Publisher's Description

You've forgiven a thousand times. You've bent over backwards to make your partner feel loved and accepted. But the only reward for your loyalty has been anger, indifference, infidelity, or abuse. Your spouse may even be ready to walk out the door.
Do you feel like all is lost? Are you ready to give up? There IS still hope.
Dr. James Dobson's “tough love” principles have proven to be uniquely valuable and effective. Unlike most approaches to marriage crisis, the strategy in this groundbreaking classic does not require the willing cooperation of both spouses. Love Must Be Tough offers the guidance that gives you the best chance of rekindling romance, renewing your relationship, and drawing your partner back into your arms.

    This book challenges a person to do what they might otherwise shy away from in the midst of a crisis in a relationship - specifically marriage, but it applies to any relationship. It's easier to avoid confrontations or standing strong because of fear. What it's really about is not letting bad behavior continue. I wish I'd read this many years sooner, but am grateful to have read it now. I've never been disappointed by any of Dr. Dobson's books and would recommend this in a heartbeat.

    This book is awesome. I purchased this book from Barnes and Noble in Fargo, ND right after Hurricane Katrina. I gave it to a friend to read and never got it back. "Well, you know how that is" I came back home to New Orleans in 6/2006 and tried to purchase this book and was told they no longer printed this book. I was very disappointed. I would encourage anyone who is having a difficult time in a relationship to read this book. It will boost your self-esteem. You will not have to wonder how to handle tough times in your marriage/ relationships. This is a great book.
    You have to purchase and read the book. I just cannot tell you everything.

    I was very excited to read this book, but the format I am forced to read it on is hard to use, doesn't scroll through very easily, and it's pretty crazy that I have to log in every time I want to read this book. The format made the book not worth the price I paid.

    This book has certainly opened my eyes regarding tough love. I apply the principles as much as possible. It's not easy but I suppose it's tough to practice tough love during trying times.

    I got this book due to a recent problem with my spouse. It was recommended by probe.com so I thought I should read it. It reinforced things I already knew about confronting your spouse but unfortunately the approach didn't really work for me. Unless your spouse is a believer, it may not be worth trying.

Q: Does this book apply if you are the offending spouse?

A: Each situation is unique, but in general this book is appropriate for either party in a difficult marriage. The author does suggest to not ask a spouse to read it unless the spouse shows genuine interest.
