He loves you... you love her... but can you talk? This book covers the issues that often cause marital conflicts and the questions couples must know the answers to before they make a commitment. These questions sound simple... but if it's so simple, then why are they often left unasked? So often, relationships fail because of unrealistic expectations and disappointments caused by wishful thinking. These could have been avoided if couples were practical enough to realize that marriage is so much more than just love. There's living too.
An Excerpt from the book:
True Love… it’s the most wonderful human emotion and one of the most elusive. We search for it, trying to find that one person in the whole world worthy enough to spend our lives with. When you look at the trail of broken hearts, the rivers of tears and the broken dreams, it’s quite obvious that it’s not an easy dream to achieve. Don’t we rightly call it the Quest for Love? That’s why when we think we’ve found the right person, we are giddy with happiness and relief. Finally! The answer to our prayers has come after such a long wait. We are safe. We are loved.
A lot of women view marriage this way and I blame that on all the Walt Disney cartoons we watched as little girls. There’s this beautiful helpless princess locked away in a castle and here comes this handsome prince to save her from her miserable life. Classic. Then, after the grand wedding ball, the movie ends with:
“And They Lived Happily Ever After”
That’s it? What happened afterwards? Nothing’s mentioned about that. We are made to think that it all ends there, that the couple’s happiness is secured and a
given. They love each other, right? They went through all that trouble just to be together. So they’ll be happy. End of story."
Is it? Marriage is only the beginning.
Can you ask your loved ones these questions? What will you learn? Don't you want to know?
Don't leave love to chance. Plan your happily ever after.
