Great book on Marriage Jan 19, 2007
Gary Smalley hits the nail on the head when he descibes what women really need from their husbands in this wonderful book. I have read many marriage books and this one will remain at the top. Any man would be wise to heed his advice. There is also a part of the book for women to learn what it is their husbands really need. Enjoy! Sharon
Lots of Good Insights but rigid . Apr 22, 2006
Smalley has alot of good insights but he is too rigid ,he places all of the responsibility on the husband . For a more balanced view try Haltzmans Secrets of Happily Married men or Michelle Weiner Davis .
Very sexist Dec 23, 2004
This book is written by a OLD man. His views express a time when life was good for men and hard for women. If the traditional marriage was such a nifty niche for women, then why aren't they still there? This book will only be satisying to men and the elderly. You will see alot more of these types of books in the future as men desperately try to hang on to the oppressively patriarchal society they created with their might makes right world order . As you can see, it's backfiring.
I Understand Where My Husband Is Coming From... Jul 2, 2001
This is the book that got my husband and I back on the same page in our relationship. We had become just parents, nothing more. Although it has a Christian spin, the author doesn't try to sugar coat the dealings that go on b/t a man and a woman. He gives it to you straight. My husband said he was dead on in the section that tells the wife how the husband is feeling. But what amazed me is how on point he was about the woman's point of view. It was downright scary. Best of all, my husband "got it". Something I couldn't get accross verbally or he stopped listening to me. Whatever. Get this book if you are about to give up on your relationship and just ask you partner to read the chapters on your point of view. You will open the doors of communication. Wonderful insightful work
Hidden Keys to a Loving and Lasting Marriage May 30, 2000
A few months ago my wife and I were having some troubles. I was at my best friends house talking about it when he handed me a book called "The Joy of Committed Love." I explained to him that no man would be caught reading a book with that title and he said..."Just open it to the flaged page showing 122 ways that men offend their wives. I read through 50 of them and put the book down...I had done all 50! I picked the book back up and read the last 72...I had done all of them as well! I borrowed the book and read it cover to cover on a business trip, and have been trying to buy my own copy since. "The Joy of Committed Love" has been reprinted as "The Hidden Keys to a Loving and Lasting Marriage." Just as soon as I type my last period I am placing an order for 3 more copies. Nothing in life is guaranteed...but this book worked for me...and now my wife and I could not be happier. If you care about your current relationship...or your next...Buy This Book!
