What books should people read before and after marriage?

Answer by Raakhee V. Menon:

Thank you for the A2A.

To everyone who’s looking to get married/looking for a boyfriend or girlfriend, there’s just one book I recommend all the time…

This won’t be of much help to the boys, but can be a real life-saver for all the girls out there. Women, keep this handy at all times 😀

And then there’s the very obvious and most famous choice…

This would be helpful all through the relationship, both before and after marriage. Because when we say something, a woman may not mean what a man may perceive, and a man may not think what the woman expects him to. The sooner we realize this, the better.

I read two marriage/relationship based non-fiction books by Shobhaa De.

They’re good engaging reads, but I would suggest that the reader ought not to put too much of what she has written into their personal life. It’s pretty easy to use her books as a guide book, it it can have very ghastly consequences. My advice…read them, take what you like, ignore the rest.

Another one that is very close to my heart is ‘The Prophet’ by Kahlil Gibran…

This is a beautiful work and works as a perfect guide to not just love between two individuals, but also about how to manage the home, your finances, and life in general. Don’t miss this one!

After marriage, I would definitely recommend one of them from the ‘Chicken Soup’ series…

This is guaranteed to make you both go all warm and fuzzy on the inside ^_^ And you can even set up your relationship goals too 🙂

Happy reading and all the very best! 🙂
