All these questions and many more can be answered by some great online resources which have been reviewed below.
|Romantics Guide To Popping The Question|
|1000 Questions for Couples|
Marriage, one of the biggest steps you will take in life and it all starts with popping that question. However just bending the knee and asking ‘Will you marry me?’ has been done so many times before everyone is looking for something new, creative and unique to make this occasion special and worth remembering the rest of your lives.
So with that in mind does “The Romantic’s Guide to Popping the Question” give you what you need to make an unforgettable marriage proposal?
Yes & no.
No, only because this book is not a do-it-yourself step by step guide because that would generate the most bland and non-unique proposals; this is a book for inspiration and ideas not cookie cutter clones.
To get these inspirational thoughts and ideas the book has 101 stories of unique and special proposals. Each is a gem of a story that will get you thinking about what really makes a marriage proposal special ranging from the expensive and elaborate to extremely low budget but equally as good.
In fact long after I had decided on what to put in this review I kept turning pages to see how the next story could possibly be more imaginative and creative but I kept hitting on great ones such as the horseback proposal with a different twist, the unique way to propose in a cinema and story number 13 had me just saying “wow!”.
Oh, and what gave this book and extra star for this review was the 25 WORST marriage proposals that horrified and amused at the same time. Reading these may in fact be more beneficial to your own plans than the good ones!
The only issue I have is the good stories are often too good but do not let this put you off. While these are the cream of the crop it is not something you need to top just some great food for thought when deciding what you want to do.
So if you are planning on proposing or know someone who is and might want to help them out this is an outstanding collection to inspire and motivate you to make it something brilliant and not bland!
If couples simply spent some time asking each other the questions that really matter, they’d greatly increase their chances of staying together.
If only they had spent some more time talking about the things that really matter and also the small things that can make all the difference the chance of a successful marriage would be far, far higher then before which is why this book can be so useful for couples on the verge of that commitment.
That being said is Michael Webb’s “1000 Questions for Couples” the right book to help you in this task?
To be brief, yes. This is a perfect book for this situation for a number of reasons beyond simply giving you questions to ask.
The questions start from lighter more fun ones covering things such as pets, vacations, food, well being and so forth and gradually builds up to the heavier meatier questions such as money, children, career, past and present relationships, religion, morals and even sex.
The amount of questions is exhaustive; I could not imagine any other question beyond what was in this book unless it was very unique and specific to your particular relationship.
It also does not beat around the bush, you get what you pay for and there is no fluff to pad out the book just what you need to know put forth in a way to ease into the bigger questions from the smaller fun ones which I appreciate.
There is also a cute bonus where you can have the ability to deliver 3 to 5 of the questions to your email every day. If 1000 questions sounds too much to handle then this might be a better way to make it more manageable and be able to do this on autopilot!
There is very little I can say that is negative about this book, it does what it says it will do and you can not ask more than that. I do feel though that some more general chapters about marriage, engagement and relationships could have been added to illustrate the points of the questions but maybe I am nitpicking here.
This is a guide that you get the most out of by using it not as a bible but as a good way to inspire you to find out everything you need to know to make sure they are the right one for you to marry. It is also useful for any couple who may want to explore each other and become closer or as a dating resource for those looking for more topics to talk about when on a date too.
