Book Review: Marriage Isn’t for You by Seth Adam Smith


Marriage isn't for you

Title: Marriage Isn’t For You: It’s for the One You Love 

Author: Seth Adam Smith

Publisher: Shadow Mountain

Released: May 6, 2014



What is the best wedding advice you ever received? For author Seth Adam Smith, it was the advice from his father who said, Marriage is not for you. It is about the person you marry. These few words completely changed the way Seth looked at his relationship with his wife-to-be. Because at that moment he realized that an expression of love is not about the person expressing it. Rather, it is about the person they choose to be with. It is about making the person you marry feel loved. Seth’s blog post on the subject was viewed by more than twenty-seven million people, and he has been featured on several national TV programs including The Today Show. Now released as a hardcover book, these sage words make the perfect gift for newly married couples, those who have been around the block a few times, or anyone who wants to learn how to make their relationships stronger.



This book comes from a blog post that Seth wrote last year.  Shadow Mountain has taken that post and turned it into a beautiful gift book.

I read and agreed with Seth’s blog post when it went viral last year. It’s a profound message and one I personally needed to be reminded of. Marriage Isn’t For You takes the words he wrote and pairs them with beautiful pictures to create a wonderful little book.

If you haven’t read the blog post yet you can see it on Seth’s site.  If you enjoy the message and would like to see it in book form then this is a book you should pick up.
