My Heart Got Married And I Didn’t Know It introduces and names the concept of heart marriage as the binding together of the hearts of a dating couple in a profound way; yet they have not clearly and intentionally articulated a desire and commitment to marry.   Heart marriage occurs when couples begin to practice, rather early in their relationship, the typical behaviors of marriage such as monogamy, sexual intimacy and cohabiting, whether part-time a few nights a week or full time by literally occupying the same residence.  With today’s relationship trends, this occurs more and more often and as a result, couples are short circuiting the natural developmental process of getting to know and understand each other that is critical in discerning whether the relationship is right for the long term commitment of marriage.    

Because heart marriage occurs silently and unannounced, it is a perilous path. It gets in the way of the rational decision-making process so important to making healthy relationship choices and can propel a couple down the aisle to a predictably troublesome and unhappy marriage or, in other cases, keep dating couples “stuck” in the mire of indecision. Using real life examples, this book will help couples:

 

  Recognize that they are heart married.

 

  Decide whether ending the relationship is

              warranted.

 

  Learn the steps to dissolve heart marriage through

              a  heart divorce.

 

  Develop strategies to avoid heart marriage.

 

  Take steps to prevent repeating the pattern again

              and  again.

 

  Determine if their heart marriage can make a 

              successful transition into a legal  marriage.
