PS: This is also now my official go-to book gift for my girlfriends when they announce their engagements. ESSENTIAL reading before saying "I Do"
It guides you through 10 detailed conversations and focuses on some very intense topics that every couple absolutely needs to discuss if considering tying the knot. The writer is witty and humorous in parts and easy to read, while still interjecting the psychology of communication into each chapter. It is not one of those "girly, feel good" books that the other person is going to roll his eyes and sigh, but one which both parters can thoroughly enjoy and get very meaningful information from. Take it seriously, but also have a good time going through the discussions.
My fiance and I learned so much from this book. We knew and had already discussed a lot of it, and some of it we thought we had discussed, but with the guided questions and probing discussions from the author, we were able to get deeper than we had before. There were a couple arguments stemming from certain topics, but the author discusses how to effectively communicate in the first chapter, which we went back to when things got heated. You must remember to respect the other person's feelings about a topic and listen to their point genuinely because it is quite likely that you will disagree on some things. That's part of marriage though, and going into a marriage relationship with an understanding of what to expect from your partner in regards to the big and small issues, will help you get through the tough times you face in the years ahead.
Anyway... I encourage anyone and everyone in a relationship to read this book. Even if you do not do it as a "make sure we're compatible" tool, you will have a lot of fun asking the questions and learning about each other!
FANTASTIC book - make sure you read the chapters too - do not just read the questions.
