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.
