The core idea of THE TEN-MINUTE MARRIAGE PRINCIPLE --- that you can change your marriage in 10 minutes a day --- may strike some as improbably optimistic. But prolific author and executive director of the Heart to Heart Counseling Center Douglas Weiss believes it's possible. "If you're going to be married, have a great marriage! Let me show you how."

Weiss, the host of TBN's "Winning @ Marriage" television game show (think "The Newlywed Game"), bases his book on "intimacy workouts," which he compares to physical workouts necessary to maintain good health. The exercises are deceptively simple. Pray out loud together. Look into each other's eyes (no, I'm not kidding!). Recall positive memories together. Tell each other what you are grateful for. Tell each other what you learned that day. "As the intimacy core muscles are strengthened daily, you can experience incredible closeness and endurance to run this marathon we call marriage."

He spells everything out for readers, right down to suggesting the couple write in when they will begin the exercises, at what time of day and the three exercises they will start with. He suggests planning awards, such as a night at a Bed and Breakfast, as incentive for sticking with the exercises.

Although the "ten minutes" principle is referred to throughout the book, it's actually a small portion of the text. After outlining the exercises, Weiss follows up with chapters that are intended to help couples in areas such as motivation, decision-making, fighting, sex and intimacy issues, problems from an abusive past, unforgiveness, money, forgetting to "date" and building a support network. The various chapters also emphasize faith, going to church and keeping God at the center of a marriage.

Ordered this at my wife's request. Worth a read, and includes some helpful recommendations and exercises. We tried them on a whim, and were surprised at how effective they were, in only minutes a day. Excellent book.

It is easy to get sucked into all the things that you need to do after marriage. For me as kids have come and crazy house/car maintenance has tried to take over my life, I have found this book very helpful for making sure my wife and I spend some time each day growing in our relationship.
