Imagine fun-filled dates that actually teach relationship skills you'll use once you're married. Want to learn about the differences between men and women while you peruse the shelves at the movie rental store? How about realizing your role in the marriage by planning and preparing a meal together?
Like the format used in the Arps' previous book, 10 Great Dates to Energize Your Marriage, a short date "launch" using the book primes the pump for a series of fun, enriching, and energizing dates. Couples will soon discover whether or not to go to the next level of commitment, and will spend quality time together now while preparing for a great marriage in the future.
Each date's theme is based upon research of the best and most-used marriage preparation topics, interpersonal inventories, and courses. Counselors, clergy, and marriage counselors will use this book as an add-on resource in programs such as Foccus, Prepare, PREP, SYMBIS, and Marriage Savers. Couples will use 10 Great Dates before You Say "I Do" to practice the skills they're learning in these courses -- and have a lot of fun doing it!
