Lisa Cassman’s Review

1112990193The Road Less Traveled: A Guide to a Positive Marriage
By: Lisa Cassman
Houston, Texas: Halo Publishing, 2012

The Road Less Traveled is an inspiring book for all married couples, whether you’re newly-wed or married for a long time. Marriage is a commitment and it could be a wonderful experience. But if you are broken and don’t know yourself very well, marriage can be difficult since the other person cannot fix you.

Lisa Cassman believes that in order to be happy in your marriage, you must understand who you are. This can take a bit of reflection and self-evaluation. But it is necessary because unless you’re happy and content with who you are, you won’t be happy in your marriage and your spouse will be a reflection of your unhappiness. Your spouse cannot make you whole unless you are already whole. Asking your spouse to make you happy can result in a very unhappy marriage.

In addition, Cassman’s book highlights how you can create a positive, happy, and fulfilling marriage. Spouses should lift each other up, complement one another, say I love you, be spontaneous, listen to one another, be passionate and a peacemaker, forgive, refrain from lying to each other, pray together, go for a long walk, have a romantic dinner, love each other unconditionally, and so on. All of these things will help to make your marriage rewarding and much happier. Cassman also asks you not to criticize your spouse and to believe in him or her. All of these things are doable.

This is a great book for these cultural times where divorce is so high. I believe that Cassman’s book can make your marriage happier and more fulfilling. All you have to do is open yourself up to her advice and try to incorporate one or more ideas into your life right this minute. Then watch as your marriage becomes much happier and fulfilling. Thank you Cassman for such a wonderful book!
