This book definitely changed my marriage and may have saved it. Over the years we had lost much of the intimacy in our relationship and I didn't even realize it until my wife basically told me she didn't love me any more. I never considered that this was even possible, but it happenned to me.

I have read a number of marriage books since this occurred. All were highly reviewed. All were good; this was the best. It is a complete guide to marriage. It is definitely a Christian guide but it isn't preachy.

This is not a book of exercises for couples in a troubled marriage. It is much more. Those other books were valuable too, but this provides a frame of reference that even makes those other books better.

I would highly recommend it to any married couple or anyone desiring to get married. It is useful for all marriages whether healthy or troubled. It opened my eyes to what a truly intimate relationship can be like. We didn't have one before but with the help of this book, we do now. We are still working through our issues, but I am amazed at the positive changes. Although I realized that I had to make more changes than she did, it was the best thing I ever did.

I would say that it definitely written more for Christians, but non-christians would get just as much out of it so long as they aren't turned off by Christian principles.

This book is hope! Approaching his book in an easy to follow and practical way as well as biblically sound, Dr. Wheat has given us a book that acknowledges the fact that possibly only one partner in the marriage is concerned about making the marriage work, yet if the one partner is willing to 'hang in there' and work, the marriage can be saved. As a skeptic of counseling books in general, I highly recommend this book as the best I've ever read

My husband and I were at a critical stage of healing in our marriage when I read this book. It had been seven months since I had found out about his infidelity. Although I had forgiven him as much as I knew how, there were still a lot of issues we were struggling with. This book has been absolutely the best counsel I have received from any source, short of the Bible. Dr. Wheat's Biblical resources and practical advice combined to help me see the areas I needed to work on to completely release my marriage to God. Much of what he says is opposite of the advice we get from well-meaning friends and family, but it is God-directed and thus the best solution possible. Some of it sounds impossible, but it confirmed to me that God is sovereign and He truly is the God of Romans 8:28. This book has been a life saver to me... Thank you, Dr. Wheat!

As a man facing crisis in my marriage, "Love Life" became my inspirational guide to God's hope for a healthy, balanced, growing and intimate marriage.
I raced thru the pages and came to truly understand marriage, love, intimacy, romance, sex, commitment, honor, joy, patience, forgiveness and hope in ways I never would have without the book.
Simply put, I advise all of my friends and anyone who will listen, to grab their Bible, this book and your spouse/spouse-to-be, find a comfortable spot and read, discuss and experience this book together.
If you are truly seeking God's purpose for your marriage, are in the middle of a crisis or are thinking of getting married, involve God everyday, and READ this book ... it WILL make a difference in your life, marriage and love life.

Overall this is a pretty good book. It will help your marriage if you read it. The author no doubt knows what a marriage ought to look like.

With that said you should watch out for bones. What I mean is that there contains some error in this book. To name a few:

1) pg. xv He talks about him being saved and as soon as he began to become the husband God wanted him to be he said, "my wife began to respond with love just as God had planned and promised." Where does God promise if one spouse gets saved the other will respond if loved properly? The Bible in this case says, "Or how do you know, husband, whether you will save your wife?" 1 Cor. 7:16. The implication is: you don't know.

2) pg. 3 "The principles I offer are solid biblical principles that will always work when applied to individual problems." and pg. 6 in saying even if your the only one trying to save your marriage, he goes on to say, "When they are properly and consistently applied, there are no exceptions, no unique cases where God's eternal concepts will fail." Of course God's Word will never fail. But He never promises you that if you do everything right in your marriage it will always work out. Jesus loved the twelve disciples all perfectly but one betrayed Him. Yes most of the time people respond to our love but sometimes they don't. This shows up later when he says that if a spouse cheats some of the blame "in almost every case" falls on the injured party. He seems to have a deficient view of sin. It doesn't matter what my spouse does to me. If I sin against her it my fault not hers.

3) pg. 31 He give his view of Matthew 19:1-9. He calls the word "fornication" used in Matthew 19:9.
