Reviews of You're Getting Married Soon... Now What? A Book for All Couples by Eeva Lancaster

Corrissa James reviewed on Aug. 29, 2015

This is an excellent guide for making you think about life after the honeymoon by answering questions about expectations, hopes, and where you draw the line. Although the questions target couples about to get married, they really are appropriate for anyone in a serious relationship. The questions are organized in a logical manner, and I was surprised by their depth and insights. They go beyond the typical superficial issues we might consider to ask thought-provoking questions about real-life issues. As the author states, it is important to "become an expert on your partner." Using this handy guide will help you do just that.

Out of curiosity, I picked this up. Later in my life and considering re-entering the dating pool, this book seemed like an interesting exercise. I can attest to the advice being sound, and I believe I will pass this on to my children as they get older.

In my youth, I already made a few of these mistakes. In marriage, most of our mistakes come in the form of conversations we didn't have soon enough. Had I seen how the deck was stacked against me, would I have gone through with the wedding? Having this book to guide the conversation takes some of the responsibility our of a single partner's hands and places it firmly in both. Very useful read.

This book is an easy to read guide to topics that every couple considering marriage should discuss. The book is written in a non-judgmental way, with easy to relate to examples. The author not only talks about topics that need to be discussed but why and how to discuss certain sensitive topics. I would highly recommend this book to any couple who are seeking marriage or a long term commitment. It would even make a great gift to give a couple at their engagement party. What better gift than the chance of a strong, committed marriage?

In this gem of a book Eeva Lancaster tackles the practical subjects that arise after marriage. She raises important questions like “where will we live” and “are we going to share household chores” or “how do you want to spend your free time” which might appear trivial but after marriage can test even the best of relationships. She also touches on subjects like sex, family planning, infertility and the problems that arise when couples share financial commitments.
Using a simple and honest approach Eeva Lancaster provides a wealth of information for couples stepping into marriage and also shares some of the problems she faced in her own marriage. I would hand this book as a wedding gift to every couple planning a life together. As Eeva Lancaster so aptly puts it, “You and your partner deserve to know what you are getting into…and knowing now is better than later”

You're Getting Married Soon...Now What? is one volume in Eeva Lancaster's 'Now What?' series. I was particularly interested in this book because my son recently got married and I wish I could have given him and his bride a copy before the wedding.

In You're Getting Married Soon...Now What?, Eeva Lancaster makes the case that while many happily engaged couples spend months or even years planning for the big event, the wedding, their time would be better spent planning for the bigger event, their marriage. Because after all the dust settles and the thank you notes are written, a couple has the rest of their lives together. In a nutshell, her point is that couples who wish to live 'happily ever after' need to clearly communicate realistic expectations for their marriage. She addresses topics such as basic practical concerns that come into play whenever two people live together, sex, family, and money, and each chapter includes a list of pertinent questions for couples to consider and discuss.

The main theme is that couples can take proactive steps to insure a happy and successful marriage by clearly communicating their thoughts, feelings, and expectations regarding the important issues. This is a terrific book for any couple considering marriage, but I also think that it could be used by an already-married couple who would like to grow improve their relationship. I'd definitely recommend this book. It would make a great workbook. Hmm...

Great, down to earth advice for anyone thinking about gettingmarried and a must read for newly engaged couples, or people thinking about getting engaged. The straight forward advice in a sometimes humorous, sometimes personal tone, keeps you turning pages because it feels like a friend talking to you. Someone you trust, who has maybe been through it themselves. I wish I had a guide like this when I was first thought of marriage. It would have made life so much easier.

You're Getting Married Soon... NOW WHAT? is a must have for anyone about to get married. Author Eeva Lancaster delves into the important questions that are necessary for any couple to explore. Couples that avoid such questions until a situation arises may find that they have incompatible viewpoints on important issues. While these questions may be uncomfortable it will set you on the right path for a loving and lasting relationship.

Understanding what role each will take in a marriage lessens the apprehension associated with not knowing and paves the way to a fulfilling relationship. Knowing what your partner is expecting in the bedroom, in regards to having a family, and the responsibility of money ensures no arguments will arise from these hot topics. I highly recommend it and will be giving it to all my friends!
