Love at First Fight: 52 Story-Based Meditations for Married Couples by Carey and Dena Dyer is a devotional book on the relationships of married couples according to God's principles. The book is practical and fundamental, ensuring an educational read. The authors have shared a book taken from chapters of their lives. This stylistic approach makes the book real. A profound quote taken from the book is something astounding. "Be present for your spouse, physically and emotionally. Choose your battles. Live with each other’s idiosyncrasies. Laugh at yourself." — Bill and Judy Vriesema, married 33 years.

The authors summed up how to have an effective marriage in that one statement. It is so critical to pay attention to your spouse and to respect their differences. Every argument doesn't need to result in a battle. As the authors stated above, "Choose your battles." The book continues from there to educate, from a testimonial place, with nuggets of wisdom on the topic of maintaining or developing a God honored marriage. The writing is interactive and places readers in the driver's seat as they witness wisdom and knowledge on marriage while being educated.

Anyone who reads this book will walk away with gems of wisdom to create a more productive marriage. Throughout the book, the authors have also inserted tips from pros to help drive home the overall purpose of this book: to empower, educate, and equip readers with necessary wisdom for perfecting their marriages. I would not only recommend this book for married couples, but also for those who are seeking to become married.
