What is the one thing that every man must consider before marriage? The one thing is actually two things. Does this woman have a real faith in God, a real relationship with God? And what was her family like? You marry the in-laws in that you either pay for the dysfunction that was in that family or you reap the benefit of the great teaching and modeling within that family.
What is the one thing that every woman must consider before marriage? This would be the same answer for the woman – does this man have a real faith in God, a real relationship with God? And what was his family like?
You have written both "Have A New Kid by Friday" and "Have A New Husband by Friday." Is there a "Have A New Wife by Friday" book in the works? From my lips to God’s ears, you will never see “Have a New Wife by Friday”. I value my life. I’ve been married for 45 years in a row. Actually, the “Have a New Wife” material is found in the book “Have a New Husband by Friday”.
What is the best thing about being a grandparent? The spontaneity of the loving relationship that doesn’t get bogged down with the minutia of life – bedtimes, homework, disciplines issues. We’re blessed to have our grandchildren one mile from us. My advice to young parents is to live as close to one set of grandparents as possible.
