—Shaunti Feldhahn, social researcher and bestselling author of For Women Only and The Surprising Secrets of Highly Happy Marriages
"Choosing Marriage is the kind of book that you will underline, highlight, dog-ear, reread, and then subtly leave open on your spouse's side of the bed for them to (hopefully) pick up and read, forcing you to purchase clean copies for your family and friends. When we were seeking an author/speaker/expert for a large event on marriage and relationships in California, we chose Debra Fileta, and the attenders loved her. When college students and young adults seek dating and relationship advice, we gift them with a copy of True Love Dates. And now, whenever we counsel those seeking insight and advice on marriage, we plan to give them Choosing Marriage. It is an engaging, insightful, and professional look into the most intimate of all of our relationships—our marriages—that is based on Debra's clinical expertise, sound research, and her own personal journey. For those of you who seek to choose marriage—who desire authentic intimacy, biblical insights, and practical ways to grow your marriage—you are holding the best book you can find in your hands. Please wait to highlight or dog-ear it until after you purchase it."
—Dr. Chris and Alisa Grace, Center for Marriage and Relationships, Biola University
"Put this book at the top of your reading list and buy one for a friend! My bride and I really enjoyed reading Choosing Marriage together. We were inspired and challenged to have a healthier relationship and given practical advice on how to do it. It's evident that Debra is not only a much-sought-after national speaker but also a highly skilled author."
—Chris Reed, Pastor to 20s/30s and Singles at Saddleback Church, Lake Forest, California
