About the book

What is marriage? It's a question too many of us are asking ourselves. Marriage is the free consent of a man and a woman to be joined together, witnessed by the Church, which becomes the foundation of a family. It may surprise you to know that marriage starts with the engagement. This important time is when your marriage begins to take shape. If you want a phenomenal marriage, you need to be intentional about how you build it.

  • The hard subjects. There are five key areas that present the biggest challenges to any marriage. If you and your beloved can work through them, your marriage has a high likelihood of success. I'll show you how to have the tough conversations.
  • Support your fianceé. Planning a wedding is one of the most stressful experiences that any woman can go through. I'll explain the planning process so that you can better support her.
  • The driver's seat. TYou and your fiancée get to decide what kind of marriage you want to have. If you want to have a quality, fruitful, happy marriage, you need to start right now.

Build your marriage right. You can have a successful marriage, if you start building right from the start. Set the right expectations and immerse yourself in what marriage truly is. Use your engagement to plan your wedding and your marriage. By starting to work together with your soon-to-be spouse, you can ensure that you'll spend more of your marriage enjoying one another than fighting.
