I am a woman who is married to a man much like one of the authors (By the way, contrary to another reviewer, I would never describe them as "abusers." They simply didn't understand how much pain they were causing their wives by their actions.). I know my husband loves me deeply, but he has never really understood how to connect with me so we can enjoy the fantastic sex life he (and I) wants! This book is about mutual submission, and any husband who takes it seriously will reap rewards that he has only dreamed of. Men, your wives want what this book describes more than anything else in life. I had given up that anything like this was even possible after 20 years of marriage. For one thing, I couldn't even describe it to my husband so he understood, but these authors have been there and figured it out, and they speak to men like men. They found these answers by seriously seeking God and asking Him to show them what their marriage was really supposed to look like (after some serious problems, which almost destroyed their marriages and their wives!). If you are serious about having the most fantastic marriage that God intended for all of us, then read this book and live it like these guys are.
I started reading this book thinking it was primarily directed only to "Neanderthal" Christian men who don't have a heart or a brain when it comes to interaction with their wives! The pace does begin slowly, but in hindsight this pace would be helpful to those men who need to start at square one in their relationships. There is much here however, that will refine happily-married Christian men who have been living with contented spouses for years.The author starts by describing how marriages grow cold. He then progresses to offer his instructions on how to return the warm glow to the grey embers. The bulk of the book focuses on the concept of being a bondservant to one's wife, both in heart and in mind. This concept really makes the book, and the author's exposition of it is well worth the purchase price. The volume concludes with a description of how submitting to one's wife, and her needs, can totally revive and rejuvenate an ailing marriage.I recommend this book to all Christian married men, regardless of the strength or the longevity of their marriages. After all, none of us as husbands have arrived! Get it, read it, practice it, and see the difference!
Our marriage is completely transformed. It's not what he's told me but how he expresses his love to me that has changed. I feel honored, appreciated & loved ... he has made me feel precious, again. The desire to bless my husband & seek ways to bless him has returned because his criticism of me has left. I now have the HUSBAND that every woman desires. This book has blessed my life, our marriage and our children as they see how beautiful marriage can be.
This is the best book, outside of the Bible, that I have ever read. That said, this book is not for everyone. I see a number of people that gave it low marks and I can understand their perspective.Criteria for evaluating whether this book is for you:1) You must be a Christian. There are many Christian themes and Biblical references. If you're not a fan of the Bible, then those probably won't have the same impact2) You must be a male. It's better to remove the expectations from women - guys have a hard enough time figuring this out. Women may not like how they're positioned as someone that should be wooed and cared for, but it's a great reminder for how men should approach their spouses. Men will, hopefully, integrate the information and take the correct approach in accordance with their spouse's personality.This book helps men to understand how to approach relationships properly. Too often men are concerned with themselves alone and don't give the proper consideration for their spouses. I never thought I had a problem in this department, but when you consider God's standard, not Man's standard, you realize a whole different level of happiness and joy in your marriage.Last year may have been the roughest of my ten year marriage. As a result of my application of the principles in this book, this eleventh year is turning out to be our best yet. Our relationship resembles the emotions and romance of our courting days, back when we made the decision to commit to each other for the rest of our lives. This book provides the tools to resist living like two friends under a single roof, but to live as two lovers that are focused on each other's needs.If you meet the eligibility criteria, this is the best $10 you'll ever spend.
I don't have a wife yet, and in fact I am MANY steps away from getting one (LOL!). But I am very glad that I read this book. Not only it will help me become a better husband, it also helps me better understand women in general. This book explains, in a convincing way, what it really means to be "manly" and be the head of the family: rather than being macho and force your wife to submit to you, YOU have to submit to HER first. She will then return in kind and submit to you back. In other words, mutual submission is important, and the husband needs to take the lead to do this. All guys should read this, and if we all follow the guidelines suggested by the authors, I bet this would be a better world because both men and women will be happy.
