Book Overview

The Perfect Remedy for Cold Feet

More than half of all couples who become engaged this year will never make it to the altar. Why? Leading experts believe it's because couples fail to really get to know their potential mate before getting engaged. Relationship expert and noted couples counselor Norm Wright steers potential brides and grooms through a series of soul-searching questions to discern if they've really met the One.

Couples will be much more confident about whether or not to pursue marriage after completing these in-depth and personal questions. Norm also addresses the delicate subject of calling off the wedding if readers discover that a potential mate isn't actually meant to be a life partner.

   the books that I have not discussed with my girlfriend before buying the book are pretty eye opening
My girlfriend and I are currently going through this book together, he said. Some people mentioned the section at the beginning, but I think it was not the case for my girlfriend and I. None of the issues raised in the book caused us any problems, he said. Some of the questions are already discussed in the book. As a religious couple this book definitely places some emphasis on religion, which is great. If you are thinking about getting engaged, this book is for you.

   Good, Thought Provoking Questions
As a couple who has been surrounded by family members who are in mostly unhappy marriages, I can't be cautious enough into thinking we want to take the next step, she said. The book has provided us with a great layout of things to ask ourselves, Mr. Dhaliwal said.

   Good questions to ask if you haven't already; very conservative Christian point of view
It's a book that doesn't get into too many details, and I like that it speaks from commonsense. I did not realize how conservatively Christian the author is, which would be my only reservation in recommending this book. If that isn't your cup of tea, skip over some of those viewpoints and questions because otherwise it can be a valuable tool, Hollingworth said.

   LOVED IT!
It was great to be able to go over the questions with my fiancé, Taylor said. They really open doors to questions that you wouldn't think to ask or maybe feel uncomfortable to ask your partner about. It was an easier way to talk about the awkward questions and also brought up things that I didn't realize we talked about, Mr. Dhaliwal said. A great book, Gillian. It's great to have your ring in hand, even if you're engaged.

   I had this book recommended by a friend
I had this book recommended by a friend, but I only made it about a fifth of the way through. There are several questions that don't relate to every couple, and several that should have been thought about when you were thinking of getting engaged, Levine said.

   Fabulous tool
It helped my brother and sister-in-law to have heart-to-heart discussions early on in their relationship. It helped them to see they were indeed yoked. McCartney and Hurley have been married for several months. He passed this book on to another couple who greatly benefited from this book and are now enjoying a successful marriage. The book is being billed as the "relationship speeder-upper," a reference to how fast it took for two people to get married. One book says it helps you to determine if God has put you on similar life paths.

   Great book! Would reccommend for anyone that is considering ...
A great book, Gillian. Anyone that is considering getting married? Will the Force the questions you are either avoiding or forgot to ask?

   Great discussion questions
The book is a great read. He had not considered or discussed this with me in detail, he said. Some of the questions were more difficult to answer because they were written in various versions of the book. Note the subheading of this terrible parable in the "Love Letters" series, "Repurchased Book" for other couples who are considering marriage.

   Amazing Communication Book
My boyfriend and I finished this book in a month, we loved it so much. Before we got married, we told her to do our premarital planning and brought it to her. What she said is these are the things you discuss in premarital counseling so she didn't feel we needed to do as many sessions because we already had covered so much. The book has changed my mind about marriage, Taylor said. We got to know each other super well and it was fun too!!!!!!!!!!!!! It sparked conversations you wouldn't otherwise have and it was so important for both of us. Both of us are huge fans of the Harry Potter series.

   Superficial and Preachy
It's rather surprising that reviews for this book are so good, McBride said. As a Christian, I found it extremely difficult to find anything of value from this book. Most of the questions are common sense, and the text that explains it is self-evident, nothing that you couldn't have thought of yourself if you thought for a few seconds on the topic. If that wasn't the worst of it, some of the implicit advice is really bad and contradicts known truths, according to evolutionary psychologist John Gottman. This is rare, but I found it to be more common than hearing a useful suggestion. 0 9171781 This is rather common, but I found it to be more common than hearing a useful suggestion. Hearing the familiar, "Oh my!," "Amazing!" "They're just talking about how they got here," "was really annoying." I dont think I gained anything of value from this book, and cant recommend it.
