Overview

Building a marriage is a lifelong endeavor for both men and women. Most marriage books cover the three C's--communication, compromise, and consideration -- but fail to address many issues critical to a healthy relationship. Family advocate Kay James calls these the "things I wish I had known before I got married": advice on finances, sex, children, and dealing with the extended family. Noting that the apostle Paul exhorted older women not to inspire or counsel younger women, but to teach them how to be wives to their husbands, Kay offers a lifetime's wealth of wisdom for creating an unbreakable marriage relationship.

This book was given to me as a gift from a dear and close friend at my bridal shower and everytime I refer to it, usually at times when I'm facing some difficulty in my new marriage, I give God thanks for her. I've been married for 7 months and have since, lost contact w/ some of my close girlfriends w/ whom I used to have lengthy discussions about love and life. Now, it's just the two of us and I really don't have anyone to turn to for a real sister-girlfriend talk when crisis hits. This book as been such a refuge, and more, in those times. It's a real resource for the young christian woman looking for guidance down the many avenues of this journey...marriage.
