I ordered the eBook, it is useless without the Workbooks. Unfortunately the Workbooks are only available in print version making the eBook useless! The Woorkbooks need to be made available as eBooks too

My fiance and I had both been through painful divorces and were determined not to make the same mistakes again. This book and the workbooks that go along with it are the best investment of time and effort we have made in our life together. After completing the books, we were confident and ready for marriage. We can't say enough good things about these books, and have bought them for others about to be married (the Parrotts have another book "Saving Your Marriage Before It Starts" for those marrying for the first time) The exercises and questionnaires included are challenging and engaging, and you should take the time to do all of them. We were almost sad when we completed the books because it was such a great time of sharing and understanding each other -- we didn't want that closeness to end! We have continued to implement the principles from this book into our marriage and have enjoyed two wonderful years together. Please, please, please -- do yourself a favor and go through this book before getting married a second time. It will make all the difference in the world!

This is an excellent book by Les and Leslie Parrott. I am a widow, and now I will be marrying someone in the near future. This book has helped me think of different ways that we can be stronger in our second marriage. Also we both have young children, so we will have to learn how to blend our family as one unit. Marriage is a lifetime commitment, and I will be married to this wonderful man for the rest of my life. With God's guidance, I have faith that it will be a marriage that will last. Through thick or thin, good or bad, through sickness and in health. Our love for each other will conquer anything.

I ordered this for my step daughter and her fiance. My husband and I did it before we married and I thought it was great. It gets you to talk about the important stuff before you marry.

Excellent resource! I recommend this book to anyone considering remarriage or have recently remarried. We use this book to teach our premarital classes at our church for second marriages.

This book and workbook set was a wonderful way to help work through our past and prepare for our future. Our marriage is being formed after a divorce and death and involves four small children. This book covered issues in detail and in real everyday terms. We would recommend it to EVERYONE similar situations.

Very good book. Helps you focus on a lot of issues you probably would not consider. The workbooks are wonderful to give you meaningful conversations and comparing notes is a lot of fun. Brings reality in your face.
