Overview

It's no secret that men and women are different. And it's no secret that they don't always get along because of these differences, even when they love each other. But having a successful marriage is not about finding the perfect person to marry. It's about loving someone in an unselfish, Christlike manner. Whatever we want out of marriage--unconditional love, forgiveness, passion--that is what we have to give to our spouse. Rick Johnson shows couples how to go beyond merely tolerating each other's differences to using those God-given differences to add spice and passion to their relationship.

I had hoped this book would be good. But it seemed poorly written. The author rambled a lot. But mostly, he lost me at his statement that "men think about sex all of the time... even at funerals." What? That's ridiculous. That came off as extremely cliche, and it's extremely untrue. The author seems immature. I decided not to read anymore. I can't see how I could benefit from a book that uses cliche ideas and groups all men into one big giant glob. Not everyone is exactly the same and not all men are sex-crazed idiots. I read a few okay points before I got to the statement that turned me away. But nothing ground breaking.

This is a book that every adult should read in order to help their current or future relationships. Amazingly spot on with understanding of how men and women see things differently. It is an easy read book and is very understandable. It is written by a minister, but is not overly religious based, which I appreciated. I will recommend this book to everyone in my life, because I feel it truly can help everyone become better for themselves and for the ones they love.

Heres what i got out of it.... women shut up and have sex all the time, even schedule it. Men, women are emotional cry babies and you need to deal with it to get her to have sex with you. I get it can be a good read at times, because i actually lol at times SMH.

Depressingly shallow view of both husbands and wives.

I was just in a newly married 8 week course with this book and 4 other couples. We all loved it! Everyone got a major ahhh haaa for living, loving and respecting their spouse. The study guide is on Revell's web site or the authors and it's free too! Great group discussions and excellent take away understandings. Loved it
