Is this the person for me?
Should we live together first?
How should we get engaged?
Everyone wants to find the right person and live happily ever after. But how do you know if your relationship is the real thing? And how do you make it last?
Fr. Joseph Champlin knows a lot about real love. He's presided over five hundred marriages in the last ten years alone and his wedding preparation booklet Together for Life has sold over seven million copies. In fact it's used by well over half the couples married in the Catholic Church in the U.S. each year. His popularity as a presider and his success as a writer spring from the same source: his deep concern for couples and his ability to listen and respond to them.
Now he offers the wisdom of his experience to couples who are asking some very important questions: Is this the person for me? Should we live together first? How should we get engaged? There are no pat answers here. But if you are genuinely concerned about building a lasting relationship, you'll find some probing questions and lots to think about. And you'll encounter some of the many couples who have shared with Fr. Champlin what makes them confident and hopeful as they begin their lives togethervalues like friendship, communication, forgiveness, romance, trust, patience . . . and faith.
