"This volume handily covers the most common events that can cause problems in a marriage if not navigated wisely: keeping the lines of communication open, bedroom matters (and things that happen in the bedroom do matter!), starting a family, and issues surrounding money. Ms Lancaster offers practical, down to earth advice based on her own marital life experience as if she were having a conversation with her reader rather than conducting a lecture. Her writing style makes the text engaging, and the illustrations, both playful and straightforward, also help to break up the text into manageable portions that hold the reader's interest.
I would recommend this book to anyone entering into marriage for the first time who is working to set themselves up for success." - Barbara Land, Author
From the Author
When we encounter a difficulty we ask ourselves, Now What? It's a time when we're looking for answers to get out of a quandary or when we're confused. That is the purpose of this series. I can name the elephants in the room and we can have a no-nonsense conversation about it. I love naming elephants... I don't know why people hate talking about them. Reality is reality and it's not going to change if we don't acknowledge them, don't you agree? So, might as well discuss it and find ways to deal with it.
You're Getting Married Soon... Now What? contains specific questions that needs to be asked by couples, whether they're about to be married, just married or even if they never plan to get married! It's the secret to making relationships work. I'm quite surprised to observe that most couples don't have this conversation. Before we enter into a commitment, we need to know who we're committing to, what is expected of us and what we should expect in the future. This will help couples avoid developing unrealistic expectations that often ruin marriages... and love. Faith in love is one thing... wishful thinking is another.
I'm a romantic, but not hopeless. I believe in having dreams and then doing what is needed to help the universe make those dreams come true.
