Jess1 Stars Out Of 5Super biased against wivesOctober 19, 2022JessQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1This book completely irritated me. In the first few chapters, he really hammers down on the wives in the marriage. I do agree that women need to respect their husbands, but the author makes it sound as if the marriage is ALL the wife's responsibility. He is extremely repetitive of the love & respect principle, and that's okay when you need to get something through your head, however it seems that that's all he says. I feel the author should use more biblical examples or examples of things we can do or say at home to enforce love & respect. He even says on page 102-103 that...""Forgive includes your husband, so why not move first and be the mature one?" In addition to making it seem that all the problems rest on the wife's shoulders, he also has snarky comments towards wives the book such as "And if women could keep their mouths shut!" I'm on Chapter 8 and I thought the rude comments would cease by now but he still go after the women! He says that women need to be respectful, and it'll give their husbands a good boost and then they will become loving towards their wives. Again, it's all on the wife's shoulders. I'm not sure if I can finish this book. I give it 1 star, since 0 stars is not an option. If you're trying to help couples with their marriage, I suggest you NOT blame the wife for literally everything.
Beth1 Stars Out Of 5Harmful teaching that is not biblical or research basedAugust 2, 2021BethQuality: 5Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1A wife expecting a grown adult man to understand that wet towels should not be left on beds is not unreasonable. Telling her she should not expect better from him is ridiculous. The whole premise of this book is not Biblical or research based. The Bible tells us to respect one another and to love one another. No where does it say men need respect and women don't need respect or that women need love and men don't need love. if this describes your marriage relationship, it's probably because you grew up in church and were brainwashed into thinking it's normal. Not only is this teaching not in the Bible, it's not backed up by any kind of scientific studies. Both men and women are created in God's image and both need love and respect. Not only is this book just wrong, it has been used to encourage women to stay in abusive relationships. The author talks about women needing to get out of harms way for physical abuse, but says nothing of the emotional abuse victoms. His advice to them seems to be to continue to take the abuse quietly and respectfully. This is not what we need to be promoting in churches. This is what has allowed so much abuse to go unchecked in our Christian circles. Women need to be empowered to speak up for their own needs and husbands need to be taught to listen and respond to those needs as Christ loved the church. This book does the opposite.
