Description

Before you plan your wedding, plan your marriage! Wish you could know what you're getting into when you say "I do"? Now, with Things I Wish I'd Known Before We Got Married, you can. Dr. Gary Chapman, #1 New York Times best-selling author of The 5 Love Languages™, has spent the last thirty-five years counseling couples. In Things I Wish I'd Known Before We Got Married, he shares what he and these couples have learned from experience. Among the twelve things you should know: that being in love is not enough to make a successful marriage, that romantic love has two stages (and how to make the transition), that mutual sexual fulfillment is not automatic, and that personality profoundly affects behavior. The stakes on marriage are high, but the rewards of preparing are even higher. Whether you're single or dating, this audio can be your relationship blueprint and help you decide if and when you're ready to tie the knot. If you're engaged, even recently married, it will help you examine your relationship foundation and learn the skills necessary for building a successful marriage. Things I Wish I'd Known Before We Got Married was written to help you realize your goal of marital happiness. But don't just listen to it-experience it. Grapple with the practical tips and ideas discussed, honestly share your thoughts and feelings, respect each other's opinions, and find workable solutions to your differences. The more you do so, says Chapman, the more you will be prepared for marriage.

    This is an Amazing helpful book. Must read. Thank you.
  • (5/5)
    I think every single, dating, engaged and even married person should read this. It prompts you to examine yourself and all your expectations (and have a discussion about them with your partner) before making such a big commitment. Basically it’s all about communication and telling each other exactly what you expect so that you can agree or negotiate ready for the future. Glad I read this.

    Truth be told, I wish I read this book before getting married. But hey, as the saying goes, better later than never.
