Things I Wish I'd Known Before We Got Married by Gary Chapman

Things I Wish I'd Known Before We Got Married by Gary Chapman
Published by Northfield Publishing in September 2010.

"With more than 35 years of experience counseling couples, Gary has found that most marriages suffer due to a lack of preparation and a failure to learn to work together as intimate teammates.

So he put together this practical little book, packed with wisdom and tips that will help many develop the loving, supportive, and mutually beneficial marriage they envision, such as:

What the adequate foundation for a successful marriage truly is.  What to expect about the roles and influence of extended family.  How to solve disagreements without arguing.  How to talk through issues like money, sex, chores, and more.  Why couples must learn how to apologize and forgive.  Ideal for newly married couples and those considering marriage, the material lends itself to heart-felt, revealing, and critical conversations for relational success.

Read this book and you’ll be prepared for—not surprised by—the challenges of marriage." - From Goodreads

Will you like it?
If this guy sounds familiar, it's because he's the one that wrote the 5 love languages book.  Each chapter is devoted to a certain topic: money, chores, or how to fight without really fighting.  I appreciated each chapter, and loved how each chapter had questions to ponder over with your significant other.  If you're in a relationship and thinking about marriage, I would definitely recommend this book to you.

Disclosure: I borrowed a copy of this book from my local library.
