The Aleph-bet of Marriage
You're in love and planning a wedding, but how can you, as a couple, avoid the common stumbling blocks on the journey toward a successful relationship? For starters, try the highly successful and enlightening seven-week commitment workshop from the URJ Department of Jewish Family Concerns, for which this volume is a primary text. Like the course, this book helps couples explore their differing perspectives, families of origin, and expectations for marriage, while heightening skills in communication, negotiation, and conflict resolution. Helpful to all couples who are joining their lives together, including same-sex couples. Suitable for small and large congregations.
