From the Back Cover

"An important and essential book for all couples contemplating marriage."
--Dr. Barry G. Ginsberg, Executive Director, Center of Relationship Enhancement

Love can be bliss, but marriage takes work. Communication, compromise, and joint decision making are key ingredients to a successful marriage. Using a variety of fun, interactive formats, including multiple choice, fill-in-the-blank, and hypotheticals, relationship expert Monica Mendez Leahy brings to the table these and many other important issues that will arise in every marriage--including the ones that may blindside you. 1,001 Questions to Ask Before You Get Married will help you and your partner explore your common goals and perspectives as well as celebrate your unique differences as you prepare for your life journey together.

Through the questions posed in this book, you and your betrothed will explore fundamental questions about nature, thought processes, lifestyle, and marital expectations, including:

  • Is there such a thing as innocent flirting?
  • Do you both want children?
  • How important is religion in your life?
  • Do you think couples should share the same political views?

Hmmm... A person who has been successfully married for a long time and has known her husband for 10 years before tying the knot, supposedly picks up this book, realizes it doesn't offer her anything, and then gives it a negative review? Hello. Talk about a complete disconnect, and a wholly unfair review.

This is a book for people who really need to think about what kind of changes married life will bring -- it's not for people who have known each other since childhood and grew up together (see below), but as grown-ups who come with perhaps unknown sets of values, goals, expectations, families, in-laws, problems, and vision.

For people who take the institution of marriage seriously and need to want to look past the butterflies and flowers of love and engagement to what it means to be really married, warts, mothers-in-law, unemployment, child-rearing exhaustion, nursing homes, affairs, as well as the good times (LOL). The author has really thought through life's possibilities exhaustively..I'd give this to anyone who is marriage-minded. Even if you've met "the one," sometimes it's better to know up front what you're dealing with and face it head on than find out later.

Recommended.

This is the only marriage preparation book I carry in my bridal boutique because of its common sense, secular and all-inclusive content. The book's questions, tips and advice can benefit any type of relationship-professional, personal as well as matrimonial. I have gotten good feedback from my customers. Many brides have told me that the questions in the book can be turned into a fun wedding shower game.

I was impressed by the book's non-threatening and non-preachy tone. It makes me feel good to know I'm offering brides something more than a beautiful wedding gown and accessories.

Gave this to my daughter and her fiancee to prepare them for the most important decision they'll ever make. They laughed at first, but can't stop talking about how much fun it is to ask all the questions. The sections about finances and in-laws are particularly good. I am recommending this book to all my friends who have kids of marrying age.

This book is FANTASTIC and I buy a copy for any friend who is thinking about getting engaged. Some folks complained this book has logical basic questions you should know about your spouse before agreeing to walk down the aisle - but that's exactly the point! I really do think far too many people getting married nowadays assume once they know the very basics (Do you want kids? Do you want to be rich? Will we share a bank account?) and they love the person, they're set! I think the "logical" things aren't all that common anymore and there is nothing to hurt in prepping yourself and your future spouse as much as possible beforehand - you WANT to stay together right? So take some time and go through this. My fiancé and I sat around, going through the questions together, a few day while lounging about after work - it's not hard and can even be fun. We knew far more than it seems many couples knew going into the book, but still found good topics to cover! And we've been happily married for six years.

This book walks couples through a lot of the LOGICAL (sorry, no, they're not all fun and whimsy - but fun and whimsy doesn't build a marriage, those are the perks!), solid questions you should cover before committing your life to someone. Beyond having kids, it walks through what you might each do in a situation during their upbringing. On finances, you go from basics about banking to taxes to how to handle situations regarding layoffs and other woes. From defining each version of "cheating" (this really does vary person to person, oddly enough, as so many couples forget about lines coworkers may try to cross or emotional cheating), etc.

If I'd read this book before my first marriage I wouldn't have said "I do"! It covers everything that can come up at some point in a relationship. It is very time consuming. But be patient it is worth the time. I am also happy to report that the love of my life has been so great at working thru this book. And it has really confirmed for us that we are truly meant for each other!

I learned so much about my fiance by going over these questions with him. Assumptions I was taking for granted were revealed to be inaccurate in several places - I was really glad we talked about them BEFORE getting married when it was probably easier to be honest. Afterwards I think I would have been more afraid of being honest and maybe of "ruining" our sense of togetherness. Other areas where I thought we might hold different opinions I was happily surprised to see we really agreed! I know that having done this (fun! really!) "homework" our "honeymoon" will last a whole lot longer! Great book - highly recommended to anyone in a serous relationship.
