    1. This is an amazing book for single Latter-day Saints. The authors are both marriage and family specialists and use their expertise to prepare singles for marriage. Let's face it, before we get married it is a pretty foreign concept and I know that I had (and still have) a lot of misconceptions before reading this book. Each chapter discusses a vital part of the marriage relationship and how we can prepare now in order to have the best transition possible into that new stage of life. The author c [...]

    2. My husband & I read this book the summer before we got married. It was a really good couples read, and opened up a lot of topics of conversation. The perfect preparation for marriage, it covered communication issues, expectations, financial practices, and pretty much anything else that can make or break a marriage. We were both glad we read it, especially during the first few months of being married, because it smoothed out the transition phase a little, and gave us a heads up of what to loo [...]

    3. I read it for the second time with Scott. It took a long time to get through it since we read it out loud but we drew a few good things from it. We had to take a lot of "advice" and statements with a grain of salt, but I will say it is a good read since I have not yet found a better marriage prep book. My favorite part is still the last chapter on building a Christ-centered marriage.

    4. I simply loved this book. I feel that it really prepared me for marriage and helped to focus on the quailities I was searching for in a husband. It also helped me to improve myself to become a better wife.

    5. This book is written by Latter-day Saint authors and talks about what couples can do to strengthen their relationships, have succesful courtships and then succesful marriages. I enjoyed it and think it gives a lot of good advice.

    6. This is a great book to read together with that special someone with whom things are getting serious, but before you get too serious. Among other things the author does a great job of raising important questions that not only you should ask your special-someone, but you should know about yourself.

    7. I read this book cover to cover and so did my husband. It is great for those that are thinking of marrying someone. Both parties need to read it. It brings reality into the love of two young people, making sure you know what you're doing. I appreciate what it taught me more than anything really.

    8. Targets engaged couples. My husband Matt and I read together while we were engaged . . over the phone. Most of our engagement was long distance and this gave us something to do together over the phone. For that reason, I really enjoyed this book.

    9. PGI loved this book! It brought up a lot of "issues" that I've had i.e. sex is preached as bad and not to do it until you're married, and then it's okay.

    10. This is such a great book. Its all about how people should prepare themselves for life after the weding before they get married. There are some great dicussion questions and worksheets.

    11. Incredible book on how to prepare yourself for a LDS temple marriage; I love how if focuses on what you can do to become the type of person you would want to marry.

    12. This is a fantastic book. I read it after I broke up with my fiance, Brad. It cleared things up in my mind that had been bothering me. I am actually re-reading it now for a refresher.

    13. This is a great book for teens and tweens -- it helped me identify what was most important to me as I dated, and helped me recognize what I personally needed to improve on before marriage.

    14. This book is INCREDIBLE. It's perfect for a serious couple OR just a single person who wants to know how they can better prepare for serious dating and marriage.

    15. A must read for anyone dating.or even thinking about dating! I’m probably going to force all my future children to read this book once they are 16 The author is real and he shares his opinion without shoving it down your throat! Great read! t gonna lie the cover is cheesy I hid it while I read the book other than that 👍🏼
