Chapter 1 In this helpful eBook, we begin by discovering the nature of romance by comparing the definition of a Christian marriage to the single life. The Bible makes it clear that both are equally valid options for human beings. Being single even has some advantages when it comes to serving God. Most people, however, do have a natural urge to find a spouse who will be their loyal and loving partner through life.
Chapter 2 For those who have decided that they would like to experience the love and companionship of marriage, this chapter takes a look at dispelling some of the marital myths that have left the modern Western world with such a high divorce rate. These myths are corrected in order to give you a more realistic view of a long-term relationship. We also offer some solid advice for a healthy Christian marriage.
Chapter 3 This eBook continues by correcting false assumptions about relationships, offering future guidance for Christian marriages. First, we explain that even if you do find the perfect spouse, it doesn’t mean the two of you will live "happily ever after." This chapter explains everything that you need to know before tying the knot, including getting to know yourself as an individual before being able to give yourself completely to someone else.
Chapter 4 Once you have prepared yourself for marriage and have taken the leap, we give you a guide for the types of issues you may expect once you are married. We cover communication issues, intimacy problems, financial difficulties, religious differences, and other conflicts. Being prepared is one of the best tools you can have for quickly and successfully resolving them whenever they surface.
Chapter 5 There are many reasons why people choose to get married. This chapter takes a hard look at some of the most common reasons and explores what happens if you get married for the wrong reasons. In fact, it may even be difficult for some people to understand the meaning of a Christian wedding beyond just “getting married”. We offer several questions that you can ask yourself in order to find out if your reasons are good or bad.
Chapter 6 Finally, we will provide you with an overview of the concept of compatibility. Here we discuss why compatibility is so essential to a marriage, and we provide you with some important questions that you can ask yourself in order to find out if you and your fiancé truly are compatible.
