My marriage was in big trouble and I went to the libaray in our church and asked God to help me find guidance. He led me to this book and several others, but his book is where I found my answers. Like other readers, I was horrified at first. I spent my career breaking glass ceilings and fighting for the rights of women. Until recently was the CEO of a multi-million dollar company. Although I am feminine, I also enjoy working on my own car, building things in the garage and all manner of other things this book might not approve of.

However, I DID find in this book the answer to my problem... humility and submission. My pride is choking our marriage.

I am married to a Christian man who would never ask of me the things cited in the book and objected to in the reviews below, so I won't address those issues. However, that doesn't mean I haven't been robbing my husband of the things he needs to feel valued, loved and honored. The way I read this book, I don't have to STOP doing any of the things I love to do. It isn't fixing the car that robs my husband of his esteem, it's fixing the car on the last evening we have together before his next business trip, or refusing his help when he offers, or having a wrong attitude about his needs of any kind.

Yes, it's 2005 and a few of her 1977 attitudes (including her hairdo on the back of the book) stuck in my craw, but I know that when I asked for help, God asked me to read and consider the message IN THIS BOOK. After reading it, I feel VERY convicted to honor my husband in much healthier ways. I am intelligent enough to know what applies to me, and God has shown me that humility and submission are part of my role as a wife - and that they are appropriate. God has given me a wise husband.

What I took away from this book, twenty years ago when my marriage was on the verge of divorce, not because my husband was a bad guy, but because my expectations of him were ridiculous and my spirit towards him was super critical, was to focus my attention on his positive traits and be an encouragement to him, trusting God to meet my needs. One exercise was to make a list of the positive traits that attracted you to your spouse in the first place. When I hit page two, I realized that I was expecting the poor guy to meet my every need, and not appreciating him for the great guy he really was.

I can't speak to the issue of abuse, as that definitely wasn't the problem in my marriage. What resulted from what I took from this book, was a marriage that is the envy of everyone we know. I can honestly say my husband is the best example of loving me as Christ loved the church. He is the most encouraging person and my greatest champion as I am his. We've been married 25 years now and people often ask us if we're newlyweds.

There were certainly things in this book I didn't agree with, but for me, it helped me to set aside my selfish and immature expectations and understand that God never intended my husband to meet my every need, as only God can, and as a result of that new mindset, I was able to be a true partner to my husband.

This book is definitely MUST reading for every Christian woman--married or single. It is SO refreshing to read a book on marriage that does not teach the woman how to manipulate her husband. This book is very sound Biblically and can be the turning point for even the most difficult situation. I keep re-reading it so I will not forget anything and it amazes me how the content never seems to get stale. Order several copies for friends and family.

A female friend of mine gave this to my wife in hopes that it would help our failing marriage. My wife refused to read it, so I read it myself out of curiosity. At first, I was skeptical. I figured how in the world could a woman know what a man wants and needs?
Well, I couldn't put the book down. It soon became evident to me that not only did Mrs Cooper understand the male psyche, but she understood it even better than most men do! The book was 100% on target with everything it said. It is the best book I've ever read regarding the male psyche.
I've read the negative reviews on this book and in each negative review, I see a common thread... A resistance to the truth about submission. The women that wrote these reviews are obviously not ready or willing to have a happy husband.
Wives, if you want to truly understand how your husband was created to be, this is the book for you. Regardless of what the negative reviews from others say, this book is the truth. Men are motivated by the women in their lives. It is up to you whether that motivation is positive or negative.
Oh, and the lady that gave my wife this book....she began to apply these principles. Her husband quit drinking, started spending more time with the kids, and got actively involved in his local church. It works!

I found this book at a thrift shop for a dime after a huge fight with my husband-to-be. I was so desperate and felt that our relationship was over no matter what I did. I started reading this book and I could see exactly why our fight happened as well as what I needed to do to fix it and prevent more problems from occuring. I immediately started applying the principles to our relationship and we are BOTH much happier. I don't think our relationship was this good even in the beginning! I have already loaned it out to a dear friend and know that it will improve her marriage! This book is a God-send and every woman should read it and apply it to their lives! Being a submissive wife makes you a stronger,better, and more beautiful woman and I finally feel secure about myself, my relationship with God and my relationship with my fiance.
