About the Book

How many times have you said to yourself, “If only I could have a do over with what I know now.” In the process of living, you have learned many valuable lessons that, had you known earlier, would have had an impact on your decision making. An important area of life that concerns many people is marriage. Failed marriages are very painful because often in retrospect the parties come to realize what could have been if only they had been more thoughtful in choosing. For those who have experienced the anguish of a failed marriage or those who wish to enter into a fulfilling marriage, learning from your own experience or that of others can help you in choosing a spouse. This book presents important questions that should be carefully considered before getting married. The questions are derived from my observations as a pastor counseling many couples both before and after marriage. Candid answers to these questions will give you critical information, which, if taken into consideration prior to the marriage, will lead to better decision making and ultimately fewer divorces.

About the Author

Edwin C. Bass has served as the Senior Pastor of The Empowered Church, Church of God in Christ for thirty years. He has also served at times as Senior Vice President, Sales & Marketing, for Alliance Blue Cross Blue Shield as well as Chief Operating Officer of the Church of God in Christ, Inc.
In each role, he has witnessed the devastating effect on marriages when partners fail to communicate fully prior to entering the marriage covenant. On the other hand, he has observed that when partners start out the marriage with open communication, they have set the standard for how they will communicate throughout the marriage. He is committed to providing pre-marriage counseling that facilitates intentional, in-depth communication between individuals contemplating marriage.
