Advice on Advice

I am attempting to do a little research for one of my works in progress and I need a little help. I’m wondering two things:
   1. What is the best relationship advice book you have ever read?
   2. What is the best relationship advice you have ever been given/have to give?
Feel free to answer either/both/none of the questions, but any comments would be much much much appreciated.

One of my cousins sent me "His Needs, Her Needs" after we got married and it was a pretty decent book. It's mostly targeted to the married/with children crowd, though.

The best relationship advice I ever got was being asked if I felt comfortable with Adam. If I felt safe. I said yes, being with him was easy. I felt like I could be myself and I felt like loving him was the easiest thing I ever did.

That would probably be the advice I'd have to give to people looking for "the one." That being with them feels natural, it feels comfortable.

For All Eternity by Dr. John L Lund. I love that book! It really captures the difference between men and women and has really great ideas for overcoming and embracing those differences. I reccomend it.

Sorry to admit this, but the only one I've ever read is "Men are From Mars, Women are From Venus" and I only read that because (this is the truth) we were asked to teach a marriage class using this as the text! But it really made us feel "normal" and hit the nail on the head in a lot of ways. I think my best received advice was to keep the Lord as the center of our relationship--you can't go wrong with that. Other than that, I would say BE PATIENT with each other and treat each other with love and respect at all times. I was going to say, "treat each other as you would want to be treated" but I just realized that would not be very good advice, since men are after all from Mars and we are from Venus.... :)

One of the best relationship books I have read is called "The Five Love Languages" by Gary Chapman. "Divorceless Marriage" by Randy Bott is pretty good too.

Well lets be honest, the only marriage books I've read were my text books at school :) However, I have been given some great advice. I was told when I got married that when Bret and I get in arguments not to talk about it with friends and family, because then they only hear the bad stuff and aren't there when we makeup/work it out and they get a bad opinion of my husband. Does that makes sense? Anyway, interesting research you're doing
