Reviews - What do customers think about Living with Your Husband's Secret Wars?
A little tough love. Jan 20, 2007
I thought this book would be one where forgiveness was better than judgement. Unfortunately, despite how well it is written, it throws the book at any offender who may so much as appear to be sneaking. I think that it really needs to focus on communication, wound healing, and loving so much the multitude of minor infractions are forgiven, and any few serious ones are dealt with the hope of reconciliation. Many adults, whether male or female, are growing up seriously in need of serious help. Divorce should never be the first or middle option..... it should be the last. That is tough love.
Not for wives of husbands who want to change Mar 11, 2005
I read this book for a friend and it was nowhere near as good as Breaking Free (by Russ Willingham) that my husband and I read to address the same problem. From what I gathered, Marsha Means has never herself experienced sexual betrayal, just the fear of it. She has some basic info on codependency in the book, but I would argue that the wife chapter in Breaking Free is just as practical without all the scary stories with no resolution. If your husband wants to change, read Breaking Free together and leave this one on the shelf. You might find yourself loving your husband through his not-so-secret wars, not just living with him.
very helpful Jan 3, 2005
I have found this book to be very helpful in overcoming my husbands sexual addiction and affairs. I have referred back to it for guidence a lot in the past year. I highly suggest it to spouses who are struggling with a sexual addict.
Excellent and helpful Oct 26, 2004
This book was very helpful to me at a difficult time in my life, when it seemed like nobody understood. In fact, at times I felt like she took thoughts right out of my mind. I feel that if you are in the position of having an unfaithful spouse, you will find that you are not alone and there is help.
At last... May 26, 2004
At last a book that really speaks to my heart. This book covers so many of the different types of sexual addiction out there. Yes, it does have a Christian foundation in the recovery process, but that is what I needed. When testimonials are given by other women, they speak to my heart and help with the grief. Sexual addiction is a struggle of morality. It violates our wedding vows, it makes you wonder who you have been lying next to in bed, going to church with, and eating family dinners with. This book has helped me understand this is not my problem, but I can be there for him. So many books send the message that it's his problem so I should go off and take care of myself, to heck with him. This book gives a hope to repair my broken heart and be there for him.
