Before and after you say I do!
Marriage counselor and therapist offers guide to building and maintaining a successful marriage: Before & After You Say I Do
Author and therapist Edwena B. Kirby asserts that few people prior to their nuptials fully understand the amount of work needed to sustain a successful marriage.
Dr. Kirby believes it is imperative that both partners explore their respective pasts, the familial and romantic relationships and experiences that shaped them, in order to fully understand their present needs and desires.
In, Before & After You Say I Do, Dr. Kirby provides readers with a technique for self-examination as well as a partner assessment in order to determine areas of fulfillment. Packed with activities for helping people select criteria for a lifetime partner, the book aims to give readers a clearer understanding of what marriage entails. Dr. Kirby hopes to empower couples to feel confident in their decision to get married. "The exercises provided in the book will enable participants to understand self-reflection as well as assume responsibility for creating their own future happiness," she says.
