This review is well put together and is insightful into this book. If I was married, based on this review, I would be very interested in this book.

Love, polarity and personal development are purported as the three main components to a successful marriage in this book. I love the idea that it comes off as advice coming from a friend, rather than a bit preachy, which is often the case in books like this. Finally, personal anecdotes are an excellent way to connect with the reader as well.

Great book! The facts stated therein are true. Being written by experienced couples with lots of ups and downs gives the book more credit. I recommend to married couples and singles.

I enjoyed the tone of this book, but the author keeps referring to marriage as "between a man and woman" which feels like it's specifically meant to preclude anyone on the queer spectrum. For someone who states that the institution of marriage needs revamping, this exclusion feels particularly damning.

This book Cracking the CODE to Marital Bliss written James and Kimberly sounds quite appealing in terms of tips they provide for healthy and longevity of the marriage. It seems true, that enjoying the presence of each other can actually lead to pleasure and purpose in life instead of frustration and boredom in life.

Sounds like a book that could be useful, even though I think that every couple has to find methods that work for them as opposed to following a code. Nice review.

Apparently there are three keys to a better marriage; love, polarity and personal development. It’s nice that the authors give tips on how to move your marriage to the next level. Diagrams, graphs and tables are also useful and would definitely help the reader better understand the information. My marriage is perfect so I don’t need martial advice :lol2: but this sounds like it might be useful to other couples. Thanks for the informative review.

While this seems like it is reviewed very highly, I do not like self-help books. Even more so, I hate books on marriage. I know that it may have some great tips, but my marriage is different from the next person and the next. I think that for advice on marriage to work, the person giving said advice needs to know you and your spouse.

I believe marriage is an institution and a relationship worth saving. Though unmarried, I've always thought of marriage as " 'til death do us part." I laud couples who stick to their vows through thick and thin. It would be wonderful if they could keep the pleasure, passion and purpose in the relationship.

May this book help make many committed couples happy.

The sample of this book alone really inspired me and I agree that the author's conversational tone of writing made me feel like I was getting great advice from a friend. I added Cracking the CODE to Marital Bliss to my shelves and I would love for my significant other to give this book a try too :D
