Contained in this book is a unique series of six questionnaires to be completed privately and independently by prospective brides and grooms.
Each questionnaire is the "homework" for the one anticipating marriage. When completed, each sheet can be torn out and given to the pastor or marriage counselor prior to the actual counseling session so the counselor can be advised in advance concerning areas to discuss in the actual sessions. This procedure saves both time and embarrassment.
Each of the six sheets represents the preparation for a succession of six counseling sessions. The final one deals with specifics of the actual ceremony.
The guide is also helpful in another way: As each one fills out his or her form, the mind will focus upon possible difficulties. Because it is often easier to say some things in writing than it is to articulate them in conversation, the very writing process will underscore potential problem areas which would best be dealt with prior to marriage. This guide is also useful where a counselor is not available. As the couple compares their answers these areas will become evident.
