Ozzie and Harriet are long gone, and nobody wants to return to the "traditional" roles of the 50s. Yet couples today are discovering that roleless, supposedly "50-50" marriages are confusing, unsatisfying, and impractical. Learn to build a better marriage based not on sexist stereotypes, but on biblical principles of structure and complementary equality.

    This book is great for older teens and young adults as well. It can help them get a biblical view for marriage that will lead them to change how they look at the opposite sex now. It is never too early to prepare for a lifelong relationship with the partner that God brings!

    This book is very good for every couple, no matter how long you've been married. It would be especially good for engaged couples to help them keep from making some mistakes to begin with. The authors give very practical help as well as principles.

    It is a well known statistic today that 1 of 2 marriages ends in divorce. One of reasons could well be a confusion on the roles the Bible prescribes for marriage. Although this book presents the idea of the husband as the head of the relationship, it does not present him as the "boss" or as a modern-day Archie Bunker. Instead, men are strongly encouraged in this book to take the lead in serving, in supporting, and in sustaining the other members of the family.The authors begin by defining the confusion over marital roles today, and the resulting chaos. They then outline the husband's role as servant-leader, and describe his core concerns. The wife's role is then outlined as helper-lover, and her concerns are also presented.Two chapters are devoted to the idea of submission, dispeling many myths regarding it. Common problems are addressed, and practical applications are provided. The book closes with two helpful appendices recounting the breakdown of gender roles in ancient Rome, and the impact that Paul's words had on that generation.I recommend this book wholeheartedly for both husbands and wives desiring to gain a better understanding of a Biblical-oriented marriage.
