OK, I'm not a first-timer at marriage - in fact, after two LDS marriages and divorces, I wasn't real sure I was interested in trying again. Then I heard about this book from a friend. She had loved this book as a guideline for conversations with a potential partner following many years as a divorced parent. Before I even saw it, I was telling others who were nervous about choosing a partner about it. I found it on line, read the reviews, and purchased it to review it for myself. (One review was pretty uncomplimentary.) I like the 'workbook' format - short concept statements with a number of related questions and spaces to start with your answers. While some of the questions are worded in such a way as to suggest the 'right' answer or a simple yes/no response, a thoughtful reader (or companionship) can use even these for a take off place for self-exploration and discovery discussion. It found it to very oriented around some concepts that are not familiar to those who don't know LDS Church doctrine, so I have felt it necessary to warn my 'gentile' friends about that - and invite them to learn more about them, of course! But I still tell them to use the book to guide their own searches into compatability and potential companionship.
And no - I'm not going to tell you that this book was the beginning of a wonderful new relationship for me. I will say that, with this book in my library, I feel that I have a tool that will support me well when and if I am in the position of considering another try at building an eternal companionship.
Having been divorced, I am VERY skeptical of marriage. My boyfriend recently started talking about the "M" word and I panicked I researched online for help to know what to do. I got this book for myself and my partner. I will not be agreeing to marriage until we have both answered every question and have read the others answers.

This provided a lot of great questions to consider and discuss with your significant other but I felt several questions were similar and unnecessary. Overall, it was a good book to make sure you are compatible (in all aspects of life) with the one you are considering marrying.
There are some good questions in here, but so many are repeats or are worded in a manner that can be offensive. My fiance and I stopped going through it. It was just annoying us.
Great book with wonderful questions. I would not have thought to ask even half these questions but most of them sparked great, sometimes deep, conversations. Occasionally, we would even come up with a question of our own.
My wife and I read this book together before we got married. It was useful, but open and effective communication with each other is even more effective.
It was slightly used which i expected. great book and great questions. me and my fiancee learned a lot about each other while 6 months of dating and this book brought up a lot of great topics. I would recommend it to anyone:)
My bishop was big on full disclosure, so before my husband and I got married, we purchased this book. We would go through it on dates, driving in the car, etc. There are some good questions, but it could go deeper. Based on your past, you would definitely have more follow up questions than what this book provides, but hopefully those are common sense and you aren't only asking the questions in this book. But it is a good starter to get to know your future spouse. I recommend it.
