    “It’s life that should be hard, not marriage. It’s marriage that should make the hard things in life easier because you have each other and because you have God.”

    Before I read the book I read reviews that stated this book was only a good book for dating/engaged/early married couples. While I can see where that is coming from and do agree this could be a great resource for those groups, I think there are great reminders in here for those that have been married longer as well.

They aren't professional marriage counselors, but they offer basic ideas that can strengthen a marriage no matter how long you've been together. It is obvious they have a genuine love for each other and for God.

    Oh my goodness this book is so cute!! I absolutely love Al Fox Carraway and her relationship with her husband is so genuine, sincere, and fun! I love how she tied in gospel principles that help her and her husband to thrive and grow in their marriage together. I definitely think this is a great read for singles, engaged and married couples! It was such a funny but motivating read!

    I think it's great that the Carraways have such a strong marriage (I bet when they talk on the phone they have one of those cute arguments over who will hang up first) but, let's be honest, their marriage is just beginning and it seems kind of prententious for them to be giving marital advice at this stage of their marriage. Everything in the book is common sense and can be found in any book on building a stronger marriage. IMO they should have waited 20 years (I pray they make it that long) and I think it's great that the Carraways have such a strong marriage (I bet when they talk on the phone they have one of those cute arguments over who will hang up first) but, let's be honest, their marriage is just beginning and it seems kind of prententious for them to be giving marital advice at this stage of their marriage.

    This book is so much fun! It's not often that you read a non-fiction book and can't keep yourself from smiling, but this is that kind of book! I love the way it's written. The first section is just a conversation between the two authors, husband and wife Ben and Al. And they are hilarious! They talk about pretty much everything from their backgrounds to how they met to how they get over their arguments. I love how they are just so honest and open about everything. Even if it's a topic that embar This book is so much fun! It's not often that you read a non-fiction book and can't keep yourself from smiling, but this is that kind of book!

They talk about pretty much everything from their backgrounds to how they met to how they get over their arguments. I love how they are just so honest and open about everything. Even if it's a topic that embarrasses them, they still talk about it in an open way. After their conversations, they talk about specific topics in each of the following chapters. I loved each of the chapters and learned a lot. Here's the chapter titles: It's Not About You; Communication; Always Have Time for Love; God's Will; Do Hard Things Together; God First, Bro; and Not Taking Things So Seriously. I loved that I personally learned things from each and every chapter. I loved that they included not only their personal stories and ways they learned each of the lessons they learned, but they also use personal stories from other couples and they are discreet and tasteful about it. This book is not a very long one, it is really an enjoyable read. I'm pretty sure it took me under an hour to read the whole thing, but it really resonated with me. I know I'm thinking of ways that I can take the lessons that Al and Ben have learned and apply them in my own life and marriage. Thanks to Al and Ben for opening up their lives and allowing us a peek inside! Check this one out, you'll love it as much as I did! And I just had to include the pictures they sent me of themselves, because aren't they just adorable!

    I am a fan of Al Carraway, so I hope not to sound overly critical in this review. I can see why other reviews talked about how this book is good/useful/helpful for couples who are dating/engaged/newly-married. The advice is kept simple and fairly rosy. It sometimes comes across painting an overly rosy view of what marriage is "supposed to" look like: "Life is hard; marriage shouldn't be hard." Ow, that hurt!

I'm sorry Al, but as someone who has had to work hard for my marriage relationship for nearly 39 years, that "piece of wisdom" stung! Not helpful, since the truth of the matter is that relationships take effort - consistent, constant & often hard work, to grow & to last. She didn't shy away from talking about how important spending time & making the relationship a priority are, but she made it all sound like fun & games. I listened to this book at a great time to hit the reset button, to remember fundamental truths of cherishing your partner, so I am grateful for the simple reminders of how to help your spouse feel loved & appreciated. If you've been married a long time, you might have to try not to roll your eyes at how gushy this book comes across at times, but all in all, a great reminder of principles that can help establish a great partnership in a marriage relationship.

    Al always does such a great job on her books. When I read this book it was like I was in an interview with her and her husband Ben as they shared their insights, thoughts, experiences, etc. The whole thing is centered around not only your relationship with your significant other but with God as well and being able to keep both in the loop as you live life. They included quotes from general authorities that aligned with the advice and experiences given. It was definitely an enjoyable read, I was Al always does such a great job on her books.

I had a hard time putting it down because it just sucked you in and made you want to read more, I was definitely sad when it was over. I would recommend this book to anyone who is seriously dating and looking for an eternal partner or couples who are planning on getting married or are already married. This would definitely benefit you and your relationship.

    Before this book I hadn’t read much written by Al Fox Carraway, nor have I ever heard her speak. This book will be more meaningful to someone who already knows and follows her, but for me I had to get used to her style of writing/speaking.

If you’re looking for a quick, light read with insights into another young couple’s marriage (and you already are a fan of Al) go ahead, read, and enjoy. But don’t expect “therapy” or anything backed by extensive research.

    A fun quick book to read and one with some good advice and reminders about relationships and marriage. I have previously read Al's first book and have followed her a bit on social media. She is such a fascinating person! It is easy to believe that what Al and Ben write about in this book is truly how their relationship really is. I love this quote from their book, "Because it's life that should be hard, not marriage.

    This is a quick engaging read. I love the conversational nature of the book and Al and Ben share many interesting anecdotes to illustrate the principles they are trying to communicate. I loved the emphasis they shared on the temple, but each section of the book was helpful and a great reminder about not taking for granted the little (and big) things that when done frequently help make a marriage great.

    I would not say Al Carraway is an amazing writer. But she is real and she’s so passionate that you just about can’t help but be touched by the things she shares. This book is just full of real, honest, deeply-heartfelt advice about having a meaningful relationship with your spouse. It’s simple stuff really, but it’s the simple things that both make a big difference and get forgotten. I’d say it would be a good book as a gift for newlyweds.

    I've got to say that this book has something for everyone. Even though I am not married, nor seriously dating someone I found this book very insightful. It had plenty of great advice for marriage and most importantly things to consider before marriage. I also found the lesson on communication to be able to be applied to any type of relationship. Loved this book, I'd read anything that Al or Ben wrote.

    This book was a good reminder to put God and my husband first. It is easy to slip into the routine of taking care of kids and just going through the little things in life. But it is a good reminder of priorities. I was a smidge annoyed when they acted like the "perfect" couple. They had been married only 4 years and wrote like they had it all figured out. It wasn't a big thing but it just bugged me a bit. But really, it was good advice and reminders!

    Hope I am a YSA of divorced parents. This book gave me hope for a happy marriage. Having been old enough to understand my parents divorce, it has been hard for me to believe that it was possible for me to have a strong happy marriage, Ben and Al were honest, positive, and hopeful about their marriage and all marriages. I loved it! So so single, dating or married people should definitely read this book!

    I love Al’s books, she puts her heart on the line as she writes and you can feel it. I love how she reminds us of God’s love. My sister got me “Cheers to Eternity” shortly before I got married to my husband. My favorite part was ‘Lesson Two; Communication’ (see pg 61) I loved hearing about Al and Ben’s perspective on how to communicate with your spouse. Great read if you are looking for and inspirational or religious based book.

    Well this was super cute! Super fast, fun read. I totally agreed with everything said in this book. Nothing they said was mind blowing new but they were all great reminders of ways to strengthen your marriage. I love how they tied in gospel principals, scriptures and quotes from our apostles. My favorite chapter was on accepting God’s will that really resonated with me. I highlighted lots in that section. I’m glad I bought this book so I can read it again!

    This was a really cute book. It's fun to see how other people see the importance of marriage, God and learning together. I don't know much about Ben, so it was cool to get to know him a little at the beginning of the book. They share the same love I have for the Temple so the last chapter of the book was my very favorite. Cute and fun read!

    Not really any “new” info on improving your marriage, but it was a sweet easy read. Al was married just a few days after my husband and I were so it was fun to hear them talk about their marriage and I felt like we have experienced similar things. An uplifting book that encouraged me to improve my marriage.

    Ashley

    Once again, Al’s upbeat and optimistic personality shines throughout the book. Her and her husband share very simple but powerful insights into what a successful marriage requires and entails. Similar to her first book, I found the writing style to be a bit unpolished and repetitive. But it was enjoyable and I feel like I walked away with several solid takeaways.

    LOVE this book! Al and Ben are hilarious but also so REAL! I started reading this into my third year of marriage and it has opened my eyes as well as comforted me in where my relationship is at. You don't have to be married or even in a relationship to read this, it is for anyone at any stage in their life! Definitely a book I will give as a gift to my friends though.

    Quick and insightful read I love how the book is very conversational. Al and Ben are both very relatable and have great insight to what has worked in their marraige. I can't wait to apply some of their ideas into my marraige.

    I love her books! There's the right amount of gospel, humor, and truth that create a wonderful book that's inspired me to be better. I enjoyed the topics that brought a good discussion with my husband.

    Having been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints my entire life, the advice and counsel they gave was not new. However, Al and Ben made following this counsel seem enjoyable and fun! Most importantly, they made it seem attainable.

    Such a great book. They really do bring a new joy and life to the idea of marriage through sharing their own personal experiences and lessons they have learned. It was awesome to read such a positive perspective on marriage and be reminded of why I got married in the first place. :)

    Short and sweet, but quite insightful. A great read for all ages, but especially for those who are dating or newly married. Al and Ben have a carefree and charming, real and honest love that is beautiful and fun to read about and learn from.
