   Not all the wife’s fault
I made it through the first part of the book. This isn't what the Bible says. Husbands are commanded to live their wives, but women should submit to their husbands. One is not supposed to be dependent on the other. The line from page 4 makes it seem that husbands aren't required to live their wives if the wives show disrespect because the deepest need of the wife is undermined by her disrespect. Some marriage problems are not caused by a wife's disrepect.
   EVIL from both the man's and woman's perspective
This is a classic example of a message that the devil has altered. It's now pure EVIL. There are many resources that support this. I was very excited about the message because I had previously been married to an abusive wife. I bought it for a small group at the church and was very excited after the first week. I had some doubts the second week. By the third week, it was clear that this was a bad message. Do not purchase this item. How do I remove this from my account at AMAZON? I can't believe that it shows up in my library!
   Love AND respect are not enough to change a man. He had to WANT to change.
The premise of the book is that men stray because of lack of sex in a marriage. In many cases, the woman is more sexually active and interested and the man may have a lack of self worth. The author should meet with more women who are sexually active as he has not even touched on the tip of the larger problem. If a person chooses to behave poorly, it is on them and not their spouse.
I'm stunned that so many women have given this book positive reviews. The author's misogynistic view points left me befuddled and my significant other saw the issues with the book. After the first chapter, we discussed what we'd read and put it down. And never picked it up again. He was surprised that I ordered a book like that when our relationship is based on love and respect. I respect him and he is loving me. I love him and he respects me too. I am very unimpressed with this author.
   Misogynistic and damaging
I believe in gender roles from the bible. The author's ideas sound good on the surface, but the book does more harm than good. There is a subtle sexism in the author's language that weighed on me. My understanding of my identity in Christ is not congruent with his opinions. The author neglects the whole of biblical witness by taking passages out of context and building his own narratives around them. As a new wife trying to find my footing, this was very damaging to me. After my father told me he saw the author speak, I felt vindicated. Stick to the Bible and the Christian community for wisdom in navigating your marriage.
   Unable to finish
Our church group of young couples tried to read, but couldn't finish it. The book is critical of women.
   Great read.
The book is awesome. I'm in the mental health field and I appreciate the author's take on relationships and what they consider to be important. Thankfully I was open enough to allow myself to read the book and incorporate the desires of the opposite sex into a fitting role model for a harmonious living. I can see how this information works and would encourage anyone in family counseling to give it a try.
