It's so refreshing to hear someone tell it like it is without worrying of "feelings" or loosing a book sale here and there. If you want actual marriage advice that will more than likely make you stop and go "I do that!" Than this is your book. If you want a marriage book that makes you a victim and helps you justify your position. This isn't the book for you.
I had a bad childhood and knew that my childhood effected my adult life. But this book makes you stop and realize that maybe you have more issues than you realized. That you are responsible for your happiness. Not your spouse. And how ridiculous I feel for thinking with my feelings all the time. One of my favorite things she said was that we have a responsibility to our marriage and our family (children) even if your "feelings" are hurt. And later in the book she said that feelings don't have an IQ. But you do. So who's winning? Oh man, my "feelings" of anger towards my husband may be justified but the way I handle it wasn't. I have a lot more culpability in our marriage than I thought. Can't wait to start her other book!
Extremely entertaining, never got boring- showed other people this book.
I read this a while ago, I can't remember specifically- I just know it changed my relationship.
Read with a skeptical mind. She makes a strong case for the conservatives.
Addicted to Audible since 2009
I was really looking forward to listening to this but to my dismay much of this was more about the author telling us to pray. Don't know why one needs religion in their life to be a "good or moral person" and in addition to that, I could've did without her personal opinions on abortion. With that said, there were a few good tips in it but sadly that good advice was too little too warrant any kind of positive review. And I could be crazy here, but if the book is titled "10 stupid things couples do to mess up their relationships" then shouldn't those 10 stupid things be clearly listed or stated within the audiobook?
