Publisher's Summary

Boasting more than one million copies of his works sold, conservative radio personality Dr. James C. Dobson squarely addresses the problem of troubled marriages. He targets infidelity, alcoholism, spousal abuse, and emotional distance as the primary causes of divorce. Dobson also chooses to denounce homosexuality as an abomination. With his groundbreaking theory of "loving toughness", he offers a path toward solving marital problems, building family values, and rekindling lost romance.

Only wish I heard this sooner

I only wish I heard this sooner, but I pray the Lord helps me bring my marriage back together. I know I would like to consider this, but I don't know if he is willing to. But I've learned a lot through listening to this, and I know it will make me a better person over all. Thank you Dr Dobson!

Very sensible advice even in a secular sense.

This novel contains strong religious overtones but I found the content still very relevant and sensible in a secular sense as well. The book often time addresses women but also applies to men just as well.

The novel served as much needed voice of reason for me in hard times.
