Many people would dismiss this book because of its Christian perspective but these guys (there are two authors) are clinical psychologists first and work from a perspective that a marriage is worth fighting for and can be strengthened with will on both sides, despite the problems that inevitably creep up in life.
Maybe I should not read this until I have such issues; yet, I'm proactive. However, there are couple's stories that I guess I'm least interested since I'm not in such a relationship at this time. Skimming the good parts.

So far, this is the best part of the book:
"James tells us that we sin because we are carried away by our own desires: 'Each one is tempted when, by his own desire, he is dragged away and enticed. Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when...more
I read this book off and on in the past eight or so months. I learned a great deal about myself, my marriage, and the complexities of relationships. I saw myself from another perspective, which was interesting and a growing experience. My husband didn't read it and probably never will considering how I needed to take many breaks to digest and regroup. It would be ideal if we both read it.

I really like what Henry Cloud writes. I had been reading this book for over 6 months here and there! I found alot of the information helpful. Alot of information in this book has a spiritual aspect to it. I found alot of the story sinerios interesting and I could relate to alot of them at times.
I read this book and used the workbook as I went through it. I've learned a lot. Hopefully I'll be able to put these positive attitudes and behaviors into my daily life and make my marriage better.
This book is a great read and you don't have to be married to appreciate it. We all have relationships that would benefit from the attitudes and information in this book.
Great stuff that will help any marriage become stronger.
