What is the best wedding advice you ever received? For author Seth Adam Smith, it was the advice from his father who said, Marriage is not for you. It is about the person you marry. These few words completely changed the way Seth looked at his relationship with his wife-to-be. Because at that moment he realized that an expression of love is not about the person expressing it. Rather, it is about the person they choose to be with. It is about making the person you marry feel loved. Seth's blog post on the subject was viewed by more than twenty-seven million people, and he has been featured on several national TV programs including The Today Show. Now released as a hardcover book, these sage words make the perfect gift for newly married couples, those who have been around the block a few times, or anyone who wants to learn how to make their relationships stronger.

I'm one of the 30 million who saw this on cyberspace.  A few of my Facebook friends had shared the link to the story.  The headline caught my eye, "Having been married only a year and a half, I’ve recently come to the conclusion that marriage isn’t for me", so I clicked to read why (original here).  After reading the article, I found it to be sweet and had a great advice.  That same tender, resonating counsel is now in this book with a few changes (big ones: introduction removed and Walmart philosophy reworded). 

Set in beautiful fonts and lovely wedding themed photographs, this book makes for an excellent gift for couples. It serves as a wonderful reminder of a principle that will likely help to make a successful relationship. I agree, so I'm giving a copy to my cousin that's getting married this Friday. I think the sound guidance is a good one to adapt in their journey together. Hence, this is a meaningful book to give for a couple you care about, including your own! 

I do have a suggestion for the publisher to consider. The book cover looks good in print but it shows up pale and uninteresting on the Web. I know, “Don’t judge a book by its cover”, but people do. I do sometimes and this one didn’t pop for me, particularly on cyberspace.
