Helping Singles Find Each Other and Prepare for Marriage
101 Tips for Marrying the Right Person has 101 bite-sized tips that will help you approach dating and courtship with confidence and joy. In addition to that, it will also help you become the best version of yourself--- someone who is ready to be married. Get inspiration and advice that will help you find a mate and build a strong relationship.
Some of the tips include:
- When you are on the first date or in a relationship, see the other person for who they are, instead of thinking that you can change him or her; only God can bring about change.
- Do not expect the other person to be perfect when you know that you yourself are not.
- If you are interested or in a relationship with someone who isn't Catholic, have an open discussion about how you each expect faith to impact your relationship, and potential marriage.
Dating doesn’t happen in a vacuum. The authors boldly address the challenges that single Catholics face in this modern world. They acknowledge the strong temptation to acquiesce to the hook-up and cohabitation culture since it is so dominant everywhere in our society. You are not weak for being interested in these options, but God has given you the strength to resist them.
This book is filled with life-changing ideas via short, practical suggestions that will help you find a mate and build a strong relationship.
