Marriage Is for Keeps: Foundations for Christian Marriage by John F. Kippley

As a student you may not be clear yet about what God is calling you to do job-wise. But one thing you know for certain: if you want to do something more challenging than entry level work for the rest of your life, you have to gain knowledge and learn skills. So you study. In a similar way, you may not know yet if God is calling you to the married life, to the priesthood or religious life, or to the life of dedicated singlehood. But one thing you know for certain: if you marry, you want it to be for keeps! So now is the time to start preparing for marriage. Yes, now, even if you are only in your junior or senior year of high school.

Marriage Is for Keeps: Student Edition is a guidebook for students who, if they marry, want to live the Sacrament of Matrimony to its fullest. The questions it poses will challenge future spouses to confront the vital issues of marriage before they make mistakes that can threaten their happiness together. The answers it provides illuminate the nature of a truly Catholic marriage and the obstacles placed by our culture and our own flaws to marital fulfillment and Christian discipleship.

Originally written for engaged couples, the Student Edition has been modified only slightly for student use. This book is in full agreement with the teachings of the Catholic Church. It is insightful and reflects a common-sense understanding of how marriages are actually lived.
