    1. I should have known there were going to be problems with this book the moment I saw that The Nest had published it.The Nest - and its affiliate sites The Knot and The Bump - are notoriously problematic. They are incredibly classist (I mean, we can all afford the latest baby gadgets and at least a one-week vacation away from home each year, right?!) and there is a lot of subtle racism that goes on. With those large issues in mind, I was not surprised to see a lot of awful advice given and complet [...]

    2. This would make a great shower gift. It's smartly written and laid out, and full of practical advice for newlywed couples.

    3. Got from library. No time to read it. Check it out again and order it._____________________________________________________This book is filled with advice, detailed to-dos, checklists, quizzes, and worksheets that are sure to spark conversations, fix problems, and get your new life together on track and off to a good start.

    4. I like how the book is set up into different chapters (i.e. 'money', 'home', 'friends and fun') and that each chapter starts with quiz/probing questions that you can ask your mate (though I don't think my husband enjoyed answering the questions as much as I did). As with any general book about marriage, there were some topics that were a big hit and other topics that had pretty much no relevance to me and my hubbie. I was disappointed with the chapter on money, I think that the author made the a [...]

    5. This book was surprisingly good. I was expecting a froo froo discussion of tips for married folk (most of which are common sense and we already know). Instead this was a cogent summary of the main areas that cause marital distress (money, sex, living together, friendships, in-laws, kids) plus suggestions for the process of communication. While there are parts that have little to no relevance for us (in-laws, sex), there were plenty of good ideas in the other sections to make up for it. And if no [...]

    6. This was a cute and informative book. I still have not figured out if this is based on 'the Nest" website or vice versa. Either way it was a fun way to read through some of the topics from the website. Since I got married at 39 after being together for 8 years I'm not starting from scratch so to speak. A lot of this information felt it was geared to maybe the younger couples. Although, working on your relationship and home should never be something you stop doing. I appreciated how helpful it wo [...]

    7. I got this mainly for the financial section, which is moderately helpful. It gives the very basics of what should be on your radar, so you can then find resources that go more in depth. Each chapter also has an inane quiz full of dated references. I did find the lists of questions at the start of chapters to be somewhat good for gauging where each person is coming from on various issues. Pretty much, this book was exactly what I thought it would be: web content. Definitely borrow, unless you pla [...]

    8. I've just started reading this book but I love it. It definitely explains all the new experiences that you are going through and that they are normal and you are not along. Marriage does bring about a life change, good, nevertheless change is always different and this just helps pave the path.It talks about everything from to merge or not merge bank accounts, to buying your first home together, your sex life, your in-laws, having children, etceverything you experience for the first time with you [...]

This is the book!This book will literally "Save" Your Marriage, meaning, less arguments with each other, no more confusion, more time consuming, etcThis book was inspired by members of the REAL couples website "theknot" with the help of it's members this book has everything from money management to how to handle your mother in law ! W H A T B O O K H A S T H A T !?this one of course!MUST BUY FOR ENGAGED/NEWLY WEDS & [...]

    10. Lots of tips, hints and insight for a couple. Personally I think most of the advice/conversations/etc is stuff that should occur before a couple is married. Lots of worksheets and info sheets in the back to fill out, my favorite one is the "Our Wish List" form just a place to list the things that I, he, and we want to accomplish. You could make a list each year and see which goals have been met and which ones havent been. Then make a new list based on where you are for the next year together. Ov [...]

    11. ha, i read this one on my honeymoon too. some of it was cheesy and dawson and i just read the quizzes and stuff to laugh but some of it was really helpful- just the technical parts of becoming a married couple, name change, check lists for things in the beginning etiquette type things. there is a nice part in the back that gets you to list out all of each others important information incase of anything, info i hadn't even thought about. was a good book though could have had more to it.

    12. Interesting concept for a book. Based on American financial items, housing etc - so not totally working for a Canadian like me, but the main concepts still get through. I did take a few thing away from this book, but mostly since we already lived together before getting married we have a lot of the items they talk about in place and working smoothly. :) I would suggest this book for a couple who has not lived together prior to getting married.

    13. I think I would have found this book more helpful/useful if I was a younger newlywed. I would recommmend this book to a 20 or even 30-something newlywed. The 40-something that I am already knew or had thought of most of the information in the book. That said, I thought it was a cute book and written in a nice, informal manner. I wouldn't hesitate to buy this book for a young bride (or groom) to be. The charts/forms at the end could be a great tool for some couples.

    14. You don't need marriage counseling! Read this! We're all crazy in our own ways, and rather than trying to make your marriage fit into a neat little box, this book emphasizes understanding you and your partner's differences. A real-world, no B.S. way of dealing with everything from finances, housework, arguing, shady pasts, to getting along with in-laws. This book applies not only to newlywedsl married couples could benefit from this!

    15. A must have for all newlyweds, and the not-so-newly weds. This covers everything from finances and love to wills and baby talk.I've been reading this for a couple years now, lol. I've been stuck on the Living Will section for awhile now. Maybe that's why I'm stuck - it's such a morbid subject!

    16. Lots of good relationship advise: from how to work out and talk about finances to keeping romance alive to initiating discussions on how to raise babies. Interesting read, gets the brain working on some issues you might not have thought to discuss.

    17. Must read for any newlyweds, even those who have lived together or dated for years. Full of hints, tips, advice and laughs.

    18. got this right after I got married, and I wasn't disappointed, and the little quizzes are cute for you and your husband to do :)

    19. Most of this information is common sense. But for any of you Susie Homemakers or soon-to-be's who can't get it together this is an excellent book which tells you everything up front. I liked it!

    20. Took some review advice on and read through this before being a newly wed. Some very helpful discussion topics!

    21. This book started interesting, but after the first few chapters was kind of difficult to read. I ended up skimming through most of the chapters.

    22. This has some great advice, ideas, etc. Most of it you can read online on their webpage. But I still have been enjoying it.

    23. This book helped me figure out all the hoops I had to jump through to change my name, and its also nice that it offers real couples accounts of the changes that happen after you get married.

    24. So far I'm loving this book! It has so much helpful information, as a newly-wed 6 months into marriage I'm really soaking up all the tips!

    25. This is a good book for people who are getting married to read. It talks about things life after the wedding day.
