A frank and funny look at what to do when together is too close
Two’s company, especially for those who love each other. So what happens when—due to retirement, working from home, or even running a business together—spouses find that being in the same space all the time is awkward, complex, annoying, and just plain challenging? How can partners coexist without co-exhausting each other?
Cynthia Ruchti and Becky Melby know all too well how adjusting to a new, all-the-time closeness can cause the bliss of marriage to form blisters. Drawing from their experiences, and from men and women across the country in the same situation, the authors take a deep breath and dive into the root causes. They dig into what God’s Word has to say, and they offer practical tips for learning the spiritual, emotional, relational, and even physical steps that can help readers replace irritation with peace.
For any couple who wants their home to be a refuge of peace and serenity for all—not just themselves—and who wants to know they aren't alone in the mental and physical claustrophobia of too much togetherness, Spouse in the House is a vulnerable, charming, and pragmatic breath of hope.

My thoughts: I have thought what it will be like when, in what feels like the distant future, my children are grown and it's just my husband and I rattling around in the house. This book is a wonderful guide for those who are in that position! I enjoyed the insight, wisdom, and humor that both authors bring with this book. This is an excellent book to pick up and enjoy for those in retirement or with it on the horizon.
I received this book from Celebrate Lit. This is my honest review.
