Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Great preparation for couples planning or thinking about marriage. My wife and I used it before we got married, and it forced us to discuss some difficult / embarrassing / important subjects. It is better to discuss these before marriage, when things are more negotiable. Also, it forces you to learn good communication skills as you discuss these areas of difference. The authors' emphasize that opposites attract, but similarities are money in the bank you can draw on.
This is a book that is best used for young couples not living together and just starting out their adult life through marriage. Although, even veterans can gain some insight through this book on the psychology of marriage.
