If you are a single man, I would still highly recommend this book. Most of what is covered here applies to a man's walk in following Christ, and even the topics that are specific to marriage are still applicable in other areas of life. I've used this book as a source in men's groups which had married and single men mixed together, and never felt like the single guys were getting the short shrift. At the very least, it would be a good eye-opener for what to expect later on in life if they get married. Highly recommended. Just ignore the illustrations!
I guess the bottom line is: Do you want go through hell in your marriage or have a hell of a marriage. If you want the latter, you've got to get in a good strong community of happily married couples or read this book. Or both.
I especially enjoyed the section on the Biblical definition of love. In essence, Scott shows that love is a choice of the will. Whereas, love has an emotional aspect, it is not feelings alone that are the basis of love. He goes on to do a great job of debunking incorrect views of love.
The Christian husband is responsible for the spiritual development of his wife. This book brings great balance to the verse that says "...wives submit yourselves to your husband" by explaining that God intends for the husband is to be the servant-leader of his wife. He is to lead in such a way that he is worthy of her partnership. According to Scott, the Bible lays the bulk of the responsibility of the marriage relationship on the husband. This book demonstrates that if the husband loves his wife as prescribed by the Bible there will be a greater chance for marital fidelity.
I've used this at times for helping couples. There's several chapters that probably challenge each unique couple just where they need.
