1.0 out of 5 stars did not speak to us, June 26, 2010
This review is from: Love & Respect: The Love She Most Desires; The Respect He Desperately Needs (Hardcover)
My husband and I read this in a small group study with other Christian couples. We did not get anything out of the book. In fact we decided not finish it since it was not speaking to either of us. We both felt the authors language was a bit harsh, especially toward women. As a loving and positive thinking man, my husband did not connect with this. As a woman, I found myself sometimes hurt by the authors words. Although the basic Biblical truth of love and respect is absolutely true, this book divides everything into black and white, leaving too much out. It uses elementary examples that seem too obvious to need to write such a thick book about. It is very repetitive as well. I kept thinking my parents (in their 60's with a horrible relationship) might benefit from a book like this if it used more uplifting language. But young couples and couples that have a happy marriage already standing on the foundation of God's word will probably not get much out of this book. I encourage you to look for a different book to enhance your marriage. If anything, skimming through and just focusing on the verses and their meaning would be more helpful than getting lost in the rhetoric of the author. Hope this is helpful.
