What is the best wedding advice you ever received? For author Seth Adam Smith, it was the advice from his father who said, "Marriage is not for you. It is about the person you marry." These few words completely changed the way Seth looked at his relationship with his wife-to-be. Because at that moment he realized that an expression of love is not about the person expressing it. Rather, it is about the person they choose to be with. It is about making the person you marry feel loved.
Seth's blog post on the subject was viewed by more than thirty million people, and he has been featured on several national TV programs including "The Today Show." Now released as a hardcover book, these sage words make the perfect gift for newly married couples, those who have been around the block a few times, or anyone who wants to learn how to make their relationships stronger.

"What is the best marriage advice you ever received? For author Seth Adam Smith, it was the advice from his father, who said, "Marriage isn't for you. It's about the person you marry."" And that advice goes for all of us! The book is BEAUTIFULLY put together! FUN pictures! AMAZING story of his love for his wife, his fears and anxieties, his wife's love for him that brought him back to a selfless, happier marriage. I LOVED this thought: "Marriage isn't for yourself~ you're marrying for a family. Not just for the in-laws and all of that nonsense, but for your FUTURE CHILDREN." PERFECT to get for yourself or for a wedding gift or for a anniversary gift. The advice in this book will make ANY relationship stronger!show more
