10 Principles for a Happy Marriage by Selwyn Hughes

10 Principles for a Happy Marriage by Selwyn Hughes is a simple, but very helpful book. It outlines 10 ways on how married couples can make their marriage sweeter and one that is worthy in the eyes of God. The book is centered on the faith-life of the married couple and how it is reflected in their actions and words towards each other. The author constantly relates each of the principles to a verse from the Bible to further strengthen the importance of clinging to faith and keeping God at the center of the marriage.

Gary Chapman’s The Family You’ve Always Wanted aims to help people in achieving the ideal family–one that is stable and full of love. Similar to the first book, this also uses biblical passages and scripture to depict how families can improve their relationships with each other  and create a happy and healthy home.

Chapman gives five characteristics of a healthy family environment where each of the family members practice an attitude of service, and parents have a special intimate relationship with each other. From that bond stems a great love not only between the husband and wife, but  one that is also imbibed by their children and spreads all over the home.
