This book gives you A LOT to think about! It would be very beneficial for husbands and wives to read this together and talk about it. Some very interesting ideas and suggestions are in this book! The main idea of this book is to COMMUNICATE with your spouse. Tell them how you feel, especially about household work and the load each of you are carrying. Do you feel you are doing more than you can handle. Would you like more help from your spouse. Can you see a better way to help each other feel appreciated and loved. I LOVE that a lot of the stories in this book come from BOTH the husbands and the wives point of view! I agree that taking care of house and kids is the duty of BOTH spouses. We are PARTNERS and we are in this TOGETHER!
Okay, so you know I'm not married, and I'm not a man. So why would I sit down and read this book? For the simple reason that this book is well-written and has some of the most common-sense ideas for marriage that I have read. While this book would not have saved my marriage--that's a long story--I believe that this book contains some wonderful advice that could help out a lot of marriages out there.<br /> <br /> I love the fact that this is a book written for men by a woman. That may not make a lot of sense, but it does seem to work. I don't think most men would sit down and read this book on their own, but I liked the idea of wives reading to their husbands. I was surprised to discover just how ineffectively women communicate with men. I was always the wife who would tell her husband more than he bargained for. I never assumed he knew anything.<br /> <br /> Another area intrigued me, and I would have liked to have seen her mention it (because I understand this does happen more than you might believe). When I was married, my husband and I had a flip-flopped sort of relationship in the physical area. I craved physical intimacy quite regularly, and he was not generally interested. There are men who suffer from this, but I realize it is not the norm. If I had been married and reading this book, I would have wanted to know how to get my husband interested in the physical aspect of the relationship. But that's just coming from my experience.<br /> <br /> I really did not agree with her "strike," but then again, maybe that was what worked for her. I would have liked to have seen her be more careful when recommending this behavior because I think it could cause marriages to break-up in many instances. I did appreciate the appendices with more printable information for the family. I can see where that would be useful.<br /> <br /> I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
