While I really liked the book and felt that much of it's ideas were probably useful and important, it was heavily directed at adultery situations. For me, I had a hard time seeing my situation with the way that Dobson kept coming back to adultery as the cause of divorce/separation.
fantastic read...has helped me in my difficult ongoing crisis with my husband.just unearthed a web of infidelity and deception of 2 yrs and was clinging onto him in the face of emotional abuse and neglect.i finally had the courage to be tough and to regain respect and dignity and oh.it is such an exhilarating feeling.and yes...all the big name authors did miss the mark in giving advice for my situation.
My husband and I have been in a tough situation for 3 years. This book not only was an aid in identifying why we act the way we do but also a guide leading us to the results of a healthy marriage. Because of this book we sought professional help through Focus on the Family and are on our way to salvaging something important, our marriage.
A fantastic book to encourage people in really difficult situations to discover all their courage to put an end to disrespekt, drunken husbands or disfaithful behavior. Interesting and understandible explanations of relevant Bible textes dealing with marriage problems.Although I knew already much about coping with alcohol problems - Alateen, Alanon etc - I was surprised and most delighted about the clear way of explaining matters.The advices given to lonely people how to examine their hearts when chosing a husband or wife are very wise.I can highly recommend this book to all persons who either live in a difficult parnership or do not know how to find the right husband or wife.
