Dear 100 Hour Board,

What books on marriage/relationships would you recommend for someone who has been married for a while, and likes to read such things to make sure werf is doing werf's best to keep the marriage healthy?

- Not-so Newly Wed

A: Dear Not-so Newly Wed-

_Saving Your Marriage Before it Starts_ by the Parrotts is useful. As is _The Act of Marriage_, but for different reasons. I enjoyed Dr. Laura's books as well. They're more directed to women, but are still good.

-Grabthar's Hammer
A: Dear Not-so Newly Wed,

I enjoyed Dr. Laura's "The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands." Tells you what you should and should not do when it comes to your husband. I'm also halfway through "Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus," and that one has some useful info in it for anyone, married or not.

A: "And They Were Not Ashamed" is an AWESOME book.

Yes, it's mainly about sex but has a lot of great suggestions related to it and other parts of your relationship. Definitely good for married couples, too.
