SISTER MAIL: Help! I Am Getting Married!!

I receive quite a lot of emails and requests from readers across the world.
In some cases where I feel like an answer would also help the larger community, I make the decision to share the message, as well as my answer on the blog.

A Traditional Catholic Femininity group member recently posted this request in our Facebook Group:

“I am getting married in a few months. Just wondering if there was a conservative book or article that might help me prepare for marriage. I grew up very conservative and sheltered from even the process of menstruation, and am just trying to have the best mentality for my husband and God. “

Firstly, many congrats to her on her upcoming wedding!!

I have listed below a few of my favourite recommendations to help her get off to a good start in marriage.

The items I listed below are also ideal for those who are already married and they make fantastic gifts for friends or loved ones getting married soon.

If you have not joined the Traditional Catholic Femininity Sister Group on Facebook, I invite you to do so now.  You are welcome to send a join request if you are:

  • Female
  • A traditional Catholic – including, FSSP, ICKSP, SSPX etc

The group is full of wonderful, caring, virtuous Catholic ladies who offer mutual support, encouragement, tips, and advice.  I look forward to seeing you there soon.



The books below are highly recommended and ideal for Traditional Catholics.  Are there any other suggestions you would add to the list?
