What does a man need most from his wife? Arlene Pellicane, author of 31 Days to a Younger You, asked numerous husbands that question. Based on their answers, Pellicane identified five keys that will give wives a new appreciation and understanding of how to love and care for their mates.
- Domestic tranquilityA husband needs a peaceful haven.
- RespectA husband needs to be honored in his home.
- ErosA husband needs a fulfilling sex life.
- AttractionA husband needs to be attracted to his wife.
- Mutual activitiesA husband needs to have fun with his wife.
Along with identifying a husband’s needs, Pellicane provides practical instruction to motivate and equip wives to show their husbands the care and affection they long for. Every day a wife is either building her husband up or tearing him down. This book offers wives a 31-day, no holding back, life-changing building program for their marriages.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I love this resource! It is challenging and uplifting at the same time. I love being responsible for growing and being part of my own happiness! It makes the pressure of my husband constantly performing lessen! And I am able to see him respond to me loving him in a way I haven't before. (In response to the reviewer below I would say JUST TRY IT! I know that sometimes it can be daunting to open the bible and read, or close your eyes and pray but in an increasingly irreligious world I feel like we need more truth, comfort, grace, love, protection in our hearts and I know personally the word of God, his sweet voice does it!)
This book offers some good advice, but it was much more religious than I expected. As a non-religious person, I had trouble getting past the constant references to the Bible. The author often suggests praying and turning to God as a solution to marital problems. Some people may find this helpful, but it just wasn't the kind of book that I was looking for.
