    What every other book never told you

    I have to admit I have been quite anxious about my upcoming wedding and until I started reading this book I truly didn't understand why. I kept trying to blame things like my mother and the fact that I haven't lost as much weight as I wanted, but finally this book hit the spot. It has an insight into the emotional transition from singlehood to married life that all the other superficial books deny. After all I'm not just becoming some emptied headed blushing bride. I am becoming a wife. Something I secretly find terrifying, Is he the one? Am I too young? What am I doing? Reading it and doing the worksheets has let me air out so many thoughts and feelings that were hindering me from enjoying my engagement. Now I have open conversations about my concerns with my fiance and we are working things out rather than fighting. It has been so comforting to the both of us (we read parts together) that we can put a name to our fears and face them together. This book is not a downer but it makes you ask serious questions, and it doesn't pretend that a bride should be more concerned with the wedding than the marriage. If I could give it more stars I would, it has given me peace of mind.

    Essential for the bride-to-be!

    As a therapist, I found this book to be essential for my preparation and transition to marriage. Not only does it cover the practical things you need to know, it also makes you think about the array of emotional issues that you encounter throughout your engagement. I highly recommend this book to any bride-to-be!
