Things I wish I'd Known Before We Got Married

“People do not get married planning to divorce. Divorce is the result of a lack of preparation for marriage and the failure to learn the skills of working together as teammates in an intimate relationship.” 


“Often we fail to consider the fact that our social, spiritual, and intellectual interests are miles apart. Our value systems and goals are contradictory, but we are in love.” 


“The decision to get married will impact one’s life more deeply than almost any decision in life. Yet people continue to rush into marriage with little or no preparation for making a marriage successful. In fact, many couples give far more attention to making plans for the wedding than making plans for marriage. The wedding festivities last only a few hours, while the marriage, we hope, will last for a lifetime” 


These quotes are from the book, ‘Things I wish I’d known Before We Got Married’ by Gary Chapman, the author of the 5 Love Languages and there are many more words of wisdom in this book. For the next 3 days, you stand a chance to get your hands on a copy courtesy of Hidden Treasures Bookstores.

I want this book to help me equip mysef for the future so that I dnt make mistakes that I would later regret in life but rather have a marriage that would be like Heaven on earth.

    Have been married for 3 years 8months,I wish I have known much than just choosing my hubby base on his faith. I choose to marry my hubby because he was a commited born again christian, I taught as a good christain, my marriage will be heaven on earth. After marriage, I notice my hubby can give,show much attenion, stand by a brother or sister outside but does not do same with me. He can give his last to anybody just to encourage their faith but will ask me to build/work my salvation. This I fill is wrong because the bible said the wife comes first. I will love to own this book because I have 4 sisters that are yet to marry and believers, I don’t want them to make same mistake and will love to know what I don’t know about marriage so I can enjoy every bit of my marriage. Thanks


We'd love to hear from you
