Do you and your love partner make daily efforts to strengthen and improve your relationship?
If not, you might want to pay attention because the quality of your love relationship determines your overall happiness and even your health.
All couples, whether married or dating, straight or gay, should consciously take action to keep their relationship strong and healthy for the long haul.
One valuable way to do this is by reading books for couples or marriage books offering concrete steps to enhance the love, trust, respect, and intimacy between you.
How Do Couples Read Together?
It's best if you and your partner read these books together as a couple, but even if one partner doesn't participate, the other can share and model some of the positive relationship skills he or she is learning.
There are several ways you and your partner can enjoy couple books together to make the most of the strategies.
- Get two copies of the books, and determine a certain number of pages or chapters you'll both read each week.
- Have one copy of the book, and take turns reading out loud to each other from the book .
- Have one copy of the book and pass it back and forth each day so you both read a chapter or certain number of pages.
- Listen to the audio version of the book together.
Once you've both read (or listened to) the chapters or pages, sit down together to discuss what you've learned and how you can apply the lessons to your relationship.
Remember, even the best books on marriage and relationships aren't much use if you don't take action on what you're learning.
