This has been a fabulous guide for my fiance and me as we've been working through having intentional and meaningful conversations through our engagement. It's kept us from only talking about the surface or the wedding. We've loved getting to know each other on a deeper level and having a guide to help us invest in one another. It's definitely something we'll return to often, even after the wedding to continue to help us understand each other.
At this point (12/3/13) my fiancée and I haven't finished yet, but what we have read has been fantastic. Great conversations have been sparked, and realizing especially methods of communication and ways to love one another in that. It's been great to dive into, and I definitely recommend it if you're a pastor looking for a good book to counsel by, or a couple looking to purchase something to walk through before or even during marriage.
My boyfriend, then fiance, now husband and I really enjoyed reading through this book before we got married. Although we had discussed many of the topics presented already, we liked the fact that this book outlined all the major areas when it comes to communication in marriage. We have used it since we have gotten married as well, to make sure we're staying on track or when we feel we could be communicating better to make sure we are using best practices. This is a great one to add to your library!
So far a great book for a new couple!
Lots of little questionaires for you and your partner to walk through together. Helps you see that even if you agree on an item- you might agree for different reasons and that matters- but that means that you'll disagree for thos same reasons later on!
Really good conversation over dinner that doesn't involve work/school/tv/weather/ or the in-laws ! :)
This is a great book for recently engaged couples to work through. Ideally each person would work on a section alone, then the couple would come together on a date to discuss their answers. I recommend this as a part of Christian pre-marital counseling.
This handbook is smaller than I imagined (stapled spine, very thin), but contains information and exercises that completely exceed my expectations! This concise book has excellent readings, as well as questions to lead discussions. It ties in Christianity and is truly a gift to any couple that is trying to build their relationship on Christ. I noticed a reviewing saying that this was better for new couples, but I honestly think It is most appropriate for a couple who is engaged/looking to become engaged. I strongly recommend this handbook for anyone who wants to become closer and build a solid foundation before making the commitment of a lifetime.
If you or someone you love is getting married, buy two copies of this book and complete a section independently. Then meet to read through and share your answers. Then repeat until the handbook is complete. This is a tremendous way to align expectations and prepare for a permanent marriage!
