12 Main Topics Married Couples Need to Know


Catholic couples today desperately need a transfusion of spiritual truths combined with solid practical advice. The Vatican identified the most crucial topics that couples need to know in its document Preparation for the Sacrament of Marriage -- and our marriage advice book, The Four Keys to Everlasting Love, covers every single one. Each of the book's twelve chapters focuses on a different essential area of concern including:
  • personality differences,
  • sacramentality,
  • dealing with in-laws,
  • work/life balance,
  • finances,
  • community service,
  • sexuality,
  • fertility,
  • special family circumstances,
  • parenting,
  • prayer, and
  • imitating the Holy Family.

As far as we know, there is no other book or program
that addresses all these essential areas.

  1. I don't buy many books because I find our library to be the best resource, but this may just be on my wish list! ;)

    1. You can request that your library buy the book for its collection, Lis. They're happy to get the requests and more likely to fulfill them than you might think!
