“The exercises and suggestions in this book are invaluable for married couples. My husband and I bring it out from time to time just to discuss the material and do a couple of the exercises. We’ve learned so much about each other that we wouldn’t have learned any other way!” ~ Married Couple
“My husband was somewhat skeptical when I suggested we try the exercises in Pure Gold. After all, we’re newlyweds! We hadn’t been together long enough to have any problems. But he ‘went along’ anyway, probably to make sure we continue to ‘get along.’ What a bounty! We discovered that the exercises in Pure Gold opened up new topics and gave us the tools to discuss difficult issues BEFORE they became problems. It has greatly enhanced our consultations. We have given the book to newlywed friends and others contemplating marriage. Try it!” ~D. Rodgers
