And I can lump 11 of his Must Haves/Can't Stands together under Christian Character as a Must Have by using 1 Corinthians 13 --
3. Does not envy
4. Does not boast
5. Not arrogant
6. Not rude
7. Does not insist on own way
8. Not irritable
9. Not resentful
10. Does not rejoice in wrongdoing
11. Rejoices in the truth
There is NO WAY to limit his example Must Haves and Can't Stands to only 10. MOST of the 50 are things that most of us want or most of us would reject. There is NO WAY that anyone would willingly seek a partner exhibiting 40 of his listed Can't Stands, they are far too offensive. But this is still a good tool for reviewing my feelings about someone's behavior. Most importantly, Dr. Warren does not allow any wiggle room regarding those of the Narcissistic persuasion. He says...Run! Thirty years of marriage counseling gives him a lot of credibility in saying that the odds are against therapy improving any relationship with a Narcissistic partner
If you're still considering the book, just go to the used section... I literally got this book from a reliable book seller on Amazon for ONE CENT! And it was in incredible condition, I couldn't believe it. All I had to pay was $4 shipping.
There are lists. Lists are amazing because you can go through them with your potential partner or just simply read along by yourself and read and understand different categories of things to know what YOU want and need in a relationship. (Dealbreakers, necessities, compatible traits, etc.)
There is a section on learning to understand yourself - which is a must - before introducing someone else in your life.
There are sections for so many different steps of processes.
The only cons that I can think of, and I had to think really hard, is that sometimes the author talks about people who are not healthy for relationships but gives no proper solutions for those people. Overall, it's REALLY a small, small concern only because I'd like to help people that I know who are emotionally unhealthy.
Buy this book, you won't regret it. The only people who would are the ones who are not serious about relationships and just out to have fun or mess around. And if you're here, online, looking for a book on finding your soul mate, and reading my review... chances are, that's not you. So you will be satisfied :)
