Essential Questions for Couples Planning to Marry Jul 11, 2003
Jon Dewey's "Before You Marry" is filled with many of the essential questions that any couple intending to marry must answer. This book is less a "how-to" than a workbook--it spends little effort advising couples to focus on or avoid certain things, but rather poses many questions about the essential issues involved in marriage.
The large issues such as definitions of love and marriage and views on finances and spending are addressed as are everyday details that couples fight about, such as where they like to eat and what traditions couples wish to follow at important holidays and family events.
The book asks couples to consider whether both partners will work and how the housework will be divided. Other critical issues addressed at length are perceptions of familial roles and such details of child-rearing as what times are appropriate for curfew, penalties for breaking rules, etc. Also provided is a brief guide for step-parenting and a sample planner for a household budget.
Rather than attempting to instuct, "Before You Marry" asks questions which are meant to lead to discussion about many of the issues, large and small, that couples tend to argue about or divorce over--questions that many couples neglect to ask while courting one another and later wish they had. I highly recommend this book for any couple thinking of long-term committment.
