What I Wish I'd Known before I Got Married

What I Wish I'd Known before I Got Married Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Building a marriage is a lifelong endeavor for both men and women. Most marriage books cover the three C's--communication, compromise, and consideration — but fail to address many issues critical to a healthy relationship. Family advocate Kay James calls these the "things I wish I had known before I got married": advice on finances, sex, children, and dealing with the extended family. Noting that the apostle Paul exhorted older women not to inspire or counsel younger women, but to teach them how to be wives to their husbands, Kay offers a lifetime's wealth of wisdom for creating an unbreakable marriage relationship.

She was previously a senior fellow at the Heritage Foundation, a leading educational institute based in Washington, D.C. Mrs. James also served on the board of directors at Focus on the Family ministries and speaks to groups across the nation. She is married to Charles Sr., and they have three children.
