This book has helped me change my life. Thanks to Craig's book I have allowed myself to honestly re-evaluate my own life to make changes while gaining the confidence to ignite the spirit within myself that once was lost. It is a blessing to get reacquainted with my own feelings while attempting to understand and address the lack of emotions of my mate. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in living their life not just watching it pass you by.

Coming from the position of the "unemotional spouse" I found this book to be extraordinarily insightful. The author does a great job of making his points without mincing words but also without being judgmental. The repeated references to biblical scripture were very helpful and I believe make a constant allusion to the fact that the marriage relationship is much more than the mere interaction of two fallible humans. This relationship was ordained by God and both the husband and wife need to always bear this in mind. Without a greater love for God I personally don't know how a marriage can survive. Understanding that my love for my spouse is derivative of my love for God gives me the strength to persevere through the tough spots and rejoice in the high points. The specific steps the author gives to BOTH husband and wife are very helpful. I did wince a little bit at comments that seemed to demean the task-oriented unemotional spouse who was making efforts to change the relationship with better behavior. I frankly don't know how to show my love better than by doing "loving" things. I'm not suggesting that tasks supplant relationship but even the Bible says that one shows his faith by what he does (James 2:18). I was pleasantly surprised that the author addressed the possible unfavorable reaction by the "emotional" spouse to the efforts of the "unemotional" spouse to chance. I beg all of the "emotional" spouses who have suffered from years of emotional neglect to PLEASE encourage the positive changes of your "unemotional spouse." I know you are so much more than tired of living half a life but realize that this kind of change is a catastrophic rearrangement of a whole way of being.Read more ›

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Our counselor referred to our situation as emotionally abusive. I knew it was something, but in my gut the word abuse never really fit, completely. Until this book! OMG! I would search the internet. I read other books but everything about abuse never truly fit my whole situation. I've just read through the first few chapters and I found my life being explained on every single page. I've bought a book for him to read too. Without even finishing it I know this book will change us. No matter the outcome, I know now what we're dealing with. Unbelievable...
These are a few lines from the beginning of the book that fit this situation. If you feel like you have all of the love, respect and acceptance from your mate then read the "I got it all" book, this book is not for you!

"When you live without the opportunity to communicate what is in your heart and mind, you will not feel loved, respected and accepted..."
"Without expressing emotions you will not have the ability to establish or maintain a meaningful relationship with love and respect..."
"A meaningful relationship is when you can express what is inside your heart or mind and just be yourself without being afraid of rejection. It's when you can freely share thoughts, dreams, sorrows, and tears, believing they are accepted and respected without questions. Feeling safe, secure and loved inside your heart..."

This is a very good book for people living in these horrible situations.
The author makes religious references on every page. God this, God that, scripture.
What if you are Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, or non-religious. It's a bit
too much, the author could have been a bit more sensitive to that. Telling us the
embryo can think and feel. Keep your religious beliefs to yourself and help us with our unemotional mate Craig!

I was in a very emotional state when I started reading this book. What was quite interesting to me as I kept going through the chapters, was I kept saying to myself, "that is me" or "I am like that". When I started reading it, I was wanting to play the blame game...this is not my fault, but as I kept reading I was able to understand why my spouse was the way they were at times and also sometimes why I reacted the way I did. It was definately and eye opener for me. I purchased a couple of these books also for my friends who were struggling at the time too. I recommend reading this book along with being active in a supportive church that can help you through some difficult times and trust & have faith that God can help change your situation.
