Glad I got this before I am getting engaged. Sheds a lot of light on everything.
I really liked this book. I found it very insightful and it gave my girlfriend and I a lot of important topics to discuss that we had not thought of. I am incredibly glad we got this book.
Also I don't read much and found this to be an easy read which was a big plus.
