23 Books You Need To Read Before You Get Married

21. Love & Respect by Dr. Emerson Eggerichs

Love & Respect by Dr. Emerson Eggerichs

“This book was recommended to us by a marriage counselor we were seeing during a rough patch. It totally changed the way we view each other’s needs, and how we argue. The ‘crazy cycle’ he discusses really opened our eyes on how to avoid those pointless fights with no resolutions. We keep that in mind now whenever we get frustrated or argue, and when we make decisions.”

22. The Art of Loving by Erich Fromm

“I read it in sociology class in junior college and it’s informed my adult relationships tremendously and positively, including my eight-year marriage.”

23. I Do, But I Don’t by Kamy Wicoff

I Do, But I Don’t by Kamy Wicoff

“It’s a great book about the reasons behind the traditions of marriage, and how those ideas and traditions are outdated. It really helped me understand that a big, white wedding had nothing to do with how good your marriage will be, and that perhaps instead of focusing on what kind of party I was going to throw, and how much money I could spend, what I really needed to focus on was making my relationship and marriage stronger.”
