Marital Advice to my Grandson Joel by Peter Davidson

Marital Advice to my Grandson Joel by Peter Davidson

The moment Peter Davidson knew his grandson was getting married he wanted to be able to pass down years of hard earned wisdom. Ensure that Joel has a successful marriage and the upper hand when it comes to all the tricks on how to make that happen.

What was meant to be some simple notes of advice quickly turned into a book.

Peter has divided the book into many meaningful sections for not only Joel but future students looking to hone their marriage skills, understand better their partners for life, and maybe sidestep unnecessary failures.

In these pages are personal stories from Peter, friends, family, and plain observations that will have you laughing, shaking your head, and acknowledging the truth to the words.

My advice? Pick up a couple paperback copies to have around for those times when you’re invited to a wedding, bachelorette/bachelor party, etc.
