I absolutely love this book, but I am discerning about who I suggest to read it. I am a youth worker, and I definitely feel the frustration with the current generation of young people. Delayed adolescence is a very real problem in our society.
We also married young, while I was still in college & my wife had just graduated. Nearly 10 years later, our marriage is stronger than ever. The prevailing "wisdom" in our society, and our church, is that immediately following high school, you must go to college. Only after college can your real life begin. If a couple, who is strong in their faith & truly understands what love, commitment, and sacrifice are; then I see no reason why they should delay in marrying.
However, I do use this book with caution. Marriage REQUIRES responsibility & sacrifice. It's simply not an option to be selfish & immature within a marriage relationship. While I completely agree that marriage can push individuals to a place of self sacrifice & servant-hood, I also believe that there are some who are simply too immature to be married.
Before buying this book for yourself, you must consider your own maturity level. Same can be said in regards to buying this book as a gift. An immature, lazy person who gets married will most likely be an immature, lazy married person. And marriages where one or both spouses are immature and lazy tend not to end well.

I purchased this for my sons. They are 17 & 18 years old. They told me that it had useful information and completed it in two days! We will recommend this to our friends.
