There is not one mentioned excuse for separation or dissolving that can be found.
It is the best primed functional tool, fitting all circumstances of marriage. I found it humbling and disarming.
I counsel women in troubled unions therefore it was advantageous to locate a resource that I can recommend without question. I consistently disclose Hosea's Biblical example as he stood caringly firm in his love for his prostituting wife. I found Dr. Wheat cites Hosea in the areas of forgiveness and restoration-what a way to make my day.
Love Life is not just for troubled marriages...it is also for anyone planning on partaking in a nuptial covenant as it provides multiple opportunities for designing a romantic and exciting union. If I could, I would make every Christian couple pour over this in all serious study for compliance. Song of Solomon 2:15 reminds us to capture all the foxes that endanger a marriage...the cages needed to entrap them have already been designed through adherence to the scriptures.
1Peter chapter 2 deals with suffering and chapter 3 specifically deals with suffering in marriage. So many believe it should be automatically fantastic and when it isn't, they often devise a way out. Dr. Wheat views suffering as a way to grow and mature as believers and as an avenue venturing to a more fulfilling and thoughtful marriage.
The only drawback to the book in my opinion was church discipline was never addressed. This element is key when dealing with a wayward spouse. The church is to exercise correction when a mate is in sin so others will be fearful of disobeying and to bring the offender into repentance and restoration. This is also important as 1 Corinthians 5, especially verse 11, advises us not to let immoral people in the church.
Doctor Wheat takes a slighty different approach to marriage in this book. Everything that is in this book, he takes back to scripture out of the Holy Bible. I've never seen an author base so much of their findings on scripture as Dr Wheat has. As Doctor Wheat explains in the book, (paraphrased) "Follow these instructions to the letter, and give it 6 months to see change." Even if you don't think you need improvement, you need to read this book. Quick reading, to the point, excellent choice. This book is indeed a God-send!!! Thank you Jesus!!!
...the real gold in this book is that it gives the person suffering through a failing marriage hope and a plan. If you are not a Christian do not pass this resource by. Biblical principles will still enhance your marriage whether you believe in their source or not.
It is one of the first resources that I recommend when I conduct premarital classes.
