Read an Excerpt

You may think you know almost everything there is to know about the man you've chosen to be your groom. Trust us, this little book will show that really, you don't. No matter how long you two have known each other, no matter how much you've talked-about matters both serious and foolish-there's plenty you haven't yet learned about him.

This hundred-question quiz will help you to educate yourself, so grab a pencil and see how you do. You won't find the answers in the book, of course. For those, you'll have to check with your man. When you do, you'll find yourselves talking to each other about each other: your likes and dislikes, your beliefs and opinions, and stories and facts about your pasts.

They're little things, sure, but they aren't insignificant. They're the bits and pieces that make up who we are. And knowing about them is much more than collecting mere personal trivia. Knowing is caring.

Score ten points for each correct answer (taking partial credit wherever you can) and rate yourself according to this scale:
Above 900: What a performance!
800-900: Very good for a couple just starting out.
600-790: Pretty good. You'll improve as time goes by.
Below 600: Ask your groom for a remedial course.

Good luck.
