I'm writing this review from the perspective of a non-Christian. Yes, there are a couple of comments about homosexuality that made me cringe and a few more anecdotes about Christianity saving marriages than probably necessary. However, the majority of the book is just solid, priceless advice for building a successful marriage. It might be just that little bit too alienating for gay couples to get through, which is the shame. (Maybe there is a more progressive equivalent out there that someone ...more

After 3 years of marriage, my husband and I are doing the Marriage Course as a freshen-up. We're fine, but we wanted the refresher. It's been great! Reading the book, supplemented by the class, has had a powerful impact on our marriage. Like I said, we weren't in any way on the rocks, but we're closer than we've ever been because we've been conscious to listen to each other and to be gentle with each other, even beyond the physical. Even for non-Christians, I can see this book being helpful; it ...more

My wife and I completed Nicky & Sila Lee’s “The Marriage Course” at our church. It is a superb programme which we undertook together. Although other couples do the course at the same time, the only discussion - well-guided and substantial - takes place between husband and wife only. The DVD presentation was excellent - cleverly clearly Christian in foundation but applicable to believers and unbelievers alike. The tone is accessible, windsome, honest and direct. There are lots of stories and ...more

Sentiments are still very relevant and there are some great lessons in here that I would recommend for anyone before embarking on a marriage, Christian or non Christian.

There are some dated moments referring to ‘turning off the answering machine’ and dare I say some of the sex advice is perhaps a little naive now, but that could just be me!

must have to read for each person, who has willingness to prepare for marriage.

Túto knihu sme čítali v rámci nášho manželského stretka a tak ju aj vnímam. Sedem tém, ktoré táto kniha rozoberá (dlhodobý cieľ, komunikácia, skutky lásky, konflikty, odpustenie, svokrovci a sex) tu nie sú komplexne rozobrané, skôr sú to len také prvé nástrely do jednotlivých oblastí manželského života. Nám osobne to vyhovovalo, keďže jednotlivé kapitoly nám slúžili ako podnety k diskusiám v rámci stretka.

Kniha je napísaná jednoduchým štýlom. Je to taká zmes populárnej psychológie a

This book is superb, and perhaps superior to other marriage hand-books, because it is written as a book for any marriage and not just newly-weds. I can imagine myself reading it again (or at least some of the chapters) after our first year of marriage to refresh a lot of the ideas in my mind.

Also, the use of real situations from the authors' and other people's lives, as well as the support from various scriptures, grounds this book in reality and prevents the practical suggestions from being

Vooral overslaan dit boek. Het is een hergekauwde samenvatting van 'Wat wil hij, wat wil zij' en 'de 5 talen van de liefde' - als je die boeken ooit gelezen hebt kan je dit boek gerust overslaan. Naast het feit dat ik me toch sterk afvraag of er ooit stellen bestaan die liever twee jaar zwijgen over een lullig incidentje dan gewoon direct aangeven dat een opmerking niet zo goed viel, lijken de schrijvers ook nog in het jaar nul te leven mbt visie op seksualiteit. Evidence based is het in het ...more

We have done the Marriage Course (DVD + book + exercises) as a part of our curriculum in a YWAM Family Ministries School - and boy am I grateful for that! We had a good marriage but still the exercises made us to improve our communication and conflict resolution A LOT. They even challenged us to communicate clearly and openly about topics that we were avoiding before - sex, past hurts, problems. What is the strong point is the approach - the authors are not trying to micromanage the relations of ...more
Best marriage book I've encountered so far. It starts off with the personal story of the authors which makes the rest of the book so much more palatable. Seven down to earth, yet inspiring chapters that simply guide and help without judging. Best thing about the book is that it has a chapter on 'good sex' something most Christian marriage books hardly touch. It doesn't answer or include everything, but it's a good start.
Hubby and I read this together (which is why it took so long). Definitely a good one to give as a wedding present (together with "The 5 Love Languages"). There are also appendices related to things like "Are we ready for marriage" and "The engagement" and "budgeting" (all of which we skipped having been through that already). Also the kind of book that one can learn different things at different times.
Clifton Bartholomew
This book is so great if you are thinking about marriage, are engaged or even if you are already married. It creates a thought framework which allows you to think about your relationship in a refreshing way. It is not an instruction book that tells you what to, but rather creates a space to allow you to think.

Very well written and I recommend it to all who want a reflective marriage.

Shelves: religious
It's a good book for those who are getting married - knowing the ups and downs and not just the bed of roses. Marriage isn't as easy as Disney portrays, and sometimes even true love dries out. Marriage is a commitment and a lifelong learning process. I'm quite happy to read this book early on. That being said, I would like more stories and even deeper discussion on marriage.

Shelves: self-help
good book with useful ideas, speaks a lot of truth. Can be read and enjoyed if you are not Christian like myself but if you are very anti religious you may find some references to prayer and the role of the Christian God in marraige grating.
Joel Kleehammer
This book was a gift from a friend when I really needed it. I originally just thumbed through it, looking for ideas, but I finally sat down and read it. There are a lot of good ideas inside, and it is truly inspired.
Iain Hamill
Good book with very broad access. Not as Biblically based or thorough as Keller's marriage book but it doesn't aim to be. Particularly strong section on communication.
useful to look at again and again. considered approach to one of the most difficult relationships we have to nurture and grow
Eric Chappell
A solid & helpful book on marriage. The authors provide some great practical tactics for working through the ordinary problems in marriage.
