Rick & Bubba's Guide to the Almost Nearly Perfect Marriage

Rick and Bubba's Guide to the Almost Nearly Perfect Marriage

Rick Burgess and Bill "Bubba" Bussey
Thomas Nelson Publishing

Book Description

The only thing funnier than marriage is Rick and Bubba talkin' about it!

Rick and Bubba are at it again, and this time it is all about marriage. Addressing such topics as apologizing (The Ten Worst Ways to Say I’m Sorry), communication (Grunting Is Not a Language), date nights (Worst Date Nights in History), finances (I Thought You Paid the Gas Bill), and playing sports together (I Did Too Let You Win), the two "sexiest fat men alive" will have couples everywhere tied in knots.

In Review: As soon as I opened the package hubs flipped the book open. The first thing that caught his eye was the anniversary gift since we had just celebrated ours. He was thrilled to see that next year for our 20th anniversary we should go to a premier golf course! The more we flipped and read, the more we laughed. It was an instant A+ for both of us because in our eyes no marriage is complete without a lot of laughter! Of course, we also have decided that if you are married to Rick and Bubba your marriage also wouldn't be complete without a lot of laughter and whole LOT of patience. Their wives have to be saints to put up with all the nonsense they put them through. After all, you know your life is going to require patience when your husband asks, "Can we go back to the church for more cake?" on the way to your honeymoon!

However, it was refreshing to know that they also argue about some of the same things that it seems like every couple seems to argue about: Like how husbands can justify thousands and thousands of dollars in outdoor, hunting and high tech electronics, but argues that $265 spent at Walmart was a budget buster!

Putting aside all the laughter and picking, Rick and Bubba have a true and abiding love for their wives and waste no words in letting readers know that the good foundation of a marriage is God. Their words of advice about living with your spouse forever are not only refreshing, but incredibly wise.
