Book Review:15-Minute Marriage Makeover

15-Minute Marriage Makeover – by Dustin Riechmann

This is a short, 100-page book on how to prioritize your marriage 15 minutes a day in a way that brings huge rewards. It’s perfect for couples in the Maintenance Stage of the Relationship Cycle. After a couple makes a lifetime commitment to each other, they slowly fall into a pattern of living their separate lives and forgot to reconnect with each other in meaningful ways. Even sex can become routine and no longer feel as satisfying as it once was. This book gives you focused assignments of how to spend your daily 15 minutes to reconnect with each other in a way that will have effects lasting far longer than the 15 minutes invested. It reminds people of why they chose to make their commitment in the first place. It helps them remember how important their relationship is. Doing the exercises Riechmann recommends rekindles the deep love you feel for your spouse today, that may have become a distant memory. The flame is still alive . . . it just needs fanning for about 15 minutes a day. Wouldn’t that be worth it?
