This book is fantastic.
When my husband was courting me (yes I use the word court, because marriage was our goal from the day we met each other and we weren't able to date in the 'normal' sense) we went over this book of 101 questions to ask each other. Covering topics like

- How we were raised, our family dynamics, our expectations of family and marriage
- Former dating/marital/sexual relationships if there were any
- Our view of the church, Jesus, denomination, doctrine, other religions etc
- Expec

I am nowhere near engaged at this point in my life. I'm not even dating anyone! However, I was curious to see what sort of questions were included in this book. And there are some good ones, very thought-provoking - some of which, I'm embarrassed to say, I never thought to ask in my previous relationships.

The book is written from a Christian point of view, so bear in mind that there will be some religious questions. However, not as many as I thought.

Didn't entirely get through all the questions in this, but we did what we could before the big day...maybe I'll keep going with it, but I just want it off my currently reading list, lol! I'd definitely recommend this book with all its questions to anyone engaged. Brings up good stuff.

A very good list of conversation starters for dating couples. For eHarmony people a number of these will have been covered before you even meet the person (and that's a good thing), but it's always good to think about important issues up front.

I'm on the fence with this book. It seems to have more of a warning, negative undertone. However, I think a lot of the questions are great in delving deeper not only into the relationship, but ones self. Some questions had me questioning how I truly felt and what I thought about these topics. I do plan on using this with my S.O. as a way to dig a little deeper as the Disney song goes. But being I know this isn't his type of style book, I will just be sticking to the questions.

Hastiness, especially regarding love, is rarely wise. And this book helps you to slow down. Lots of good questions - most will help you to grow deeper in connection with one another. Others will reveal a hidden, unknown aspect of the other. Guaranteed to help communication and reflection. Recommended.

My wife and I read through this book as part of our pre-engagement counseling. This has to be one of the most challenging books to go through with a potential spouse because it really requires participation on both people to make this a beneficial process. The book is set up with a question (or group of questions) at the top fo the page with much blank space. At the bottom of the page is a summary to read after you have both discussed the question.

She and I wrote our answers to our questions on
