Book Review ~ The 10 Commandments of Marriage by Ed Young ~ 7/23/2021


Title:  The 10 Commandments of Marriage by Ed Young
Pages:  216
Date Published:  October 1, 2014
Publisher:  Moody Publishers


Marriage is God's idea. He planned it. He designed it. And if you follow His blueprint, it will be more rewarding, more loving, more exciting than you ever imagined.

In 10 Commandments of Marriage, Dr. Ed Young shares the “thou shalts” and the “thou shalt nots” of successful relationships—straight from the pages of God's Word. Long-married couples will find love-building precepts that will revive a failing marriage and make a great relationship even better. Soon-to-be-marrieds will discover what marriage is all about and gain priceless insights into starting on solid ground.

In words that are profound, often humorous, but always biblical, Dr. Young draws from decades of counseling couples to provide 10 commandments for a lifelong marriage that sizzles. God wants your marriage to be nothing short of incredible. And it could begin with this amazing book.
My Thoughts:
I can't believe that I'm finally writing a Book Review.  The last one I wrote was in March.  I should have known that a non-fiction read would be the way to break my reading block/slump.

This book caught my eye at the store because (as you might know already) my daughter will be getting married in 3 short weeks!!  (Yikes!)  All things wedding and marriage have been on my mind lately.  I purchased the book after reading the blurb on the back of the book and seeing just what the "10 Commandments of Marriage" were.  I love that they were listed plainly for all to see before buying the book.

Originally, I thought the book would be a great gift for Kaylee and Shawn in their soon-to-be married life.  I wanted to read it first to make sure I was gifting good, Biblical reading material.  I will be giving this book to them but I might have to buy another copy to keep for myself!

As you might be guessing, I loved this book!  I have never read anything by this author before, but his writing style is so easy to read and entertaining as well as informative.

Some of my favorite chapters were:

"Thou Shalt Be Selfless"
"Thou Shalt Continually Communicate"
"Thou Shalt Romance the Home

I easily could have listed all 10 chapters because they were ALL so very good.

I highly recommend this book to those engaged, young in marriage and those who have been married for YEARS.  I wish my husband were the reading type so we could read it together!

I purchased this book at Wal-Mart.

Onto the next book!
