Publisher's Summary

In a marketplace full of relationship books that range from clinical to sensational, Ramona Zabriskie's Wife for Life: The Power to Succeed in Marriage stands out for its sympathetic, elegant wisdom. Written in a warm, feminine tone, this book masterfully interlaces authoritative voices with personal stories from the author's 37-year marriage as well as her motivational speaking and mentoring career.
Nearly divorced two years after her own wedding, the author has become an advocate and exemplar of marital success for women who want to believe. Her compassion and know-how, uniquely presented in three parts - "Why You Both Want a Grand", "Lifelong Marriage", "How to Avoid Becoming a Dream Breaker, and What to Do to Make Dreams Come True" - is proving transformative. Inspired by new perspective, women from every stage of life and marital status are gaining the skills, confidence, and long-term vision needed to affect their own happiness as well as the ultimate outcome of their marriage. Wife for Life has helped women turn troubled marriages around, transform good marriages into great ones, and grow great marriages into grand empires of love that can last forever.

Any additional comments?

First of all, I am not George writing this review, I am his wife for life. We have one Audible account as a couple and it is in his name. I, like some of the other listeners, initially found the author's enthusiastic performance of her work annoying. However I did listen to the entire book, because it contains such valuable information and is so well written. I have since listened a second and now multiple times, and will continue to listen to this work until the principles presented in it become second nature to me. Also, as a result of getting to know Ramona as a student in her Wife for Life University, I realize that, first of all, that is who Ramona is; she is a woman who is full of life, encouragement, optimism and enthusiasm, and secondly that it was my own lack of these qualities and my cynicism that made the narration annoying especially since my first marriage was not successful. As I studied and implemented the information, Ramona presents, my attitude and my life has changed and I just LOVE listening to this book. It is like having a mentor and friend sitting with me cheering me on and encouraging me. I LOVE Wife for Life and this audio recording of it. In fact, now, hearing Ramona read her book is even better than reading the book myself (I also have the Kindle version of this book). I am an auditory person and I learn while listening. Thank you Ramona for the hours that it took to record this for me and others like me and to Dale (her husband) for the wonderful job you did engineering this work. I will always be forever grateful and one of your biggest fans. You have changed my life and my new marriage forever as well as helping me let go of all the guilt I carried from my failed first marriage. Thank you for sharing your life's work so that we may have the kind of marriage and lives and relationships that make living joyous, fulfilling and GRAND!!!.

LOVED IT! Really glad I am now working to make my marriage GRAND! I have had the book for a year now but never made time to read it. I LOVE AUDIO BOOKS!

Brilliant

My relationship has changed whilst reading and is strong. I look forward instead of gut reaching failure which was the case when I started to listen to this book with 2 & 4 year olds boys playing super heroes & stopping injuries & wiping tears. I needed this book I am starting it again right away.
