Ryan Strother4 Stars Out Of 5September 13, 2007Ryan StrotherI'm a pastor and I'm actually using this book as the main text for marriage counseling with a couple. It covers the main topics necessary for marriage counseling, but allows the discussion of those topics to be done in a much more creative way than usual. The couple is enjoying it.The dates are not the most important part of this book. In fact, the suggestion they give for the dates are mostly things like "go to a place you can talk." They don't give wild date ideas, but the book reinforces the idea of having fun while talking through some sensitive and important issues.For something different, it's worth it!
