Makes for an ideal gift to those to be married or already married.
This book is an eye opener. It is well written, easy to read and provides valuable insight into the different needs of men and women, namely that men need respect and that women need love. It uses concepts such as "pink glasses" to express that women evaluate their partners actions based on their need for love while men in contrast evaluate their needs based on their inherent need for respect. The book also explains in detail the needs of both partners and their differences. This book is well recommended.
Such an eye opened to understanding the differences between men and women. Highly recommend it! Very practical and easy to read.
The idea behind this book is taken from Ephesians 5:33. Dr Eggerichs has taken something that I had read so many times in the Bible and explained it in a mind-blowing way. This literally changed the way I viewed my husband and my marriage. I saw for the first time that I was showering love on my husband but at the same time completely disrespecting him. This book showed me how important it is to respect my husband. A must read for everyone who is married.
I was looking for answers to conflict and this helped immensely. I read the prayer at the back of the book for months, and slowly God changed my heart, mindset. I still refer to the notes I took from time to time, when I need reminding. Thanks for explaining the areas of conflict so well.
