Unlike many other books on the subject, Love Your Husband/ Love Yourself jumps right into the physical aspect of marriage right from the beginning. The entire first half of the book is about how and why we should make the physical aspect of marriage and important priority. It covers everything from "What's in it for me?" to how an active sex life reduces stress and rids our homes of tension and strife. It also covers the health benefits of an active sex life for both the wife and the husband. Part one of the book is extensive and contains eleven chapters.
Part two of Love Your Husband/ Love Yourself moves from the physical act of love to the emotional side of love. It focuses on how to love your husband unconditionally. This part explores God's original purpose for marriage and how to better relate to and love your husband unconditionally. This section of the book contains nine chapters.
I read this book over a couple of months, generally reading 2-3 chapters a week. Love Your Husband/ Love Yourself contains a lot of information-it's not a quick and leisurely read. I highly recommend you take your time with this one and to often stop and contemplate what you read. I do feel that Love Your Husband/ Love Yourself is a very good and Scripturally based book. I would recommend it to any married or engaged woman. I feel that all Christian wives would find helpful and useful information from it to strengthen their marriages.
The ONLY two things I got a little tired of or did not like was the author's use of quotes and her using quotes from Debi Pearl. I believe the author over did it with the quoting other authors. While many were helpful there were just SO many of them. Without them, this book would probably be about half as long. I honestly just found it a bit tiring. I also did not like that she used quotes from Debi Pearl on several occasions. I do not personally agree with nor support much of what Michael and Debi Pearl teach. Thankfully, the quotes from Debi Pearl were reasonable ones and not some of her more outlandish and abrasive ones.
Overall, I would certainly recommend Love Your Husband/ Love Yourself to Christians wives wanting to understand their husbands better and strengthen their marriage ties. Jennifer Flanders did a fine job writing about the delicate subject of sex within a marriage and gave a good perspective of how it fits into a godly marriage.
Even if you already feel that you are a kind & respectful wife--everyone could use a sweet loving reminder that despite the stage of life you're in--you're in it together! So don't grow weary in your own relationship and continually "choose" to grow together. Not only does it bind you emotionally, but sex is fun too!
Also, really interesting and thoughtful information on the physiological side of sexual intimacy. Things I never knew but even more a reason to engage in! :)
I looked through this book, decided it wasn't for me, and returned it.
