|This is Vol 5 of the Basic Lessons Series covering the following topics:|
Marriage, Mating, Husband and Wife, Parenthood, Friendship, Recreation, Speech, Clothing and Eating, Asceticism, Managing your Finances
This is a little gem of a book because the first two chapters contain practical advice for singles contemplating marriage that is simply not found in other books offering counsel to singles. It covers topics like the gift of virginity, health, heredity, age, temperament, weaknesses, and character. Sexual attraction will tempt you into marriage but will not sustain it. Similar temperaments (eg. neatness) will reduce tension within a marriage, but similar (spiritual) weaknesses should be avoided. Recommended for those thinking about marriage and those who counsel singles.
