You know you're in love--you always want to be together, and you think about each other all the time--but does that mean you're ready to get married? How do you decide if your relationship is strong enough for marriage?
William P. Smith gives you a series of questions based on biblical principles that you can use to assess your relationship's strengths and weaknesses. Answering these questions about your vision, goals, and potential conflicts will help you decide together whether you should slow your relationship down or move forward toward marriage. This booklet is a great resource for pastors and others to use during premarital counseling or classes.
