"For Couples Only" by Shaunti and Jeff Feldhahn is a two-book set containing their titles "For Women Only" and "For Men Only". These comprehensive guides de-mystify the opposite sex. They are incredibly valuable resources that encourage you to learn about your mate (and maybe even yourself). Packed with insightful information detailing the differences between men and women, these books can be used to spark conversation with your significant other. In this set, there is even a conversation guide included. "For Couples Only" is truly a wonderful asset to possess if you want to build your relationship.

Perfect for : Personal Use, For couples, for newly-weds, for engaged couples, for church bible-study class, engagement gift, wedding gift

In a nutshell: For Couples Only is actually a set of books: For Women Only and For Men Only, which have been designed to help you understand your partner better. The books were written and based on input that was gathered by the authors from over 1000 surveys (each). We tend to make assumptions, and sometimes what we believe is actually far from reality. These two books are meant to be read by each partner, and are written in an easy-to-read format with great insight throughout. I was simply amazed at some of the survey results - many of the answers were the opposite of what I would have thought, which has led me to have a better understanding of why my husband and I understand the same comment two different ways sometimes. I've been able to learn a lot more about my husband by reading For Women Only. Read this book and find out what you didn't know about your other half - you might be surprised!

Extended Review: One key note I learned by reading the front of For Men Only (Yes - I peeked!) is that Shaunti took the time to write women a quick note inside the men's book, and it basically shares that we process the information we are learning in different ways, and while many women will learn something and then talk to their spouse about it as a way to better-understand what they are reading, men do the opposite - they like to think about what they are reading until they understand it, and THEN they will talk about it. Knowing that made reading and discussing the book easier for me, because I didn't take my husband's quietness as non-interest.

Format: Hardcover
I first read the "ladies" version in 2005 and really liked it. It was an insider look on the way a man thinks, feels and behaves. I was really surprised how much certain things mean to a man... like being respected even over being loved. I realized that I often times try to love my husband how I would want to be loved as a woman, but he needs that communicated a little bit differently. When I show honor and respect to him, it even trumps "love"- or at least the "girl version of love" that is full of words, compliments, and talking.

Chapter 5 titled, "Sex Changes Everything" gave some interesting insight into the world of our husbands... "Men want more sex than they are getting. And what's more, they believe that the women who love them don't seem to realize that this is a crisis-not only for the man, but for the relationship... Lack of sex is as emotionally serious to him as, say, his sudden silence would be to you, were he simply to stop communicating with you. It's just as wounding to him, just as much a legitimate grievance - and just as dangerous to your marriage."

I totally appreciate the straigtforward advice that the Feldhahn's give in their books. It gave Brian and I lots to talk about together. The fun thing about reading a book is that you can ask one another, "Do you agree? Is this true for you?" Relationships are built deeper and better when we share this kind of real information with one another. If you want to build a stronger marriage, I dare you to read these books!

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I like this set so much I am buying a copy for each of my brothers, so they can (hopefully) skip some of the mistakes I made in my first marriage. The best gift I can give each family member is a happy primary relationship, and I think this is the best means by which I can give it to them.

For either gender, this set seems to be the closest thing imaginable to an "owner's manual" to the opposite gender. I wish I'd had this available years ago, to avoid some of those situations when walking on eggshells seemed inevitable. I've always believed in respecting the differences between people, but it's exponentially easier when you know precisely what the differences are!

Without trivializing any one trait, this married couple co-authors a simply & factually written guide to understanding the psyche of your significant other. I can't imagine how much good they have done for couples who read these volumes. I bet most readers get only a few pages in before exclaiming "WOW," because it's rare that the other gender will open up so completely and so fearlessly to give us a clear glimpse inside their psychological map. After I received my copy, I read both volumes, discussed them with my boyfriend, then lent them to his daughter. I hope to share this treasure with many more people!

The volume about men began accidentally, when the author discovered (while researching a novel) that her understanding of the male psyche was much less deep than she thought, and began to see her research as more applicable to a self-help book than a fictional story. Promising anonymity encouraged several male acquaintances to level with her, and she discovered a new understanding of "normal" for a man's inner world.
