Team Us - Marriage Together by Ashleigh Slater is a look at marriage in the twenty-first century with a lot of pop-culture references. Not my favorite marriage book, but a cute one for younger married couples.
My twenty-three year marriage doesn't have much to glean from this book that's aimed at a younger crowd. The advice is sound and the stories are fun. Each chapter has a discussion guide at the end for couples to get to know each other better.
I might even suggest this for engaged couples over married couples.
From the back cover:
When a couple promises, "I do," they agree to more than just a shared last name, a joint bank account, and no more dateless nights This husband and wife duo forms a new team. "Life together" becomes their mantra. Nothing can come between them. At least, that's the plan.
But then real life sets in. With it come disappointments and frustrations. If the couple isn't intentional in their day-to-day interactions, that one enthusiastic "we" can slowly revert to "you" and "me." Before long, the couple's left wondering what happened to their team spirit.
Team Us: Marriage Together offers couples practical ways to cultivate and strengthen unity in their marriages. Ashleigh Slater shares from her own marriage as she presents couples with realistic ideas on how to foster cooperation, deepen commitment, and exercise grace on a daily basis.
