Item description for What I Wish I'd Known Before I Got Married: Keepin' It Real by James...

A family advocate gives readers advice on finances, sex, children, and dealing with the extended family. Noting that the apostle Paul exhorted older women to teach younger women how to be wives to their husbands, James offers a lifetime's wealth of wisdom for creating an unbreakable marriage relationship.

Publishers Description
Building a marriage is a lifelong endeavor for both men and women. Most marriage books cover the three C's--communication, compromise, and consideration -- but fail to address many issues critical to a healthy relationship. Family advocate Kay James calls these the "things I wish I had known before I got married": advice on finances, sex, children, and dealing with the extended family. Noting that the apostle Paul exhorted older women not to inspire or counsel younger women, but to teach them how to be wives to their husbands, Kay offers a lifetime's wealth of wisdom for creating an unbreakable marriage relationship.

Reviews - What do customers think about What I Wish I'd Known Before I Got Married?

The Usual Right-wing Drivel  Jul 9, 2008
Kay Coles James is a long-standing member of the extreme religious right. This book is 212 pages of the usual conservative claptrap and right-wing cliches.

Why would I spent $10 to read about how pornography is destroying people's lives? There is nothing new here. Perhaps Kay and her Focus on the Family cohorts should be focusing more on their own families.
You Have to Read This Book!  Jul 1, 2008
Kay Coles James proves once again what a great author she is and also shows what an outstanding sense of humor she has. I highly recommend this book to everyone!
A Great Gift for the Bride  Jun 27, 2008
This book is written by a woman, for a woman reader, and it's designed to help you prepare for a major life-shock called 'getting married.' The author writes with clarity and a lot of wisdom; I found myself going back and re-reading several passages.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I've bought copies for friends as they prepared to get married or remarried. It's a great book for those who have never been married before, but it's good also if you've been through a divorce and you're trying to start over.

The Things You Need To Know: Explored & Explained  Aug 11, 2007

Kay James is a powerful and gifted speaker, an accomplished and productive executive and consultant. In this book she explores the things people tend to learn "after" getting married, that would have been helpful to know "before."

A great book for premarital counseling; a great gift for a bride-to-be or an engaged woman or couple. Practical, realistic, and down-to-earth, the book explores topics like managing money (or the lack of it), raising children, and dealing with difficult relatives --- exactly the kinds of issues that every married couple is likely to face at one time or another.

Intended for women but useful for anyone, this easy-to-read book will help you think through the issues that affect satisfaction in marriage. By considering these things "before" marriage --- you'll be way ahead. Take the time to read this book and then buy several copies for friends.

Another book that hits home  Feb 14, 2002
This book is a good read, but the best book on singleness and marriage that leaves no stone unturned is Michelle Boasten's book, My Heart in His Hands ... a book for the Saved Single Sister who desires to be married, but hasn't been found by her husband.
