Any good relationship building books out there, besides the 5 Love Languages book? Sadly, that effing book is a trigger because OW was constantly telling WH that he spoke all her love languages. Glad they had such a great relationship.

We read "The marriage you have always dreamed of" by Gregg Smalley very early in R. It blew us away. Aside from SI it has had the biggest impact on our relationship. It does have a christian references but the principles and exercises are universal.
