My Review:  This study is amazing! I love the way that it is put together.  The videos really allow you to get an inside look into the lives of these couples.  I believe this study would be good for all stages of relationships, including singles. It's never too early to begin learning about all that God intended for marriage.  
There are 4 sessions in this first study:   1.  How We Met
                                                                 2. Moving into Oneness
                                                                 3. Identity in Christ
                                                                 4. Paths to Christ in Marriage

Each session has a video and a study guide chapter. I loved getting to talk with my husband about each topic. It amazed me how after 13 years we are still learning so much about each other!  I can't wait to order the next volume and continuing to grow in my marriage! 
I believe that this study would be a fabulous resource for all couples seeking to place or striving to keep God at the center of their relationship!
