Is it okay to want to be married? Is there anything a woman who has never been married can do to make marriage more likely? Candice Watters gives women permission to want Christian marriage, encourages them to believe it's possible, and supplies the tools to get there despite our post-marriage culture. Get Married includes the author's personal journey from singleness to marriage as well as a biblical perspective on marriage. It shows how living intentionally is the key to marrying well. Get Married is a fresh and hopeful perspective that empowers single women to pray not only for their friends, parents, and churches, but the men who are (or could be) part of their lives.

About the Author:

STEVE and CANDICE WATTERS met at Regent University while earning Master¿s Degrees in Public Policy. Marrying shortly after graduation, they moved to Colorado to work at Focus on the Family. Steve grew up in Washington, NC and Candice grew up in Toledo, OH and so the West was a great place to help them leave and cleave.Today, the Watterses live in Louisville, KY where Steve serves as vice president for communications at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He is also working on his M.A. in family discipleship. Steve and Candice speak, write and feed their blog, www.FamilyMaking.com, as they're able.They spend a lot of our time enjoying, guiding, serving and being stretched by their four children: Harrison, Zoe, Churchill and Teddy.The Watterses founded Boundless.org webzine for Focus in 1998. Candice served as the Boundless editor for four years until leaving in 2002 to be a full-time mom, doing a little freelance writing and editing on the side. Candice is the author of Get Married: What Women Can Do to Help It Happen (Moody, 2008). Together Steve and Candice wrote Start Your Family: Inspiration for Having Babies (Moody, 2009).

Review:

Candice Watters cuts through the superficial veneer of politically correct thinking to arrive at the bed-rock wisdom of biblical truth: marriage is an honorable pursuit, worthy of our earnest intentions and fervent respect.  Get Married is forceful, persuasive, and a must-read for today’s Christian single.
-Gary Thomas, Author, Sacred Marriage

Get Married not only brings healing and renewal to the Christian single confused by Scriptural misinformation, it offers them practical advice to get to the altar.  I am convinced that this book will play a vital role in unshackling this generation from the spiritual oppression that keeps them from forming godly marriages and godly seed.
-Debbie Maken, Author, Getting Serious About Getting Married: Rethinking the Gift of Singleness

I have hired and worked with hundreds of single women over the years, and I am particularly sensitive to their "plight."  Single men do not pursue women for the purpose of marriage and family, thanks to the feminist movement, which dealt a near fatal blow to the institution of marriage in the past three decades.  Single women have been embarrassed to express what they really want to do with their lives--get married and have a family instead of pursuing a professional career or "playing house" with a guy who has no interest in being a husband or father.  Marriage is a gift of God to His creation!  I salute Candice Watters for this wonderful book and the message it contains.
-Diane Passno, Sr. Vice President, Focus on the Family and Author, Feminism: Mystique orMistake?

A hopeful and empowering message for Christian women.
-Danielle Crittenden, Author, What Our Mothers Didn't Tell Us, Why Happiness Eludes the Modern Woman
