As hard as I try, I can't get my husband to pick up a Christian marriage book. He will on rare occasions read one like This Momentary Marriage by John PiperThis Momentary Marriage: A Parable of Permanence. His biggest concern is that marriages are seen as if you do this, then you'll get this kind of situation--one you can fix by what you do. I have to agree with him that that is the case with many marriage books.

I have read many of Linda Dillow's books and have used Intimate Issues as a reference for several friends over the years when we've talked through struggles in their marriages. So, I was excited to read this book. But, for some reason this book and me did not click. I realize that different books fit for different people. If I were to recommend a book on marriage to women, I would instead recommend Dancing with the One you Love Dancing With the One You Love: Living Out Submission in the Real World At this moment, I can't really put my finger on why except that I felt that she put a lot of emphasis on sex in this book--more than I was comfortable with and more than I agree with. She also quoted several people's writings that I usually don't read for advice. That gave me a clue that we were coming from different perspectives. If you tend to books by John Piper, I would recommend other books. If you enjoy Joyce Meyer's books, I think you'd probably like this book.

I would encourage you to read a preview of it, and if you love what you read then you'll love the book.

This is, hands down, the best book on marriage that I've read. What's it Like to Be Married to Me (and other dangerous questions) by Linda Dillow is one that every married woman who aspires to be a godly wife needs to read. Linda touches on subjects that aren't usually talked about, the things that we don't talk to our friends about but all struggle with. Some of the chapter titles are: What does it feel like to be my husband? (ouch!!) Am I willing to change my attitude? What's it like to make love with me? Why do I want to stay mad at you? and many more. This book also includes an outline for you to create your own Marriage Purpose Statement. The back of the book holds a ten (or twelve) week Bible study. What a great way to connect with other women and learn how to care for your spouse at the same time.

If you are willing to be vulnerable and if you desire a deeper intimacy with the man you're married to then you need to read this book. I plan to keep this in my collection and refer back to it when I'm slacking.

Reviewed by "A Pastor's Wife" (Laurie)

A couple of months ago, I heard an interview on the Christian radio station with the author of a new book entitled, "What's It Like To Be Married To Me?" The interview intrigued me enough to get the book. I'm glad I did. I would recommend it for any woman who's ever thought, "My husband is so blessed to be married to me." The book is written by a woman in her 47th year of marriage. It consists of 10 chapters filled with thought-provoking questions, the author's insight, responses and comments from over five hundred wives who've completed the study, as well as lots of Scripture quotes. As with most marriage books I'm drawn to, it is based on the very counter-cultural premise that like Christ, we Christians are created to serve others, including our husbands. We are created to love, to forgive, to bless, to help, to encourage, and as we choose to live that way, we in turn are filled with peace, joy, hope, and contentment. That message is simply un-American. It opposes the idea that the only way to happiness is to demand that people respect me and treat me as I want to be treated. One statement the author, Linda Dillow, wrote that I would say sums up the book is this: "Marriage is an unconditional commitment to an imperfect person." She explains that the commitment is not just to accept our husbands, but to appreciate them. Now, that's challenging.

The book includes a 10-12 week study guide in the back, which is intended for group discussion. This guide recaps and gives steps for applying the scriptures mentioned in the chapters. It also recaps the action steps mentioned in the book and asks questions about results as the readers attempt to engage in them.

The book starts well with interesting questions like the title "what is it like to be married to me?" and "why do I want to stay angry with you?" Unfortunately, MUCH of the book is devoted to dealing with negative sexual experiences before marriage that may make a wife inhibited in bed. If you have been raped, been the subject of child pornography, or had some other horrible sexual experience, her advice may be helpful. As one of the fortunate females who has not had to deal with these issues, much of the book was just disturbing rather than useful.

Depending on your background and level of Christian maturity, this book may aid you in becoming a better wife. If you have been saved for a while, you have probably already heard what Mrs. Dillow is preaching in this book.
