A healing book
It's biblically based. It just makes sense. It helps you understand yourself and your spouse and how to give them what they desperately need.
The concept of unconditional love and unconditional respect is astonishing. I believe it can change marriages.
I listen to it multiple times. It really helps be better at loving my lady.
A simple relationship concept never before understood.
A concept that is easy to retain ~ not necessarily easy to do.
Many of the examples were very well applied.
Understanding the opposite sex and how to interact.
Fascinating point that first you must have a relationship with Jesus Christ, and also, respecting and loving your spouse is respecting and loving God. This to me, was and is fascinating to know.
I love Life changing books
I loved the audio edition. I listened to it on my iphone over and over. It's a life changing book. I believe every couple in search for a better relationship should listen or read this book.
Men need respect and women need love at the top of their lists. Not to mention vise-versa. If a man knows his wife respects him, he will give her the world. And if a woman knows her husband loves her she will give him the world. Trust me, it works. We have implemented it in our marriage.
I loved the scene when a wife goes to visit her husband at work and was shocked by how respected he was by his employees. She had taken him for granted.
I feel I should be my husband's number one cheerleader and not some stranger or co-worker.
The ending the crazy cycle.
Yes, I am recommending this book to all my friends and couples.
Love and Respect is the foundation of every good marriage. Every book on marriage I have ever read depends on the foundation explained clearly in Love & Respect.
Eggerichs explains what I have felt for 35 years of marriage but have never been able to explain. This book should be required reading for every couple.
understanding , communication, and revelation.
The acronyms C.O.U.P.L.E. and C.H.A.I.R.
Yes he was real and you could sense his heart for couples.
The truth behind the pink and blue accessories.
My friend suggested this book and even though my wife and I are satisfied in our relationship; I got it on audio book because we are always in the van. We listened to it a piece at a time and it re-established some truths back into our marriage that we had overlooked.
I really enjoyed Emerson's approach to Marriage. It has improved our marriage (just a little) in the last few weeks. I've purchased a paper copy and I hope to continue to implementing the C.O.U.P.L.E.S. strategy to show my love for my wife.
It is a Biblically based look at the husband and wife dynamic.
The Five Love Languages. Both books teach that the husband and wife are different people, with different styles of communication. However, if you don't know how to best communicate your love for your spouse your marriage will suffer. The good news is that you can learn to effectively love your spouse.
I initially thought the book was a little harsh on the wife. I was hesitant to re-listen to it with my wife because she is a very strong woman and I though she might react negatively to the first few section of the book and not get to the excellence that comes later. Of course, like many of my assumption about my wife I was wrong. She loved the book too and didn't hear the harshness I heard. God is Good!
I tried to end it there but audible requires at least 15 words. So I say once again. Fantastic, Period.
I love learning about new things, theories and history by way of audible. I like reading actual books for fiction :)
I liked parts of this book and believe parts of this book. But it's very biblical based and the principals are this: The husband must always show love to the wife (regardless of if he feels it at the time) and the wife must always show respect (wether she feels it at the time or not). It pretty much goes on and on about this, but doesn't really educate on how to show love or respect if that is not what you are feeling..... Eg. If the wife feels strongly that the husband is about to make a bad decision, she must respect this and keep quiet, again and again.... and vice versa... PLUS... when it talks about who should start showing love or respect first, he suggests it should be the woman whom should always show respect first, claiming the husband will come around...... I am a female and I don't feel like I need have love expressed to me all the time - definitely want to be respected... and guess I'm much more of a details person and this book more goes on about just those two principals..... Hope that helps.
Great book, but misrepresented as unabridged. This is abridged, as you call tell easily by listening while reading along in the book.
