    " This has a lot of practical wisdom written in it and really good for discussing different things within marriage when engaged or for pre engagement. Very good to read. "

    " Like many of Gary Chapman's books, this is a fast, easy read filled with useful and practical suggestions. Several of the topics covered in this book at topics I have regularly discussed with people over the last 30 years. My top picks would be How romantic feeling need aren't enough, that you need to work to keep love going. Understanding differences and choosing to love your partner in a way that is meaningful to them. How forgiveness and apologizing are key to making a marriage work. How background can effect a relationship. If I was to write a book to someone who is dating and wanting to know about getting ready for marriage, this is what I would have written, except not as articulately. The only thing I wish Chapman would have stressed a bit more is the danger of looking to a marriage and your partner to provide things that only God can provide. This is one of the biggest problem areas I have seen over the years in marriages between relatively mature people. For someone who haven't thought through relationships this is a 4 star book. For someone who has had good role models and has thought in depth about relationships it might be just 3 stars simply because you might not find a lot of "new" or "challenging" here… though knowing and practicing can be two different things.

    " This book is really beneficial, regardless of what stage your relationship is in. Growing up, we tend to get attached to certain ideas about what marriage will be like, when the reality is nothing like those ideas. Rather than being blindsided by how things actually are when marriage arrives, this book helps you to establish a perception of marriage that is grounded in truth. Having a realistic view of marriage will most definitely prevent disillusionment, so I highly recommend this book. The chapters were short, easy to read, and easy to understand. There are also resources included in the book that the author recommends for further study and growth. I really enjoyed this book! "
