A truly fulfilling marriage involves two people focusing on each other's needs rather than their own. Lysa TerKeurst, president of The Proverbs 31 Ministry, has written a practical guide for all spouses that will open their eyes to the needs, desires, and longings of the others. She offers eight essential criteria for capturing the heart of your spouse, with creative tips on how to accomplish them.

Husbands don't bother! Get Love & Respect instead.
Lysa robs Ephesians 5:33 of the 'respect' you need when she suggests you pray for you wife to 'love you in the way you need' just PRAY that your wife will demonstrate respect to you, really! ...if this book was written for men. However, later she quotes other scripture exactly.
Most of the stories and anecdotes are very condemning or demeaning to us guys. Except her own husband! Wow, not very encouraging. This book should have been titled: Men Are Not Good Enough To Be Husbands, Just Ask Your Wife
The only redeeming factor was since I bought this on Audible, I kicked the play speed up!
Sadly, Lysa 'borrows' many ideas from other authors in every chapter.
She justifies women's manipulating behaviors by calling it 'the language of hints' and acknowledges that the point of this language is to get 'what they want', deliberately making communication difficult to test your love. Not OK!
I think women will love this book and buy it for their husbands. Maybe that was the marketing angle.
Honestly, I think the author's heart is in the right place. However, from what I know of her, she writes and speaks for women's conferences, and this book proves it.
