This gets asked a lot, but what relationship "self help" books would you recommend to someone?

I've asked this before, and got one or two good suggestions, but I get asked about these a lot and I can only think of one or two (Love Dare and Relationship Rescue).

What helped you or your SO?

  • Personally, The 5 Love Languages has been great, as well as The Act of Marriage.

  • I wouldn't recommended any. What makes them an expert at relationships? We have the 5 languages of love but so far it hasn't done crap. We get along better when we don't follow the books advise

  • NONE. How can someone else tell you how to fix your relationship when they know nothing about you? Everyone is different but mostly only you know what is and isn't best for you. You have to follow your instincts and do what you feel will make you happy

  • my recommendation is to either get counseling so you can get some objective help and both are participating or work on yourself...

  • There is no real book, in my opinion. You want to know the real key to any successful relationship? (And this goes for friendships, professional relationships, etc.) COMMUNICATION and HONESTY. These two factors have kept my husband and I from ever fighting or arguing. Sure, we disagree on some things, but we talk about it like mature adults instead of lashing out and screaming at each other.

  • i agree with tam i believe it's all about your own experience
    i don't even believe in marriage counselors, we had to see one for 6 months before we got married but the stuff they were telling us was to me common sense.
