"Marriage Minded is uplifting and positive. It steers women in the right direction for what to look for in a partner and how to create a happy, lasting marriage. This book is light but certainly not lightweight. A wealth of thoughtful information is presented in small bits, which makes this book very reader friendly."
--Linda Bloom, coauthor of 101 Things I Wish I Knew When I Got Married

"This is the most important book to come out on dating and marriage and certainly long overdue. I am buying it to give to so many people who will benefit from its wisdom. It addresses so many different aspects of dating, marriage, and it does so in a language that is both elegant yet so relevant. I wish it could be required reading for college students as well. They certainly need the sage advice and common sense coaching it presents."
--Sarah Karmely, marriage educator and counselor and author of Words to Hear with Your Heart and Stories to Hear with Your Heart

"As an attorney/mediator who has helped couples 'un-hitch' for thirty years, I've seen how most people don't have the skills to maintain a long-lasting, loving marriage. Marriage Minded gives women excellent advice, helpful examples, and important steps into becoming happily married. Author Marcia Naomi Berger, an expert therapist, shows you what it takes to create a lifelong love affair."
--Mari Frank, Esq., coauthor of Fighting for Love: Turn Conflict into Intimacy - A Couple's Guide

"Berger's writing is professional and informative. She offers knowledge of relationships, self-psychology, and inner awareness. Her tone gives the reader a sense of talking with a wise and trusted friend at their kitchen table. This book is relevant to both men and women, single and married. Marriage Minded deserves to be displayed in the front of bookstores."
--Dorie Rosenberg, Marriage and Family Therapist
