Part two talks about what love is and why we were created. Much of this was review for me, but I so enjoyed the refresher.
Part three includes very helpful information no matter how long you have been married. Things that as the years go by can sometimes be forgotten or in the rush of everyday life overlooked.
I recommend this book for both engaged couples, newly weds and those who have shared many years together already.
Dr. Myles Munroe has some very important and wise advice for married couples. This book would be best read at the start of marriage so as to build a good foundation. This book provides a very traditional biblical approach to marriage. In a time when people don't think well of the institution of marriage it is even more important to read marriage books to keep your eye on the goal of staying married. I love that this author thinks knowledge is a good thing.
I felt that Dr. Myles Munroe brought a much deeper understanding to what marriage actually is. I don't find this type of depth in most marriage books. Dr. Myles Munroe also explains the most critical elements for creating a happy marriage. He provides straight talk for those who want to gain his wisdom based on biblical truths.
Feminists who read this book may be upset about all the talk about submission, although the Bible explains that there should be mutual submission and the author emphasizes this. Parents who have found alternatives to spanking might also disagree with the verses on disciplining children. Those were the only two things I think anyone would have an issue with. Also I think his thoughts on why women stay in abusive relationships might not be totally right. I think women stay because they see few alternatives if they are depending on a husband for support. I don't think they are getting any needs met by the abuse.
What I did enjoy about this book was the amount of time spent talking about the different types of love. There are also ten healthy and unhealthy reasons for getting married which might interest engaged couples.
There is a thoughtful chapter on sexuality in marriage which I thought would be helpful for newlyweds.
So this book is fairly long and is a very traditional view of marriage. With the divorce rate as it is I can see a great need for books like this. It is never too late to read a book like this although I'd say it would be most helpful at the start of a marriage.
~The Rebecca Review
I bought two hard copies of the book to present to my daughters and their husband/fiance. I think the book holds a wealth of information for both the engaged (preferably) and the already married (to help understand the bumpy periods) to use as springboards for honest discussion between them.
The book is built upon Biblical teachings in an uplifting and enriching way. I mention that only because the author bases his entire logic on the tenet that both the husband and wife believe in God and Christ. However, I think an "open-minded" tolerant non-believer could also glean some beneficial, relationship-strengthening wisdom should he/she choose to read the book.
