Dr. Dobson, i am born anew in your genius.
Great Small Group Study Tool Aug 27, 2006
My wife, two daughters ages 14 and 16, and I are currently working through a chapter a day with this book. I read aloud the chapter and we discuss points brought up and expierences from our own marriage. It works very good for this. The chapters are not too long except for chapter 5 "Fundamentals of a Christain Marriage" which we broke into sections.
This would be a great way to hold a study with your children as my wife and I are doing, with young couples, and with singles who hope to marry one day and go the distance.
My wife and two daughters do not see any demeaning of women as a couple of the negative reviews indicated. Those two people must be seriously biased for some reason.
Highly recommended for those who want to go the distance with a life long mate!
Love for a Lifetime: Building a Marriage That Will Go the Distance Dec 19, 2005
I found this book to not only be shallow and poorly written, but also insidiously demeaning to women. Rather than focusing on the individual strengths and weaknesses men and women bring to relationships, the author focused on the weakness and instability of women. In addition, his examples and analogies were often misplaced and poorly devised... certainly not illustrative of his points or of a healthy marriage. I found the content much too general with overuse of stereotypes. My fiancee and I have read Chapman's Five Love Languages and got a great deal more out of that exercise.
Great book!! Dec 2, 2005
I cannot recommend this book highly enough. Dr. Dobson is insightful and shares his wisdom with a gentle sense of humor that makes the book wonderful to read and reread!! Loved it!!! It was a great resouce for our marriage!
Love for a Lifetime is a great gift Sep 26, 2005
We think this book has a lot of good advice and thoughts for engaged or newly married couples - or really anyone. We give it as a gift at bridal showers and weddings often. Commitment, Communication and Christ are 3 of the things Dobson stresses as essential to a loving, lifelong marriage.
