My husband and I did the Saving Your Marriage Before it Starts course with our pastor for pre-marital counciling, and I would recommend it to any couple preparing for marriage. It was easy and fun, and it taught us SO much. It was a real bonding experience, and it truly helped us be a much better husband and wife.

This book is a wonderful starting point for marriage, or even just relationships. It brings to light a lot of issues/viewpoints that one would not normally consider. I have enjoyed reading this book and doing the workbook that goes along with it. My fiance' and I have really gotten to know one another in a deeper, more intimate, more real way through reading this. Knowing that God has us in His hands, that there are people out there who have been through the things we will undoubtedly face, and seeing the success that each has had in their dependency on Christ gives me huge hope for the future. Thanks for helping us have a wonderful beginning!

I just began using the Parrott's materials, Saving Your Marriage Before It Starts, for engaged couples in our premarital education program and, so far, the response has been positive. Couples affirm that it is helpful. One young man said he has begun to think more about what marriage means and what it will entail. He also has been more attentive to other couples and how they relate to each other. I am pleased with the response.

My wife and I read through the books and the study guide while we were engaged. SOOOOOO good!! Even if you aren't a Christian, the principles in communication are amazingly helpful. For us, as believers, perhaps even more so.

I highly recommend it with the study guide. The exercises are really good to help you understand how the other person thinks, what's important to them, and to get a head start - from a married perspective anyway - on who the other person is.

I haven't been married that long, but ask your other married friends - you may think you know all about the other person before you get married, but you learn a ton more once you're married. You also learn a lot about yourself.

The reason this book and study guide are so good is they help you think through things & issues that are common in marriage, common differences between men and women, etc.

And there are some great tools, like "Temperature Check". The book/guide go into more detail, but it provides a really beneficial communication tool to share things you like, don't like, don't understand, or would like to see changed.

I'm making all of my future kids go through when they get engaged.

I can't recommend it highly enough! If you're getting married, get it. If you are married and know you could use some communication help, get it.

Cheers! :)

Very practical advice and information. My fiance each have our own book and workbook. Get the workbook. That's where the real growth takes place, whereas this gives information. I've done the first 20 or so activities in the workbook so far and only 1 of them was a waste of time.

The information is not watered down at all. The chapters are all concise and worth the read. It includes chapters on listening, gender roles (and misconceptions), how to stay in love, etc. I would recommend this book because it is extremely practical, unlike other premarital books that are more vague.

I am a Christian, and this book does not mention the bible very often. The writers are definitely believers, but they did not include a lot of biblical information in the book. I, for one, welcome that because I have already heard plenty of sermons on marriage. This was exactly what I wanted. Anyone can use this book, regardless of religion.

The book is also meant for engaged and married alike. The information is useful regardless of relationship status

We used it as part of our premarital counseling with our pastor and most of it was great. Recommend it.

My husband and I do a lot of pre-marriage counseling and crisis marriage counseling. This book is great for a couple to learn more about communication. The questions in the workbook that complement this book help a couple to understand their expectations and how they are alike or different. We generally think this book is very good in understanding the importance of communication for a marriage. However, it lacks in good material regarding sex and finances. This book definitely has to be supplemented in those areas. It also lacks good theology regarding "Why Marriage". But, if you have a couple really struggling with communication this is a great resource.

I love this book, and it was great for our long distance relationship. It addresses not only the big issues, but the little ones that could be doomed to pick anyone apart. It gets everything out on the table in a way that makes it easy for both people to share. It was easy to each do an activity and then discuss over the phone, and it covered things I never would have thought to cover. It arrived on time, so props to the seller.
