A guidebook for abuse

This book is rated the #1 most damaging book in a survey of over 20 thousand women. I read this book as a young married woman. The whole premise starts out with a mindset that men NEED respect, but women only DESIRE love, and that attitude permeates the entire book. The author describes some situations in his life and others as examples. There are several that are actually abusive interactions. For example, the author likes to leave his wet towels on the bed. And his wife objecting to his behavior is painted as nagging and disrespectful. He even said he didn’t miss her at all when he was out of town because of the towels on the bed. The situation only remedied when his wife bowed to his wishes and shut up about the wet towels. Ya’ll, that is abuser behavior. That is a not a loving, good-willed man working out a marriage problem. That is an entitled, arrogant abuser, making his wife’s life miserable unless she does what he wants. I’m a trained, Faith-based victim advocate, and I would never recommend this book to anyone.

This is the most amazing book

I love how this book breaks down the communication issues between husband and wife in a loving biblical way and not a condemning way. This book has done amazing things for my marriage. I wish I had discovered it sooner. He has a family book and that one is amazing too! Definitely worth the money to fix my understanding of myself, husband, and marriage.

Too long, lost interest

The book had wonderful points and I learned a lot from it. However, I never finished the book even though I've tired to pick it back up again multiple times in the past 3 years. The format is more of a blog/journal. I think they need to come up with a new edition and shorten the book by taking out all the unnecessary talk and just stick to the facts and advice.

Excellent Read

This book is wonderful! It is written so well, i think everyone that is married or getting ready to marry should read this, it help me to understand the way we are wired and how to stop the "crazy cycle" we can so easily put ourselves on!


This book covers new ground in relationships and possible explains so much of what is wrong in our modern marriages.

I wish I had heard this a long time ago...

I thought my husband and I had a "decent" marriage. I knew I would stay in my marriage, but I had begun to think "this is the best it is going to get." I thought we would continue to co-exist, but our communication was so-so, and my desire for him was waning. Then I heard the video series in a Adult Sunday class at church and it changed my mind and heart forever. I realized why my expectations were not being fulfilled, and my husband and I looked at each other after the first video with tears in our eyes. I have shared this information with so many other women, and at first they look so baffled. But once you grasp it, your life and your marriage will never be the same. I see my husband with new eyes, and look at him the way I did when we first met. That is so nice after almost 19 years of marriage. It is a great book, and we plan to share it with our soon to be married son.

Only on Chapter 2 - But Know It Is A Must Read

This book was recommended to us by our counselor. She is recommending it to every single one of the couples she counsels or has counseled. That's how much she believes in this book. My husband and I read the introduction and knew right away that it was going to help us build a stronger foundation and have a better marriage. The concept is so simple - he needs respect and she needs to know she's loved - but you'll have an A-HA moment and know that it's so very true. The book will feel like it's talking directly to you. Every couple should read this book - happy couples and couples in trouble.


Love and Respect is one of the finest books I have read on the topic of male female communication. As this book gains more and more exposure it will go down as a must own in Christian marriage counseling. Not only did I order the book, but I also ordered the 9 cd set on the same topic and the workbooks "Motivating Your Man God's Way. I am a single living in New York and this book contains tremendous material for singles that will prove to be invaluable once they get married. I have taught much of the content in our bible studies. The purchasing of this book may be the single greatest investment you can man make to learn about the opposite sex, and have a God centered marriage.
