Gary Chapman writes, "Most people spend far more time in preparation
for their vocation than they do in preparation for marriage." No wonder the divorce
rate hovers around fifty percent. Bestselling author and marriage counselor Gary
Chapman hopes to change that with his newest book. Gary, with more than 35 years
of experience counseling couples, believes that divorce is the lack of preparation
for marriage and the failure to learn the skills of working together as intimate
So he put together this practical little book, packed with wisdom
and tips that will help many develop the loving, supportive and mutually beneficial
marriage men and women long for. It's the type of information Gary himself wished
he had before he got married. The material lends itself to heart-felt discussions
by dating or engaged couples. To jump-start the exchanges, each short chapter includes
insightful "Talking it Over" questions and suggestions. And, the book includes information
on interactive websites as well as books that will enhance the couples experience.
Chapman even includes a thought-provoking appendix. By understanding and balancing
the five key aspects of life, dating couples can experience a healthy relationship.
A revealing learning exercise is included at the end.
