Reviews - What do customers think about Beginning Your Marriage?
Good advice from a book Mar 9, 2006
I read this one cover to cover in record time. It had some excellent points to discuss before marriage that may help to avoid serious problems later. The author is objective, open minded, and knowledgeable. After reading this, you might find the person with the solution to your problem is in the mirror.
Building the Foundation for a Successful Marriage Dec 26, 2000
My friend who was wed in Las Vegas after a two-week whirlwind courtship recommended this book to me before I was married. Needless to say her marriage did not last, but she knew this book could help my future husband and I discuss the things that she and her husband did not. Make sure you get your partner to read at least parts of the book if not the whole thing so they have a better understand how serious the discussion needs to be, because their perspective is really critical.
This book isn't just for Catholics. It applies to all faiths and even has a chapter on interfaith marriages and the discourse that need to take place to help buffer some of the obstacles to come.
This book reads very quickly and is filled with insight. It is a must for any couple to be married, especially if you do not plan on any other marriage preparation.
