What People are Saying About This

Linda Adams President and CEO

"Jim Bierman's book is packed with enlightening and practical advice for any couple planning for marriage. He shows them how to deal directly with every important aspect of their relationship ahead of time and in a sensitive, loving way. I highly recommend it both to anyone planning to be married and to professionals who work with couples."

Harville Hendrix

"All couples prepare for their wedding but few for their marriage. For those couples who want to insure their marriage endures, this book is an excellent and essential guide. I recommend it without reservation."

Peter J. Larson

"Of Sound Mind to Marry offers a well-informed overview of the journey into marriage. Not just another book filled with advice, Bierman's understanding of the psychological nuances of premarital and marriage relationships is presented in a clear and useful format. Add this one to your premarital reading list. A fresh treatment of the journey into marriage; Of Sound Mind to Marry is a sophisticated psychological look at forming a life-long relationship. Bierman is not afraid to tackle the difficult topics such as prenuptial agreements and deciding not to marry."

Richard Geller

"I haven't seen anything quite like this before. In my work I have several hundred clients, most of whom do some pre-marital counseling. If couples just read this book, they wouldn't need anything else. That's how good the book is. A great deal of thought that someone should give to getting married is really in asking the right questions. And those questions are clearly spelled out."
