Thirty-two year marriage here that testifies to the effectiveness of the principles laid out in this book. The world would laugh at some of them, but then again, they are the one's desecrating the sanctity of marriage. Fifty percent divorce rate? Really?
My husband and I are working through this book together. We are using the book along with real life "what if" situations we bring up in our discussions to build hedges around our marriage. We are learning a lot about each other in the process!
This book is an easy, practical read with accurate, thought provoking ideas that challenge every man and woman to examine themselves and the situations they put themselves/marriages in daily....and how these very acts put our marriages in jeopardy and will eventually destroy it if we do not put hedges in place to protect it!
I highly recommend this book to every married couple and also to those who are contemplating marriage! "Hedges" just might be the cure for today's divorce epidemic :)
Was disappointed with this book. The principles are great and I believe they should be followed by everyone. Unfortunately, he predominately focused on men needing to set hedges. Recently I've encountered women that were having problems setting hedges and was looking for something to help them...didn't feel this book was quite suited for women.
