This book is based on the experience of the Author as a Divorce Mediator, Counsellor/Psychotherapist and a Professional Practice Consultant for the U. K. College of Family Mediation. Susan Jane Smith's over 20 years of listening to individuals and couples about their relationships are what makes this book a useful self-assessment tool for couples.

If your partner is not willing to go through the quizzes and answer the questions alarm bells need to be ringing! A marriage is so much more than the wedding day. The discussions you have when you are all 'loved-up' can set the foundations for the future and you need to build that future on solid information about each other.

Instead of just having fun or great sex or shared interests why not take a look at each other's character traits? The old saying does still hold true that you need to take a look at your partner's parents are:- Do you like their values? How they live? Would you want that for your children? People do tend to do what their parents did. The worst assumption is that your partner will always want what you want.

How are your negotiating skills as a couple? Do you both work towards win/win when there is a disagreement or does one person try to bully the other into getting their own way? If the latter think long and hard before you proceed into marriage or even living together.

How is your partner with children - observe to see if you like how they behave and the words that they use. Would you want that for your own children?

The material in the book is designed to get the two of you talking about the issues that matter in the long term.
