Dove Review

The voice of experience. What better person to learn something from than an expert in the field? Three couples, one newly married and the other two about to tie the knot, view and listen to clips from couples who have been married for many years. They share their wisdom on important subjects such as money, trust and taking time to truly talk.

Host Lauren Glassberg does a terrific job in drawing responses from the couples and they address kissing good-night even when one or both partners are angry. The three young couples are Karen and Brian, Beth and Ben, and Jennifer and Justin.

The wisdom the older couples impart is priceless and this DVD is definitely worth viewing. We recommend it for ages twelve plus and happily award it our Dove Seal. Along with your pre-marital counseling, this DVD just might help couples avoid some marital pitfalls.
