The First Years of Forever by Ed Wheat, Gloria Okes Perkins

Nearly half of all serious marital problems develop in the first two years of marriage; yet on the average, couples who seek counseling for the first time have already been married seven years. This five-years counseling gap allows more than enough time for the mortal wounding of a marriage. The First Years of Forever closes the gap by providing much needed, but hard to obtain, counseling for engaged or newly married couples. It is written as a marriage handbook to be read and then referred to again and again. Dr. Ed Wheat, co-author of the best-selling Love Life for Every Married Couple, draws on his training and experiences as a family physician and certified sex therapist to prepare couples for their lifelong journey together. The First Years of Forever provides the practical wisdom most people have to learn the hard way -- or not at all. It tells how to develop skills in communicating with each other and resolving conflicts. And most important, it demonstrates the difference Jesus Christ can make in the quality of marriage.

I am not married yet, but have every intention of being, I seem to be having trouuble with my dream view of marriage and the reality of marriage. this book has been on my shelf for years and I didn't feel that I needed to read it. Well after having another clash with fantasy and reality, I told God that I knew nothing about marriage and needed his help. This book has shown me that my fantasy can become a reality but only if I do the work. I'm exceptionally please with this book and am planning on giving copies to married couples and anyone that I know who desires to be married.
