Conversations Before a Marriage
By Matt Kramer
George Bernard Shaw once said, "The biggest problem with communication is the illusion that it has been accomplished." In the case of marriage, it seems that the illusion doesn't last long after vows are exchanged. This makes the period before a marriage crucial to its success. Unfortunately, most people choose to ignore potential problems because they want to preserve the initial euphoria of their relationship. Once in wedlock, however, those issues are forced into the open. For one in every two marriages, that means divorce. Conversations Before a Marriage by Matt Kramer is a new book that helps readers break down barriers to communication. It teaches readers, through exercises and instruction, how to confront difficult problems experienced by every relationship. Not only can it prepare couples for marriage, but also help lay the groundwork for long and happy lives together.
