The book promised to be "raw", which I understand is subjective so, perhaps it just was not "raw" enough for me. I also think the introduction should highly suggest that both persons of the couple read this together, I do not see much benefit for only one person of the couple to read. Overall, it hit the highlights of what marriage will bring and what it also, might not!

Also good to know if you are reading this review and are considering this bo

There are much better prepping for marriage books out there for girls. Though this advice is highly practical, unemotional and honest, it fails to do anything further than lead the reader down a path of common sense. Only recommended for teen-early twenties girls whose mother literally taught them nothing.

Offers some very practical points for consideration.
