Before You Get Engaged offers priceless advice and direction for daters who are considering popping (or answering) the big question. Author and counseling pastor David Gudgel teams with his son, Brent, and Brent's girlfriend, Danielle, using anecdotes, dialogue, and diary entries to discuss the twelve relational indicators indispensable to a healthy, lasting marriage, including:
- Would you marry you?
- Are you spiritually connected?
- Are you better together than apart?
- Have you considered what God has to say?
Complete with fun and endearing proposal tips as well as ways to gently ask your significant other for more time, Before You Get Engaged will equip you with the insight, confidence, and peace to make one of the biggest decisions of your life.

A graduate of Westmont College, Talbot Theological Seminary, and Western Seminary, Dr. Gudgel has been in vocational ministry for thirty-five years. He and his wife Bernice have three twentysomething children: one married, one not, and one (Brent) thinking seriously about it.
FabsEdmonton, ABAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5November 11, 2011FabsEdmonton, ABAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I happened to find this book while looking for a different book but don't regret buying it! Was not sure how much I'd get out of it as I've read a couple before getting married books but of them all this has asked the best questions. I've been in a relationship for almost a yr and it opened my eyes to all the things that need work and improvement. I strongly encourage you to read this is if you are in a relationship where getting engaged is a possibility.
Crystal2 Stars Out Of 5April 5, 2010CrystalThis book was well written but I felt that it was not the best for my fiance' and I. He read all of it and I read parts of it before we got engaged, but it seemed to cause more frustration and anxiety than it helped. I think it could be beneficial for some couples, but we found other books that held more of an encouraging tone and benefited us greatly.
Mallory3 Stars Out Of 5March 16, 2009MalloryThis book may not be for every pre-engaged couple. The book was written very well. It was just not for our relationship, we already established our spiritual foundation. The book might have cause me to start unnessary arguments, so i put it away. Our relationship has never been better
Kaile5 Stars Out Of 5March 11, 2008KaileI absolutely loved this book. My boyfriend and I have been reading it to get ready for our engagement and ultimately our marriage. We have found support in this book. The questions it asks and the first hand perspective of the author's son and his girlfriend are amazing.
