A Decision to Love contains everything a couple needs to know about the sacrament of marriage and how to prepare for it, including the wedding ceremony itself. This wonderful resource includes the following: 1. The readings for the Rite of Marriage come from the official Lectionary for Mass in the U.S. 2. The language is thoroughly modern - like the couples you are preparing! Attention is paid to the place of technology and the speed of modern life. 3. All statistics are accurate and helpful. 4. A realistic view of society as we live in it today in the American church is clear and pervasive. Couples preparing with this resource will be ready to face modern life with all its gifts and challenges. 5. The Resources are all current and available. This program is easy to use and very popular with parish leaders and couples who are working with engaged couples. It is an outstanding educational and enrichment program, filled with valuable information about the sacrament plus questions to share, case studies to discuss, and issues to digest. Each chapter has "Relationship Checks" that encourage couples to examine their feelings on the topics of communication, family origins, sexuality, children, finances, and spirituality. Each chapter also contains "Issues for Special Focus" geared toward older couples, couples remarrying, or couples with children, and "Highlight" boxes that focus on contemporary topics like interfaith marriage, remarriage, dual-career couples, and pre-nuptial agreements. The companion 168-page Leader's Guide contains essential information about organizing a marriage prep program plus hands-on guidance for leading sessions. It also contains a complete Wedding Liturgy Planner to help engaged couples plan their wedding ceremony. This acclaimed marriage preparation program combines contemporary topics with spiritual, psychological, and theological principles to ground and prepare Catholic couples for a lifetime commitment to one another.

Reviews - What do customers think about A Decision to Love: A Marriage Preparation Program : Couple's Book (Best in Marriage and Baptism Preparation)?

Fr. Carroll Reviews A Decision to Love  Jan 5, 2007
I would give five stars to the authors John and Susan Midgley. The chapters are very short and easy to read and very much to the point. The His and Hers questions pages do stimulate easy discussion between couples and I have had many positive remarks from my wedding couples. I describe this workbook as an aid to communications which does allow the couple to learn more about each other in a painless way. I use this book because I do not require a marriage prep course and because many people do not want to or cannot for one reason or another attend Pre-Cana meetings. I hope this book is restocked since I will probably be ordering a dozen copies in the near future. If your marrying or just married or participating in a pre-marriage program, this book will augment any other materials nicely.
Great pre-marriage workbook  Apr 24, 2004
This book was required for the pre-marriage program my husband and I took prior to our marriage. Although many of the questions in this book are those which you talk about prior to marriage, some were presented in ways we had never looked at before. The book is divided into a number of sections. Each section has a write up, as well as a his and her page to fill out and discuss. There is then general questions to discuss with each other and within the pre-marriage group. We spent a lot of time talking about the topics brought up in the book. Although we did not learn much more than we already knew, the discussions helped to reinforce our choice to get married. I would highly recommend this book to any couple whether engaged or married.
