Publishers Description Months--and sometimes years--of planning go into creating the perfect wedding. But when the last piece of wedding cake is eaten and the rice is thrown, many couples realize they've not put much thought into their honeymoon. Because it's imperative to let the honeymoon and sexual relationship for a couple set the tone for their life as a couple together, two respected physicians draw from their extensive premarital counseling experiences to compile this invaluable guide of honeymoon essentials. It's all here--from birth-control options, a calendar for travel arrangements, medications to have on hand to God's design for the honeymoon. There are even ideas which will help each couple assemble a custom "honeymoon kit." "Bride's Eyes Only" and "Groom's Eyes Only" chapters offer solid advice for the sexual relationship. A one-week devotional section with daily reflections for the first week as husband and wife will help launch any marriage with the right spiritual foundation. The time couples invest in preparing for this important week of marriage and life together will reap years of rewards

What makes up the honeymoon of your dreams? Feb 23, 2007
Walt Larimore is "one of America's best-known family physicians" and Susan Crockett is a "nationally recognized OB/GYN." Having counseled hundreds of couples preparing to be married, they've noticed that often these couples plan a wedding without planning for the 'after.' As Larimore and Crockett explain,"Our goal in writing this book is to introduce you to the divine design for marriage...In essence we want your honeymoon to be the launch pad for...a honeymoon that lasts a lifetime."
A helpful resource for every engaged couple, "Honeymoon" contains tips and advice about the preparation steps--with appendices that include a calendar to assist with medical planning, travel arrangements, and spiritual growth. Also included is a useful list of what to pack for a honeymoon, including appropriate medical documentation if the couple will be traveling in other countries.
"Remember the focus should not be on how exotic the destination is, how extravagant the vacation package...the focus should be on you as a couple, getting started on the right foot." Through exhaustive surveys and numerous counseling sessions, the authors provide real-life stories of those who have been there--planning weddings and honeymoons--and how they have learned from their experiences, both positive and negative. There are special 'bride only' and 'groom only' chapters that aim at relieving anxieties before the wedding night, from each perspective.
The authors stress the benefit of a pre-marriage relationship assessment, and also recommend finding a mentor-couple to learn from. Larimore and Crockett refer to this idea as "stay-married insurance."
Written with humor, experience, and medical expertise, this is an easy-to-read and valuable resource. I would recommend this book for all couples preparing for their wedding, to encourage them to prepare for "happily ever after." A great tool for pastors and counselors, this book also makes a perfect bridal shower gift.
Armchair Interviews says: Unique look at the honeymoon, and beyond.
Biblically practical Feb 1, 2007
This book not only presents the Biblical basis for understanding what marriage is and how to enter into it; it also provides the necessary practical medical information engaged couples need to experience a truly passionate and intimate honeymoon. Graphic but never lurid or gratuitous, this book will be a welcome honeymoon companion for many new couples. It covers everything from travel tips, to birth control, to what to do to prevent and/or treat urinary tract infections, all against the backdrop of a thoughtful Biblical discussion of God's plan for your marriage and how to implement it. Highly recommended!
