As you stand on the cusp of marriage, you’re probably wondering about important topics such as sex, in-law relationships, and conflict resolution. Would you guess that these same issues come up when married couples are having trouble later? So basically, expect to discuss them either proactively with your fiancé(e) now . . . or years into your marriage when they have turned into problems!
Sean Perron and Spencer Harmon, along with their wives, Jenny and Taylor, are here to help you get these conversations started. They have written several letters to guide you through your engagement, from your proposal to your wedding night. Each one is short, practical, and relevant, and contains discussion questions to help you apply it even more personally.
God’s Word, and the guidance of mentors who can open it with you, are the best source of clarity during your engagement—and, in these letters, that’s exactly what you will find.
