Marrying Well: The Clinician’s Guide to Premarital Counseling​

By Elena Lesser Bru’un and Anne F. Ziff






Here’s a book you can go to and enjoy learning from, clinician or not.  It’s chock full of stories, examples, and guidelines about meeting, dating, and perhaps marrying your special person.  How do you know if what you feel is love?  Is it just curiosity? Or pressure?

Marrying Well opens your eyes and helps you avoid making mistakes. Be sure to see Chapter Eight’s “Eight Premarital Stages” as you figure out where your couple is, and what you want to avoid, as well as learn.

Explore the factors that predict a satisfying relationship (a marriage, if you choose).

Take advantage of the opportunity to learn about Premarital agreements in a very positive light.

This is a warm, humorous, set of tales about the things you want to know as you develop your own relationship.  Go for it! Buy the book at Amazon.
