My Thoughts:

I also love reading books from the Chicken Soup for the Soul series.  Out of the past few I have read, I have to say I enjoyed this one the most.  I don't know about you, but after having two children back to back, my husband and I have found it a challenge to make time for us.  As a result, we have had to work extra hard in keeping our relationship strong.  After reading through a dozen stories in this book, I felt comfort in knowing that others have dealt with some of the issues we have, as well as enjoyed reading about how others use unique ways to keep their relationships fresh.  Marriage, like anything else, needs to be worked on constantly.  The moment you think you don't have to put effort into it, usually means there is a problem.  

I have flagged a few inspirational stories in this book, which I shared with my husband.  Usually he doesn't read these types of books, but he made an exception, as I told him they would benefit our relationship.  And, after reading them, I was surprised to find out that he read the entire book.  We have been discussing some of what we have read and applied some of the techniques other spoke about, in improving our lines of communication and marriage as a whole.

If you are newly married, married for years, or even in a long-term relationship, this book is worth picking up and reading.  You will laugh and feel inspired as you read through the 101 stories about marriage and relationships, that make up this recent release in the Chicken Soup for the Soul series.
