    Things you should already know.

    I recently recieved this book, and after going through the questions, I realized one thing... They are very basic. Every question in this book should be answered long before a couple even startes considering engagement, because these thing are all essential to know before you decide to take that step. I'm very surprised and concerned that people who are engaged and even married are reading this book and have no idea of their partner's answers to these questions. My fiance and I went through the entire book and could have, without hesitation, answered each question for the other.

    good tool

    I had the first book and me and my fiance at the time went through it...went well I thought. It was a good tool. He didn't really take it very seriously even after 8 years and planning a wedding.We never made it down the aisle. Decided to try this book earlier in the relationship with a very strong candidate, and we are loving the book. I would suggest more questions. I could suggest a few. Even for those who are already married there are questions that are worthy of discussing.

    A must before gettting married

    We purchased this book soon after getting engaged. After going through the book we realized that we had to many differences. I expected her to work she wanted to stay home. Money was the biggest issue and so was family. We've thought it out and ralized that perhaps its not wise to get married just yet.

    Surprisingly helpful

    I received this book as a gift when my fiance and I became engaged. We have been together for several years, so I figured we would have covered most of the questions in the book already. While we had discussed some of the questions in the past, there were many things we hadn't thought to talk about yet. At first my fiance was hesitant at the thought of talking through 100 questions, but after the first couple of chapters he was all for it. We were both surprised at how good it felt to speak openly about such tough questions.

    really really helpful

    I would really recommend this book...to people trying to figure out what to do - either to take the next step in forming a new relationship, or starting out fresh on their own. Ms. Piver's questions helped me to think about some things that i kind of knew/felt already, but she gave me a language and a framework to have the discussion - first with myself and then with my girlfriend.

    Wished I waited to read this before I married

    When I started reading this book I had expectations of what it should have been. First off, it drew me right in with very truthful reasoning I ignored beforehand. The entire book is written sincerely and designed to be functional. With divorce rates being as they are, open minded couples do in fact need this information. An extremely reasonable premise in this book that reasonable people absolutely should investigate before going to the alter.

    Old advice

    Look before you leap ¿ or "take the plunge" if you will. This book will make a nice Christmas gift but not suggested as a wedding present, considering it would be too late. (Look up the word "gauche" in the dictionary.)

    A Marriage Must

    If every couple answered these hard questions before they agreed to get married, there would be a lot less divorce in the world.

    Thought Provoking

    I got a new insight into my husband! We have been married for several years, but I came to know him in a new way. He revealed to me 'hidden' thoughts, I revealed to him 'hidden' thoughts and we discussed our 'hidden' thoughts in a loving way.
