From the Back Cover
Are you miserable in your marriage?
WHAT TO DO IF YOUR SPOUSE IS...
Addicted to alcohol or drugs
If you are struggling in a painfully difficult marriage, you’re not alone, and the story doesn’t have to end there. In Loving Your Spouse When You Feel Like Walking Away, the revised and updated edition of the award-winning Desperate Marriages, Gary Chapman will teach you how to:
¿ Recognize and reject the myths that hold you captive
¿ Better understand your spouse’s behavior
¿ Take responsibility for your own thoughts, feelings, and actions
¿ Make choices that can have a lasting, positive impact on
you and your spouse
“I believe that in every troubled marriage, one or both partners can take positive steps that have the potential for changing the emotional climate in their marriage.” –Gary Chapman
About the Author
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Chapman wants couples, even those who feel like they have no option but to leave, to reject some myths and accept some realities. He writes that people can change, that couples do have options, that each spouse is in control of his or her responses, and each can influence the other with his or her actions.
I have to be honest, Loving Your Spouse is not fun to read. Each chapter covers some difficult-to-live-with characteristic: irresponsible, workaholic, depressed, controlling, abusive, sexually abused or abusive, uncommunicative, unfaithful, addicted. Chapman draws from his many years of marriage counseling and conference speaking for detailed stories of couples who have dealt with each of these and how they overcame (in most cases he tells a happy ending). Reading about these struggling marriages isn't exactly happy reading.
If a couple is dealing with one of the above troubles, this can be a great resource to get started on the journey toward reconciliation. In summary, Chapman says spouses should "embrace the positive actions that one individual can take to stimulate constructive changes in a relationship." Don't give up on marriage and be an agent of change. It's never to late.
Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for the complimentary electronic review copy!
It's a great read to read by yourself, or as a couple or even in a small group. I highly recommend this book.
