You've Planned Every Detail of Your Wedding—But Have You Planned Your Marriage?

Written by a pastor who has counseled hundreds of couples, Before You Say "I Do" will help every bride and groom discover what they need to know about themselves, each other, and their marriage—before the wedding. Featuring questions designed to inspire in-depth conversations between you and your future spouse, this book also invites parents, friends, future in-laws, clergy, and children from previous marriages into the discussions to offer their own perspectives.

Together, couples are encouraged to explore their life histories and experiences, their hopes and dreams, and their views on love, children, religion, work, and politics—to find both common and uncommon ground on which to strengthen the foundation of their relationship.
