My husband and I started reading this book a week before we got married. It is very educational and helped us learn how to talk about intimacy. A must read for anyone getting, newly-weds, or married couples who haven't read it yet!
I recommend this book for those engaged and close to the wedding date, and for newlywed couples. It is a quick and easy read, and can really open up the lines of communications.
Before getting married and sometime after, we read this book together when we went on long road trips. It was a good way to open the lines of communication about our marriage.
I read this before getting married and I loved every bit. I think every couple should read it together prior to marriage. It's a great bridal shower gift as well.
