Back cover copy

You are preparing for a life journey, not just a wedding. Everyone is looking for happiness and love, and many of us experience them through the covenant of marriage. Young adults especially dream about experiencing this kind of love; however, they often misunderstand its true meaning and lack the attitudes and skills needed for successful relationships. Today's marriages experience a lot of difficulties that marriage of the past did not. This booklet will help couples begin their journey from courtship to married life and support them during their first years of marriage, drawing on the experience of many married and engaged couples. The first section focuses on choosing a partner and building a happy relationship. The second section focuses on building a life-long, holy marriage and answers twelve questions commonly asked by couples. Father German Martinez holds a doctoral degree from the University of St. Anselm in Rome. He is an associate professor of systematic theology and sacramental liturgy at the Graduate School of Religion and Religious Education of Fordham University, New York, and the author of five books. Through his university and leadership work, he has dedicated himself to marriage research and the renewal of a contemporary vision to build successful marriages.show more
