A Catholic Handbook for Engaged and New Married Couples

  • By Frederick Marks

Marriage has been variously described as a great work, a great adventure, a great responsibility, and a great joy. Author Frederick Marks' Catholic Handbook for Engaged & Newly Married Couples (Third Edition) supplies everything needed to make a marriage truly great in every way.

First introducing the nature of the sacrament of marriage, Marks then proposes ways that couples can grow closer emotionally and spiritually both before and after their wedding. Emphasizing "marriage preparation" over "wedding planning," the Catholic Handbook for Engaged & Newly Married Couples offers a mature perspective on the first years of marriage as well as family life, spirituality, and sexuality.

About the Author

Frederick Marks has lectured widely and taught courses on the fundamentals of the Catholic faith at both the university and parish level. He is the author of numerous articles and several books, including Think and Believe.


"If you are looking for some help to make your Catholic marriage the best it can possibly be, in my opinion, you will be amply rewarded by a careful reading and reflection on the Catholic Handbook for Engaged & Newly Married Couples and by having a frank discussion of it with your spouse."

--Fr. Kenneth Baker, S.J., former editor of Homiletics & Pastoral Review
