I've been looking for some good "pre-marital" books but can't find anything and the closest Barnes & Noble (or other book store) is over an hour away.. So I'm looking on Amazon right now.

Can any of you recommend any books to read? We are Christians & would love for it to be Christian based, but it doesn't HAVE to be. I'm open to anything that will help strengthen our relationship.

    Rick and Bubba's Guide to the Almost Nearly Perfect Marriage is a really good book! It started out as just a joke from his parents as our x-mas gift last year because FH nickname is Bubba but it actually is a really good book! I couldn't put it down when I started reading it. lol

    We are doing a course along with our pastor called "the marriage course" It's a DVD and booklet. It's been AMAZING! I was annoyed we had to do it at first, but i am SO glad we did. We understand each other more and are much closer because of it. Smiley smile

    Okay these are some of the ones I found on Amazon that I'm thinking about (definitely can't buy all of them)

    Have any of you read....

    -Saving Your Marriage Before it Starts

    -101 Things I Wish I Knew When I Got Married

    -Just Engaged: Prepare for Your Marriage before You Say "I Do"

    -Knowing Me, Knowing You: A Multiple-Choice Quiz for Engaged Couples

    ..the last one seems fun, but I don't know what kind of questions are asked, and if it would be beneficial since we've been together for 7 years and this isn't a "new" relationship.

    5 love languages! Love and Respect! Watch Fireproof the movie. Get a book with tons of random questions and go through a few each night before bed time! So fun and worth it!

    The Nest Newlywed Handbook....

    Technically, it's for after you're married, but I thought it was great for before!!

    Sooo funny! I just bought "Boundaries in Love" and "The Love Dare" on Friday! He's reading the book first and We will start the "Dare" after we get back from Vacation this next weekend. I work in a book store and can tell you "Love Dare" is a very, very popular book!
