Product Description

Product Description

Romantic Times, Feb. 2001
"Filled with plenty of insight, THEN COMES MARRIAGE is a touching and entertaining read."

Library Journal, 2-2001
"Capture(s) the nuances between male and female points of view as they explore the opinions shaping a marriage."

Book Description
This humorous novella looks at a young couple who reaches their first anniversary to discover that marriage is not what they anticipated. They are forced to take a close and sobering look at their own behavior, at their marriage--and what marriage is really all about. A light-hearted AND serious look at the roller coaster ride of marriage.

From the Back Cover
This idea of a romantic gift is a truck? Excuse me if I’m not thrilled to pieces. It’s been exactly one year since Heather and Kurt Stone exchanged wedding vows. A photo collage? For crying out loud! She knew I was hoping for golf clubs!
They’d planned to celebrate. Instead, they’re fighting. Not about the gifts they got—those are just added proof of what’s become apparent with time: how little each person understands the other. How could this perfect match turn out so wrong?

As a furious Heather unloads her marital woes to her mother, a bewildered and resentful Kurt heads for the racquetball court to vent his frustration. Now the real issue emerges: Kurt is a man and Heather is a woman. How can two people wired so differently ever hope to become one flesh?

Or could the strength of their union lie in their very differences?

Best-selling authors Bill Myers and Angela Hunt spin a warm, humorous, and insightful tale of young matrimony. From both a man’s and a woman’s point of view, here is the rose of marital bliss, complete with thorns. As Heather and Kurt individually revisit the befores and afters of their wedding, they strengthen their commitment and begin to redefine their love in wiser, less selfish terms.

Their awakening to the realities of marriage and their coming to terms with each other’s uniqueness are the story of every husband and wife. Lovingly crafted, Then Comes Marriage is a delightful novella filled with fond memories for seasoned couples, and wisdom and encouragement for newlyweds.

About the Authors

In this warm, humorous, and insightful tale of young matrimony, told from both a man's and a woman's point of view, a young couple awakens to the realities of marriage and comes to grips with each other's uniqueness. Lovingly crafted, here is the story of every husband and wife.

Format:Hardcover
This book, detailing a couple's first year of marriage (complete with highs and lows) is the perfect wedding or anniversary gift. Both men and women will enjoy reading and learning from the sometimes-funny, sometimes tender story of a man and woman written by a man and woman. It's a short, active read, and should appeal even to guys who "don't read." (And don't forget the audio book--it's even more entertaining!)

1.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't finish the book May 9 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book because I thought it was a romantic comedy. The book description called this a humerous novella. I stopped reading at chapter 9, so maybe the humor part picks up after that, but I did not laugh or chuckle once. I found myself continually sighing and going really?

I read a lot of books and this was one of the rare books that I just couldn't finish. It just kept dragging on. I kept finding myself saying "If you don't like that about the other person then maybe you did rush into getting married." and "How did you not know that before you got married?" I finally stopped reading the book when I realized I was rooting for them to end things.

One last thing... one of the reviews said that this was a great book for men and women. Ladies, do not be fooled. Unless your husband enjoys knitting and reading romance novels he will most likely not enjoy this.

1.0 out of 5 stars Could not relate July 24 2011
By Erin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having just celebrated my one year anniversary with my husband, I thought this would be an entertaining read. This was one of the worst books I have read in a very long time. I was just so disappointed by it. I could not relate at all to the needy, whiny, senseless female character. I couldn't even remember half-way through it what the two of them had a fight about in the first place that caused her to run crying to her parents house. I think this character was supposed to be in her mid to late 20's but the way she dealt with any issues in her relationship made me feel as if I was looking into the life of an emotional teenager. I didn't feel this was an accurate portrayal of a modern marriage at all. The actual writing and flow of the story was fine, I guess I just could not get past the annoying characters. I read it on the subway on my commute to work in about 2 days so at least it went by quickly.

Angela Hunt is a great writer. Everything she's written is well done, so I never have to worry about finding sloppy style in her books. She has a knack for writing fiction that has a lighthearted flavor but, but always with a purposeful message. This short fiction piece is fun to read but packs a powerful and very valuable piece of marital advice. I recommend it highly to all young marrieds, and those moving into that blissful state.
