It’s been pretty quiet around here because I’ve been back in the lab, coming up with some new material! Before the Altar: 150 Questions Every Engaged Couple Needs to Ask is my new guide to help empower couples to make good decisions before they walk down the aisle.
Why did I come up with this? See an excerpt from the book’s introduction below.
I’m about to give you some bad news (but there’s good news to come, I promise).
Regardless of what you’ve seen all of your life in the movies, love won’t find a way.
Love, like life, while powerful, is really just a shapeless, motionless blob. In fact the whole premise of Making Love in the Microwave is that love is in the doing. You cannot expect love to just “happen” forever. Love won’t make a way. You have to make a way for it.
Now, the good news: You are in the best possible position to create your love story.
Right now, everything that your marriage will be is in front of you. Once you are five, ten, twenty years in, your marriage has already taken a shape. Many of your relationship patterns have already been established. That’s not to say that you can’t adjust after you get there, but it’s a lot harder to stop a rock that’s already rolling the wrong way down a hill than it is to push it in the right direction in the first place.
As an engaged couple, you are standing at the top of the hill. The rock is in your hands. And with the right knowledge, you will gain the power to decide which way you want it to go.
What I aim to do in Before the Altar is identify some of the most common conflict areas in marriage, and through multiple questions sections pinpoint the essential questions couples need to ask before they walk down the aisle. With a wrap up activity at the end of each section and free workbook, Before the Altar is designed for couples of all backgrounds to not only ask the hard questions, but to use the information learned to give their marriage the best possible outcome.
Now the great news: Before the Altar won’t be released officially on Amazon until Valentine’s Day, but now through Valentine’s Day you can pre-order the e-book for only .99 cents and have it automatically delivered to your Kindle (or other device) on Valentine’s Day. And you can scoop up my first book, Making Love in the Microwave: A Busy Couple’s Guide to a Great Marriage, for only .99 cents between February 7 and February 14.
