I like his take on if the wife makes more money or handles finances because she is better at it; but doesn't mean she is the leader of the household and to look at Proverbs 31, verses on how a woman is able to manage finances.

"Be satisfied with what God has given you" (page 40) and author elaborates on pornography and images they gather in their minds. I also enjoyed the clarification on "wife of his youth" meaning to keep their mindsets on what first attracted them to their wives--their beauty. We will change in old age, and good to remember what first attracted us to our mates. My favorite section was on "soul-mate" and commitment near the end of the book (90+ pages).

There are other examples of relationships and how they handle certain issues in the marriage. This is for married or soon to be married couples and may enjoy these passages of the book. I enjoyed Mindy's scenario. There was another on weight emphasis. A man will have to love me for who I am, since we fluctuate in weight due to different factors.

He has a combination of biblical examples, real-life scenarios, and his own insightful content on the subject at hand.

*I received an eBook copy from author for radio appearance on Dream Your Midnight Hour.

4.25 stars.

Adrienna In one chapter, is quoted from chapter 6 of his previous book, for several pages. I skimmed through.
