I'm grateful for your list which is helpful and pretty exhaustive. Have marked it for future reference.

9-Marks did a review of marriage books at some point in the last 5 years in their journal which might be worth consulting. We also enjoyed the Bentons (Don't they make a lovely couple), Ricucci (Love that lasts) and StAG used Dobson (Love for a lifetime) when we were doing marriage prep there nearly 10 years ago. Kostenberger has written helpfully and more broadly in God, Marriage and Family.

Christopher Ash's big book is great at setting out the big-picture purpose for marriage.
