Helping Engaged Couples Fight Divorce Rates, Dr. Angela Chester Explores The Universal, And Denominational Patterns That Govern Our Lives

Before You Tie the Sacred Knot by Dr. Angela B. Chester guides readers in premarital education from a do-it-yourself approach; second book in series is geared towards Christian couples.

 

LONG BEACH, Calif. – Before You Tie the Sacred Knot by Dr. Angela B. Chester provides readers with information and tools on how to effectively build a marriage that will last by discussing topics and concerns that cause the most apprehension towards marriage, as well as encourage continued compatibility.

 

According to studies done by Brigham Young University ‘the average person who participated in a premarital prevention program was significantly better off afterwards than 79% of people who did not participate. Stated differently, the average participant in a premarital program tends to experience about a 30% increase in measures of outcome success.’ But how does at home therapy work, and how can it be a smart and beneficial choice?  It starts the conversation from a different neutral perspective. The questions aren’t stated as an accusation so no one is forced to be defensive.


“This guide works to show readers how to ask the important questions about topics concerning relationships, finances, or parenting, while also giving them tools with chapters on conflict resolution and red flags,” says Dr. Angela Chester.  “Some young couples are more hesitant to get married because of recent divorce rates. When you empower the couples by discussing the uncomfortable subjects such as religion, children, money, and in-laws, you take the potential for a break down in the marriage away. By removing the veil they allow themselves to come to an agreed upon solution instead.” 

 

When asked about the Christian perspective of the book, Dr. Chester says, “Before You Tie the Sacred Knot (ISBN: 978-1304303349), includes biblical based exercises for both the bride and groom. Self-reflection is important for the individual and the Christian respectively.”  “One should never stop growing. One constant every marriage should have is continued betterment of self, your relationship and your walk of a Christian.”

 

Before You Tie the Sacred Knot is available for sale online at Amazon.com and other channels, as well as it’s secular or non-Christian counterpart Before You Tie The Knot: A Counseling Workbook for the D.I.Y. Couple (ISBN:978-1304296986). Both books are featured on book tour from August 2014 to January 2015. Locations include Texas, Virginia and Vancouver.
