"Most people spend far more time in preparation for their vocation than they do in preparation for marriage,"
- Dr Gary Chapman

With over 35 years of experience in marriage counselling, best-selling author Dr Gary Chapman believes that divorce stems from the lack of preparation for marriage and the failure to learn the skills of working together as intimate teammates. So he put together this practical little book, packed with wisdom and tips that will help readers develop the loving, supportive and mutually beneficial marriage they long for. It's the type of information Gary himself wished he had before he got married! This is not a book simply to be read. It is a book to be experienced. 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. Also included are references to helpful interactive websites and further reading. By understanding and balancing the five key aspects of life, dating couples can experience a healthy dating relationship.

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.
