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." These few words completely change the way Seth looked at his relationship with his wife. His thoughts on the subject became an online phenomenon. Paired with beautiful images, they are now available as a book—the perfect gift for newlyweds, those who are celebrating an anniversary, or anyone who wants to learn how to make a relationship stronger.
This little book (size 7x7 and only 48 pages) is big in advice for the newly married and the old n' married alike. When Seth Smith started feeling concerned about marriage and feeling apprehensive about his future bride, (was she the right one, was he making a mistake, would she make him happy??) he asked his father for advice. Before his wedding his father told him this: "Seth, you are being selfish. Marriage isn't for you. You don't marry to make yourself happy...you marry to make someone else happy." Seth described this advice as shocking and revelatory. The more he looked at marriage the more he realized that his future bride really WAS the one for him and he knew that he wanted to do everything in his power to make her smile... Marriage wasn't for him...it was for her!
This book is adorable and would make such a good wedding shower gift! The advice given is so sweet and tender. The pictures are fun too!
