Reviews - What do customers think about Starting Your Marriage Right?
Great for pre-marrieds, too Nov 9, 2006
I think this is an excellent book to go over with your fiance as well as your spouse (though the end of chapter activities only work for marrieds). It covers pretty much every topic that I could possibly dream up, and more. The Rainey's have a lot of marriage experience, and although I am not through the whole book yet, they offer great practical advice.
Read it together and read it today!!! Jun 12, 2006
I would completely disregard comments from the person who gave this book one star. Whatever that person said, I found completely opposite to be true about this book. I have been engaged with my fiancé for 6 months, and as we began reading this book together, each chapter dealt with our issues/problems. And chapters that did not really apply to us at the moment, helped us prepare for the future.
I have also read bunch of other very good books on marriage, which helped as well. But if I had to choose a book of all the books I've read, I would choose this one. My sister just got married, and I just mailed it to her as one of the wedding gifts.
It doesn't matter if you lived on your own or with parents before the marriage, this book helps both partners get on the same page. No matter how much you think you know, it won't help much unless both of you are on the same page, walking in the same direction and this book helps you with just that. We had some very serious issues that this book helped us solve. I would recommend it to all. Chapters here are short, so we read one chapter a day. it gave us all the necessary information to think about without overloading us.
I completely agree with others who gave this book 5 stars, this is a must read.
The Best Wedding Gift of All Sep 21, 2004
A few months ago, I wasn't sure we would reach our 6 month anniversary. Things were pretty rough. Neither of us knew what to do. My wife came across this book on our bookshelf - it had been a wedding gift, but neither of us thought to really look at it. We began reading a chapter a night, completing the discussions and the activities. The discussions especially helped us, as we found that each of us had different expectations and misconceptions about our marriage. Today, we celebrate our 6 month anniversary, a happy day that neither of us was sure we'd see. We are thrilled.
We would reccomend this book to any couple, newly married or struggling. Of course, unless both of you are willing to read it together, it may not benefit you at all. For us, however, it was a blessing. It's the only couple's book that we have found that addresses the needs of each of us.
DEFINITELY GET THIS BOOK!
Very Relevant Apr 21, 2004
This is the most relevant book on marriage that I've ever read. I've been married for a year and a half and this book covered more things than our pre-marital counseling book did. A must have for all newlyweds. I appreciated that all discussions and suggestions were based on Scripture. Very good!
Don't Bother Feb 16, 2003
This book is laughable. It sounds like it was written in the fifties. Although I do not argue with the authors about their main points (which are bibically based), I have problems with the perspective of the authors. They don't appear to be in touch with reality and what couples today face. For example, they talk about marriage and as if it were the first time that both the husband and wife have lived outside of their parents homes. I suppose this would be true if most couples were marrying at 18 or 20, but nowadays most people are marrying later and have lived on their own. The wife also gives advice to never reject the "advances" of your husband because it might bruise his ego and make him have a wandering eye. In short, both my fiancee' and I were extremely disappointed in this book.
