From the Back Cover

How can you keep the spark going in your marriage long after the honeymoon? How can you get beneath the rational exterior that often keeps your spouse from dealing with his feelings? You want to be your husband's best friend. But sometimes there's a gulf in understanding that keeps the two of you from being as close as you ought to be.

How to Become Your Husband's Best Friend will help you successfully take the initiative to bridge that gap. These four brief chapters excerpted from For Better or for Best deal with the real problems that can hinder you from the kind of marriage you want: * What it means to really be "a couple." This chapter includes an exercise for profiling personalities. * How a feeling-oriented wife can communicate with her reason-oriented husband. * How you can cultivate responses of affection instead of just hoping they will "happen." * How to show appreciation to your spouse and receive it in return.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I truly wish I had been given this book before the wedding. It gives clear application in knowing who your husband is, how he thinks, and what he really needs in a mate. I would recommend this book to engaged and married couples alike.

This book is well written and filled with Godly wisdom about relationships. Unfortunately, mine didn't turn out but that was't because of this book. It takes two to make the marriage work and I found this book to be very helpful.
