Happy Couple Handbook Super Giveaway

How many of you parents have experienced a major change in your relationship with your spouse since having children? I know I certainly have. Each day is work, but a great relationship with my husband is well worth the effort. One of the books that has helped us the most is the Happy Couple Handbook by Dr. Carol Lundquist.

I received and reviewed this book in February, just a few weeks after my second child was born. You can imagine how our relationship had been in a bit of a slump, and this book helped tremendously. Today, we are still doing some of the things we learned in this book. You can see my full review here.

Now, I am giving you the chance to win your own copy of this book. I am so excited about all the marriages that are going to be helped through this giveaway and through this book, because we are giving away 10 copies of the Happy Couple Handbook!!! Yay!

These books are perfect for your own marriage or for a friend or relative with children. They would also make a great baby shower gift! In the future, if you want to find this book, it has been renamed, Happily Married With Kids: It's Not a Fairy Tale.  In early advance release, they found that The Happy Couple Hanbook just didn't resonate well with their market, and the subtitle "Marriage: How to Survive Parenting" was perceived as too negative. After testing several other possibilities, they decided that a slight variation of the title would be best. It is the same book, just with a new title.

Happily Married With Kids: It's Not A Fairy Tale

So who wants to win a copy of the Happy Couple Handbook? Remember, we are giving away 10 readers their own copy of this awesome book!
