While this book had some good points, it was very much one sided. And repetitive. In my opinion, the author came across in his writing in a way that seemed to make women responsible for all problems in a marriage. I read the ENTIRE book thinking that he would eventually shift his view and discuss the responsibilities of men, but he never did. He also seems to believe that he is the ONLY one who figured out that couples want love and respect in a marriage. I would recommend the book Bringing Out the Best in Your Husband/Wife. These books give a fair view of both men and women. It doesn't come across as biased at all. And, the information is very similar.
We've been married 10 years and this book really has had an impact on how we deal with each other day to day. We were doing OK, but now we're doing great! Conflicts are less frequent and less volatile. We're enjoying each other's company more. So many positives! We highly recommend it to couples of all ages.
My husband and I have been married for 19 years. I would say we have a good marriage........however listening, learning and putting into practice the different techniques in this book it has done wonders for our marriage. In the last few weeks, our relationship has reached a new level, I call it "our second honeymoon". Physically, emotionaly and spiritually, the contents and the truth presented in this book will touch you to your very core. Even our children have noticed the difference! Love it! :-)
After 36, plus, years of marriage, I'm finally beginning to get it right after applying what I'm learning from this book! Great loving message with how to's at the end of each chapter. And there is a Men's section too! A Must for all marriages, even good ones can learn something from this book.
