7 Tips for a Successful Marriage is a contemporary relationship guide to marital conflict and issues. Like many marriage help books, it offers sound marriage advice on how to solve problems that couples frequently encounter, supported by many examples of the author’s personal experience. The unique approach to the “opposites attract” theory offers both insight and humor in the best of the ” Mars. . . and Venus” tradition. The importance of choices, communication, and compromise is a recurrent theme throughout the book. It’s a “must have” for newlyweds and a ” wish I’d known” for veterans who not only want to survive as a couple, but want to achieve marriage success.
