Ships from and sold by sweethomeliquid2. Anderson and his co-authors deal sensitively with the pastoral issues involved. Becoming Married explores the process of becoming married as more than just a wedding ceremony.

I own Anderson's entire Family Living in Pastoral Perspective series (Leaving Home, Becoming Married, Regarding Children, Promising Again, and Living Alone), and I refer to them frequently. Each book focuses on a different transitional event and the family tasks that event brings into focus.

Comments to eBook Becoming Married (FLPP)
Kuve
Every pastor should have Herb Anderson’s entire series on family systems through the life cycle (“Leaving Home” and “Regarding Children” complement “Becoming Married” for issues frequently encountered by young adults).

If you are only going to read one of the series, however, make it this one. “Becoming Married” offers clergy a clear framework for approaching premarital pastoral consultations, including instructions for creating genograms with the couple. I also use a premarital inventory with the couples I marry, but those inventories can only scratch the surface of the stories shared through the genograms.

The book holds out paradox and parable as a Christian alternative to the epic/myth/fairy tale that too many couples are looking for. It is a book that I’ve dog-eared and returned to time & again as I work with couples in wedding preparation.

Excellent resource for clergy, counselors and couples moviing toward marriage. Herbert Anderson makes use of Systems Theory for working with the family histories/dynamics and the developing marriage. One of the most helpful resources in this text is his presentation of a "marital habitus" which proposes that couples take their partner in abiding seriousness. That they consider the following attributes; sacrifice, justice, reconciliation, hospitality and joy as a schema for structuring their relationship. In an age when marital relationships are struggling this structure utilizing these attributes should provide a very healthy way of experiencing creative meaning and relational success.

I only purchased this book as it is required by the church that is to marry me and my fiancé. It is, however, a terrible book. It is so dry and boring that at points I nearly fell asleep. I do not recommend buying this book, especially if you do not HAVE to read it.

I own Anderson's entire Family Living in Pastoral Perspective series (Leaving Home, Becoming Married, Regarding Children, Promising Again, and Living Alone), and I refer to them frequently.
Each book focuses on a different transitional event and the family tasks that event brings into focus. Anderson and his co-authors deal sensitively with the pastoral issues involved.
Becoming Married explores the process of becoming married as more than just a wedding ceremony. Chapter one discusses how relationships must begin to be reordered before the wedding so that the couple's bond takes primacy over relationships with parents and friends. Chapter two introduces the genogram as a tool for exploring each person's family history in premarital counseling. Chapter three examines the wedding liturgy and ways to plan a meaningful wedding.
Chapter four covers several situations which can make the process of becoming married more complicated: interfaith marriages, interracial marriages, leftover or buried grief, living together before the wedding, and second marriages. Chapter five discusses post-wedding work and the nature of the marital bond. Finally, in chapter six the authors develop their theology of marriage.
All of the books are well-written and easy to read--no convoluted prose to parse here. The works have added texture from the many personal examples shared by the authors (both their own and examples others have shared with them).
Every book in the series deserves an honored place on any religious professional's shelf. Except, you may find them so valuable they rarely make it back to your shelf.

This is a text that I am going to read and re-read in the future so that I can better understand the dynamics of marriage.

This is the most helpful book on marriage I've ever read. Using Biblical and theological insights along with basic principles of family systems thinking, Anderson and Fite not only changed my understanding of my own marriage but they also helped me to be more effective in my work as a parish pastor. The section on pre-wedding meetings and the chapter on "Planning a meaningful wedding" provided a new way to do pre-marriage work with couples that was a vast improvement over past frustrations. I highly recommend it for clergy and anyone else who is interested in understanding the ongoing process of "becoming married."

I am a pastor and I first came into contact with this book when planning my own wedding. I found the book invaluable in negotiating the sometimes-confusing territory involved in getting married. Since then I have used it as a resource in helping other couples plan meaningful weddings and prepare for marriage. It is the best book of its kind I have found.
Herbert Anderson has some great approaches to pastoral ministry to those who intend on marrying! I am engaged and have learned so much about what it means to become married. I have given a copy to my pastor, and also to my mother! It is a book all should read. Anderson has some great pastoral excercises for pre-marriage work all pastors should read. It is a quick, easy to understand read!
