A Must for Marriage Before, During, or After
Dr. Gary Chapman's approach and voice on marriage, his examination of the core values toward marriage, and the easy-going spirit of his counsel and advice on whole really make it simple for both men and women to grasp and take hold of key ideas that are crucial to making marriage, the most important relationship you might ever have in life, happy, successful, and mutually rewarding. Although this is largely based on Christian views and references much of the Bible's teachings on the subject, it is very practicle and the principles can be understood by all.
I've now passed this book on to my wife & both sets of parents and include his "Five Love Languages" book along with it... both books should be manditory reading for couples in all stages even if not married. If you've ever had troubles, concerns, doubts, questions, or just curiosity on this subject GET THIS BOOK! Life is way too short to not pickup this diamond of knowledge and key learning.

A Primer for godly marriage
What did you love best about The Marriage You've Always Wanted?
It really brought together the biblical concept of marriage in a user-friendly format. A must-read before the walk to the altar!
What did you like best about this story?
Dr. Chapman defines unity, accountability and equality within the context of marriage. He supports these concepts with scriptural references and delivers the message with remarkable clarity. If you aren't 'convicted' at some point during this book, then you aren't really married!
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The personal anecdotes were amusing and helpful (I especially liked the one about the "drawer-opener").
Any additional comments?
It's impossible to do the homework assignments while sailing along @ 70 mph, so you'll probably end up buying the book like I did.

The publishers summary says it all. If you want a book that tells you how to become a better Christian and save your marriage, this may be for you. But if you want to hear psychology and advice, forget it.
