*****Anyone considering getting married should read this!! 5-Star Fantastic!!*****

This was an excellent book for anyone to read who’s engaged or preparing to get married… or even for anyone who’s already married, for that matter (just as I am.) It was a pretty quick & enjoyable read too, overall, and not too “lengthy” of a book. Couples would definitely enjoy reading this together. (Even the men will enjoy this book, since it was authored by two men.) The authors add some humor and stories t

****An Advance Reader Copy of Getting Ready for Marriage: A Practical Road Map for Your Journey Together by Jim Burns and Doug Fields was generously provided to me via NetGalley in exchange of honest review.

3.5 stars, great but.. Not my cup of tea.

Not sure why I picked up this book, I thought it's going to be some sort of romance, but no, it's a non fiction book. Or personally to me, more like a self-help book but for a soon-to be married couple. It's great but not gonna lie, I don't really rea

This book was recommended to my fiancé and me by our premarital counselor. Written from a Christian perspective, this book is informative and full of wisdom. Many of the chapters mention but do not focus on the Christian view of relationships and their related issues. We learned a lot about ourselves, our relationship, and each other in reading this book together. I recommend buying the workbook and completing the exercises with your significant other.

I've read about 10 books on marriage in preparation for mine and this one was the best by far. Very comprehensive and practical, yet based on Biblical principles. It quoted from several of the other books I had read. Highly recommended.

a balanced and humble approach

I really enjoyed the concise and humble nature of the Authors' approach. This book was much less condescending than some others and the language felt much more affirming than some other books.

Highly recommended

Some of the ideas in this are a bit whacky but, overall, a sensible book with sensible ideas.
