Reviews - What do customers think about Curriculum Kit-Saving Your Marriage Before It Starts?
definitely worth reading Feb 19, 2007
My fiancee and I are in the process of using this book for our pre-marital counseling. It is good, it definitely has some good suggestions and is very thought provoking. Some of the exercises in the workbook are a bit rigid and unclear but overall I have found it to be great. Covers a variety of topics from communication to misunderstandings to intimacy. A good investment.
Great for both men and women Feb 8, 2007
This is a great book. Because its written by a couple, it is logical for both men and women. It gives you a very realistic of marriage and what to expect. It's not preachy, just practical.
