Things I Wish I'd Known Before We Got Married

Gary Chapman

Overview

No one gets married hoping to get divorced a few years later. Couples walk down the aisle expecting a fairytale ending and a lifetime of happiness. Yet the divorce rate in modern Western culture hovers around 50% – most of them happening within the first seven years. So how do we prevent ourselves from joining this statistic?

When it comes to marriage, the stakes are high. But the benefits of proper preparation beforehand are even higher. Whether you're a singleton or in a serious relationship, this guide is the perfect how-to for deciding if and when you're ready to commit to forever with someone.

If Gary Chapman's name isn't ringing a bell, then his work probably will. The Five Love Languages has been on the New York Times Bestseller List since 2009. Chapman has also been a relationship counselor for more than 40 years. In Things I Wish I'd Known Before We Got Married, he unpacks the factors that people often forget to consider before they say 'I do'.
