Secrets of Success

To The Couples Who Are Engaged~




I post this as something that worked for my hubby& myself[having been married 12 years now with one child].When we were engaged,my hubby-to-be bought a 'GETTING READY FOR MARRIAGE "WORKBOOK--How to really KNOW the person you're going to marry by Jerry D.Hardin & Dianne C.Sloan.It has you fill out questionaires about money,sex,attitudes,beliefs,yo
ur family backgrounds,family planning & children among other topics. The idea is COMMUNICATION~you each fill out the questionnaires separately...

More Information:

then DISCUSS THEM! We felt that the "baggage" each person brings into the marriage-especially attitudes toward saving/spending $,to have kids or not and how we each resolve conflict were IMPORTANT ENOUGH to DISCUSS IN DEPTH BEFORE THE "I DOs"! It served as a helpful guide for us & may help others!
