    What Are Your Priorities?

    *Great for those thinking about marriage. *Draws you in. *Emotional. *This is a quality marriage/relationship DVD on lessons of love, listening, and caring for your marriage partner. *Offers insightful advice. *Do a house, a car, and/or a nice employment position determine that a couple will have a good marriage? How does all this hold up when it is gone? These are just some questions to ponder. *This DVD offers quality advice to strengthen a marriage. Another DVD you may want to view is "Fireproof", it is good too.

    This is a beautiful movie that shows the best side of a man. One who chooses to live by his faith and honors his wife by honoring the vows he made to her.

    Morris Chestnut is gorgeous but the movie even made that real. His wife begins to take that for granted depite me, the viewer, not being able to forget as the screen flashes from scene to scene of his athletic build playing basketball, working out, coaching little league. That's like marriage; we forget to "see" our spouses as others do or even as we did when we were dating. The way their marriage began to fall apart slowly and without real understanding or communication on either of their parts, was realistic and well written. The ending is wonderful.

    Great for those married and unmarried!

    First, let me say I'm unmarried. Saw this on the big screen. Couples would do well to not only view this together, but share its meaning with as many people as possible. The unmarried should grab hold to this work-of art, and make it a part of their plan in matrimonial success. The performances, interaction, and interlocking spiritual nature of this film cries out for a world-wide audience! Without giving too much detail, let me suffice to say that in a world where relationship films are increasingly becoming one-dimensional, it's refreshing to soak up a healthy dose of some desperately-needed, long-forgotten, reality.
