of presentation in the workplace, I like to stay on topic, am driven by deadlines and am very analytical Obviously, this personality does not stop when I arrive home, and my husband is well known for his long windedness, so this was a great reminder to the two of us in communication styles Unfortunately, at times this book was rather dull and was organized like an intense therapy session It lacked stories and examples and required the reader couple to really dig DEEP and analyze EVERY flaw One really needs to know their self, and their spouse, to do many of the exercises, and while few chapters had some immediate takeaways, many required deep reflection Additionally, the title was specific to 10 Choices, but the book had 15 chapters, this made it hard to really understand the 10 items I was supposed to grasp, and the organization certainly could have been paired down, the arrows by some headers and not others was distracting and made sections seem less important than the arrowed sections While I 100% believe that marriage books should become a routine part of every couple s reading list, I would not necessarily recommend adding this one to this year s list Disclaimer A review copy was provided by the publisher All opinions are my own

    YES I am a fan of this book and it s message The overall theme is about how love is a choice, not a feeling That is something that is not commonly taught in our culture, even in Christian circles unfortunately, though I do think that is starting to change.I m not married or engaged or even dating anyone But I think anyone can read this book and start formulating what it looks like to lay down your desires for someone else.Dr Welch presents clear challenges in each chapter of tangib YES I am a fan of this book and it s message The overall theme is about how love is a choice, not a feeling That is something that is not commonly taught in our culture, even in Christian circles unfortunately, though I do think that is starting to change.I m not married or engaged or even dating anyone But I think anyone can read this book and start formulating what it looks like to lay down your desires for someone else.Dr Welch presents clear challenges in each chapter of tangible choices you can make to improve your marriage If you were an engaged couple or newly married, these would be choices you would want to implement from the beginning to help you start off and create a strong foundation for your marriage I personally think this would be a great book for engaged couples.Each chapter has activities for the couple to do and work through I read them, though I didn t do them obviously and they seemed like they stretched and challenged without being impossible.Another huge theme that encompasses many of the choices is communication My family has a saying that I m sure is not unique to us , communication is such an important thing Usually it gets brought out when someone has not communicated to another person as a joke or shrug off I have seen enough of the problems that result when there is bad or no communication to know that this is an important aspect of marriage If a couple can communicate, they can work through the activities in this book.An excellent, excellent book Highly recommend

    One of the best things about this book from Dr Ron Welch is that he starts with the premise that EVERY relationship has conflict I think that is so important for people to hear in today s world I ve heard of far too many people who walk away from a relationship they ve invested in because, it just shouldn t be this hard And as someone who has been with the love of my life for over 35 years, I can say with authority ha that love is hard But, oh so worth it In 10 Choices Successful Coupl One of the best things about this book from Dr Ron Welch is that he starts with the premise that EVERY relationship has conflict I think that is so important for people to hear in today s world I ve heard of far too many people who walk away from a relationship they ve invested in because, it just shouldn t be this hard And as someone who has been with the love of my life for over 35 years, I can say with authority ha that love is hard But, oh so worth it In 10 Choices Successful Couples make, Dr Ron Welch shares that it s how we react to the conflict that can shape and mold us and yes change us as we grow in relationship with others While everything in this book is good and helps us build better relationships, I think the thought that stuck with me is the difference between a me centered marriage and an us centered marriage This is a concept that I learned many many years ago in a relationship class during my freshman year of college If we concentrate on giving instead of getting our relationships will grow That can be hard in this world we live in that continuously says our happiness is dependent on everything being about me and how smart brave strong etc I am Fortunately, Dr Welch shares thoughts and strategies and exercises to do together to build a successful relationship together

    The tragedy is that many couples don t pay attention to their marriage until it is broken This quote is taken from Dr Ron Welch in his book 10 Choices Successful Couples Make This book is a comprehensive look at decisions spouses can make to build a strong, lasting marriage The ideas are basic and fundamental to a healthy thriving marriage Each chapter contains exercises that a couple can work through together to practice what they have just read Dr Welch is very easy to understand, and The tragedy is that many couples don t pay attention to their marriage until it is broken This quote is taken from Dr Ron Welch in his book 10 Choices Successful Couples Make This book is a comprehensive look at decisions spouses can make to build a strong, lasting marriage The ideas are basic and fundamental to a healthy thriving marriage Each chapter contains exercises that a couple can work through together to practice what they have just read Dr Welch is very easy to understand, and he is very practical in his approach If I had one criticism, it is the lack of Bible in this book He does state from the beginning that this book is written so that believers and non believers could gain from it It is true he has helpful truths, most of them based on Bible themes However, I believe the foundation of a healthy marriage is prayer and Bible God designed marriage to reflect Christ s love for the church.If you read the book with the understanding that God is the ultimate source for strength and unity in your marriage, I believe this book contains many helpful truths and foundational truths to a healthy, thriving marriage His final sentence sums it up Make the decision to write a new chapter in the great story of your lives and choose to love each other forever marr
