A Decision to Love: A Marriage Preparation Program : Couple’s Book (Best in Marriage and Baptism Preparation)

I would give five stars to the authors John and Susan Midgley. The chapters are very short and easy to read and very much to the point. The His and Hers questions pages do stimulate easy discussion between couples and I have had many positive remarks from my wedding couples. I describe this workbook as an aid to communications which does allow the couple to learn more about each other in a painless way. I use this book because I do not require a marriage prep course and because many people do not want to or cannot for one reason or another attend Pre-Cana meetings. I hope this book is restocked since I will probably be ordering a dozen copies in the near future. If your marrying or just married or participating in a pre-marriage program, this book will augment any other materials nicely.

  2. Great pre-marriage workbook This book was required for the pre-marriage program my husband and I took prior to our marriage. Although many of the questions in this book are those which you talk about prior to marriage, some were presented in ways we had never looked at before. The book is divided into a number of sections. Each section has a write up, as well as a his and her page to fill out and discuss. There is then general questions to discuss with each other and within the pre-marriage group. We spent a lot of time…

  3. A Decision to Love Recommended to me by a Canadian Redemptorist whose parish in Saskatoon utilizes it, we have offered this program in our Indiana Parish for three years now, and agree that it is excellent It is a wonderful tool which touches on all the important “basics” of beginning a life together. Our lead Marriage Prep couple tell me they have learned a thing or two themselves!
