Following the runaway success of the best-selling book, Between Husband and Wife, thousands of parents, bishops, stake presidents, and counselors have asked for a book about dating and courtship for younger members of the Church. First Comes Love is that book.
With insight, wisdom, and wit, Drs. Brinley and Ogletree write about:
- Preparing for marriage now
- Maintaining an eternal perspective
- Becoming the “right” person before you find the “right” person
- Planning to marry in the temple
- Intimacy in marriage
- Practical money management practices
- Preparing for marital differences
- And much more
As President Gordon B. Hinckley said, “The most important step you have made or will make in your life is marriage. Its consequences are many, so important and so everlasting. No other decision will have such tremendous consequences for the future.” For couples who are seriously dating or are already engaged, First Comes Love will provide needed perspective and will help prepare anyone for the tremendous blessings and inevitable challenges of marriage.
