#3 The Art of Loving

There are few people who can articulate love quite like Erich Fromm, which is what makes The Art of Loving the key to maintaining a strong and healthy marriage. Fromm tastefully defines love and what it takes to achieve a loving relationship by relying on his celebrated experience as a psychologist and psychoanalyst.

What really sets this book apart from others is that he addresses many kinds of love, including brotherly, erotic, spiritual, and romantic. But The Art of Loving is not just another self-help book on relationships; Fromm’s masterpiece is a must-read for anyone who wants to develop their emotions and tap into a more meaningful existence.

#6 Glad to Be Dad: A Call to Fatherhood

I don't mean to assume that all couples will become parents. Most will, of course. But beyond that, Glad to Be Dad centers on the relationship between spouses, which is, after all, so critical in so many lives. (It even includes a chapter for parents called The Smoking Ruins of Your Sexual/Romantic Life which actually isn't as dismal as it may sound.
