Many of the tips in this book I was already doing, but it was a good reminder to do them out of love again instead of out of habit. Attitude can make a huge difference. If you are not already do his recommendations, though, you really should for a healthy/healthier marriage. Basic ideas to put your spouse first, like you did when you were dating & first married.
I read this book in consideration of a women's book study I lead at my church. I was very excited to read it but disappointed halfway through. Most of the content is GREAT, funny, encouraging, real. What I found to be VERY problematic however was Leman's suggestion of divorce if things have been bad enough for long enough and the husband is not showing any signs of willingness to make change. God is bigger, better, stronger and LOVES to show up in impossible situations. I have seen Him move in "impossible" marriages when the wife became willing to receive His direction...all God needs to move is willingness, and though it can be, it doesn't have to be the husband's. Another problem with this book is that it encourages the wife not to engage sexually with her husband if she is feeling offended or hurt...if there is any problem with him, it must be sorted out FIRST before she gives in...that is NOT Scriptural, and neither is divorce because of a bad marriage/difficult husband. I have also seen, throughout my experience in women's ministry thatoften when a woman surrenders to her husband sexually, it softens him in a way that he becomes willing to make changes to serve her needs as well...someone's got to be the first to give in, and it's usually the wife...it's not fair BUT it is what is is. As a Bible believer, I would not recommend this book for anyone who really loves the Lord and needs God to move in their marriage.
Just started reading it, good so far. The price was excellent, I bought it when advertised as one of their weekly bargains. I've always wanted to read this book. also bought How to have a a new child by Friday - gave it to my daughter.
