    "I'm not a religious person, and I'm not romantic. This book was fairly boring trying to manipulate the reader into changing their mind into the "Christian" way. It practically says that you shouldn't date or have sex because it's bad, a pretty conservative point of view. Don't recommend."

    "I read the first few chapters of The 8 Reasons for Divorce before I felt too burned out to continue. The content of the book is mostly inspirational pablum, designed to encourage readers to appreciate the archaic and inhumane institution of marriage."

    "This is a pretty interesting book and it was a very in depth look into Christianity and marriage as a whole, it explores a lot of different areas but I would say that I really read this a lot to get a better grasp on how marriage works and the in depth looks into it. It's a very good book!"

    "I've been on the hunt for the best books about marriage, and I got this search result. At first I was intrigued based on the title, only to discover after reading the description that The Bride in this case refers to Black Mamba from the Kill Bill movies. Needless to say, this is not at all what I was looking for."
