This is a great book for women to read. It gives great information that puts to rest the idea that men and women require the same things from their mates. Women need love and men need respect. IF the man doesn't show love, and the woman responds by then not showing respect you are in for a miserable marriage. I have read this book, and it gave me great insight into the mind and heart of my my husband of nearly 19 years. Please read this! You will have many "AH-HA!! moments" as you begin to understand just why your husband doesn't behave the way you always hoped he would. Respect him and you will see a huge difference. READ IT!!!
Helps you understand your mate. Includes many scripture references.
I didn't really enjoy this book. I was hoping for a book that would encourage me in my marriage from a Christian perspective, but instead I found a book that was very focused on culture. One of the recommendations, for instance, was to make sure you're always up before your husband in the morning and always go to bed after him so that you can be sure your hair and makeup is always done. In my opinion, your husband should be accepting of the real you! It seemed like a "be the perfect homemaker" type of book instead of "here's way to grow your marriage" book.
This is a very bible based, with scriptures quoted, type of book.
