Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

“Most people spend far more time in preparation for their vocation than they do in preparation for marriage.”

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 bookand you’ll be prepared for—not surprised by—the challenges of marriage.

Bonus features include:

  • Book suggestions and an interactive websites to enhance the couples’ experience
  • “Talking it Over” questions and suggestions to jumpstart conversations over each chapter
  • Appendix on healthy dating relationships and an accompanying learning exercise

Très bon livre qui pose les questions essentielles avant de fonder une vie mariée et propose des pistes de réponse.

Mes critiques :
- le livre est somme toute assez court
- rien ne remplace la communication mutuelle et la compréhension de l'autre pour fonder un couple, pas même un "contact physique" échangé contre un "service rendu" (faire l'amour en échange de la vaisselle... je caricature, mais c'est un peu ce à quoi aboutit l'idée de "langages de l'amour").

Je recommande cependant à ceux qui vont se marier (si possible avant le mariage;)

I finished this book in no time. It is captivating. Everyone can relate to the examples given. It is really practical and logical. After finishing it you just wonder why we don't have classes about all of this as it is essential!

Dr. Chapman is the author of the best-selling book, "The Five Love Languages".


1. Feelings of being "in love" cannot sustain a marriage, since the average life-span of these feelings is about two years. What sustains a marriage is spouses learning to communicate love in the forms that are most received by their partner.

2. We will often develop uncanny similarities to our parents, including their drinking habits, communication patterns, energy levels, and appearance.

3. Resolving marital disagreements without arguing. Truly listening to the other spouse in order to give an adequate summary of his or her perspective. Agreeing to disagree. Learning to compromise.

4. The importance of spouses making effective apologies for wrongdoing. Learning to speak your spouse's language of apology is more effective than just saying you are sorry. The five different ways of apologizing are 1) expressing regret, 2) accepting responsibility, 3) making restitution, 4) genuinely expressing the desire to change your behavior, and 5) requesting forgiveness.

5. Forgiveness is one's decision to offer grace instead of demanding justice.

6. How spouses can agree on doing which household chores.

7. How spouses can most effectively manage their money, and what common major mistakes to avoid, such as purchasing a home they cannot afford, going out to eat too often, buying new cars, and buying too much alcohol. How to live on 80% of your income, give 10% to charity, and save 10%. How couples can agree not to buy something over a certain amount without consulting the other.

8. Resolving common sexual difficulties. Overcoming the myth that husband and wife must reach climax together. A husband should spend sufficient time caressing his wife. A husband participating in household chores will often increase desire in his wife for him. Spouses should only engage in sexual acts they are both comfortable with.

9. How spouses can develop good relationships with their in-laws, by learning to listen empathetically to them, speaking their particular love languages to them, and alternating holidays with them.

10. Spiritual compatibility in marriage has more to do with what each spouse believes in the way God speaks to them and what He has said.

11. How spouses can live with a partner who has very different habits, including Morning person vs. Night person, Optimist vs. Pessimist, Neat vs. Messy, Talker vs. Non-talker, Passive vs. Aggressive, Logical thinkers vs. Intuitive person, and Organizer vs. Spontaneous person.

12. Having a balanced dating relationship by attending to these areas of growth: Intellectual, Emotional, Social, Spiritual, and Physical.

I really enjoyed this book as someone who is just starting to contemplate marriage with my partner. While we've addressed some issues, others (like money management) hadn't even crossed my mind. I think that this book is a wonderful starting point for our relationship and I look forward to many stimulating conversations before marriage. I have also read the five love languages, and recommend both to any new couple I come by.

Most believe that the feeling of love, and attraction, is what's needed to have and instill a successful marriage, If only it were that easy. This read provides the framework for maintaining and preparing for a fulfilling marriage while keeping in perspective the inevitableness of conflict.
Some believe it's as easy as 1,2,3 as long as there's true love, without understanding the issue that there's Two totally different individuals with different upbringings, beliefs and opinions coming together; being joined in matrimony in the hope of a exciting and prosperous future.
The author argues and proves the concept that Love isn't enough, in which I'm sure individuals already married can testify that it takes commitment, and compromise to keep the marriage boat going. There will be times when you will have to pick up the slack for your partner, excuse their bad days, putting yourself last numerous times.
The fundamental belief incorporated within the pages, is that the reason most marriages fail is due to poor planning and understanding of their partners needs, love language and personality.
While in the "love stage", being on cloud nine, we bypass any indication of conflict because we love everything about our person and only want to make them happy. It's not until we slowly come back to reality that we are exposed to traits that "annoy" us. On how different they are from us, on how their beliefs don't align with ours. The way they wish to raise kids, the type of house they want, how they spend and save money, or the most famous, leaving the toilet seat up when it's supposed to be down.
Things I wish I'd known before we got married is a marriage counselors experience and research over numerous years on now to nurture the marriage many desire.

This is a great book! I have been married 13+ years and enjoyed this book. The bottom line is when you are "in love" you don't think about the logical read flags/warning signs/words of wisdom shared with you. Marriage is HARD WORK, Cinderella isn't real. It is do-able, this marriage biz...but it is hard work! And you will compromise the majority of the time. If you are ever questioning your choices you are not a lone. Do the work! And hopefully you have a partner who is willing to work hard too.

My boyfriend and I have really enjoyed this book. We bought 2 copies after one of our married friends suggested it to us. It's an easy read, the language is digestible. Please keep in mind that the problems that are mentioned in this book aren't things you have to solve in a day! They're simply things to think about and expect throughout your relationship, into engage tn and marriage.
