Item description for Winning Your Husband Back Before It's Too Late by Gary Smalley & Greg Smalley...
Overview Full of practical advice and realistic encouragement, "Winning Your Husband Back" can help heal a marriage. And whether the marriage is healed or not, the ideas will also draw readers nearer to God.
Your marriage may be beginning to crumble. Or it may already be in shambles. Its present condition does not determine its future, though. You do.
Imagine building a home on a foundation of sand or mud. Renovating or redecorating your home would be senseless because at any moment the whole house could collapse due to a faulty foundation. Before changing flooring, wall colors, window treatments, and furniture, you would need to seek out an architect to first firm up the foundation.
Likewise, winning your husband back necessitates more than simply rearranging the old stuff in your relationship. You may decide to fight differently than you did in the past, but if the old unresolved anger is allowed to remain, then nothing will genuinely change in our marriage. "Winning Your Husband Back Before It's Too Late" targets the foundational weaknesses in your marriage. By developing an overall plan to win back your husband, you will learn how to:
Discover what causes distance in marriage
Understand the man you married
Examine personality differences
Communicate more successfully
"Winning Your Husband Back Before It's Too Late" can help you rebuild a strong marriage in which you and your husband see each other through Christ's eyes and become one in Him.

Reviews - What do customers think about Winning Your Husband Back Before Its Too Late?
Should do more reading before making a judgment Oct 12, 2006
The next three reviewers paint quite an unfair picture of this book as well as the author. One reviewer ends her comments by asking if the author has written a book to men challenging them to treat their wives right. She said, "didn't think so." Well that is plain wrong. He did write a book to men which was much more challenging to men than his advice to women. It's called "If Only He Knew: What No Woman Can Resist" and you can find it here on this site. In that book (which the reviewer has obviously not read) he tells the husbands that they are the ones ultimately responsible for trouble in their marriages. He says "if after 5 years of marriage there are still unresolved issues that he hasn't address, then it falls squarely on the HUSBAND's shoulders." How is that for responsibility? There was no blame on the wife... If you read both (all) of the author's books you will see he teaches a very consistent view of marriage and the husband/wife roles. However, if you only read one book with your own agenda, you will not present a fair evaluation of this book or any book for that matter. Ladies, this book will help you in your marriage. While you are at it, pick up the other book for your husband. :)
God must have told hubbies to leave-wives-thank Him for it Mar 26, 2006
If women have to look to God to figure out why their husbands walk out, does that mean husbands bail out on God's advice? Do they need to talk to God too? Has this writer written a book for men who have selfishly left wives and children behind with similar instructions on what to do to be better men in order to be received back into the graces of their families? I didn't think so...
PUTRID Dec 23, 2004
This book is terrible. I wish people (women in general) would ditch the atiquated, sexist and misogynistic teachings of the bible (and most religions) as they do more harm than good. A friend was given this book after her marriage failed (he ran off with an uneducated 18 yr old) and she called me crying because she thought that maybe if she was a stupid, submissive sex toy with no will of her own, her marriage would still be intact. Surely not! I read the book and was appalled. Then I thought, why am I surprised? This is written by an old fart with archaeic values that no longer hold true. Relax, ladies. Most of these types of people will be dead in 20 or 30 years and the world will be a better place. Live your life well, make smart decisions, stay away from anything that causes harm and be good to others. Everthing will be allright, I promise you.
Side note: My friend remarried a wonderful man who isn't threatend by a smart, independent free thinking woman. He doesn't want her to be anything but who she is. Yes, those men do exist (and they're not ninnies).
Bible-beating hogwash!! Jul 29, 2004
There isn't anything in this world that would entice me to be anything but equal to my husband. This book not only encourages women to become submissive to their husbands, but it essentially tells them that they would have to in order to save their marriages. It tells women that they, and only they, are responsible for the condition, and ultimately the repair, of their marriages, and that their husbands are essentially blameless. It also tells women that they shouldn't expect be very high on their husband's list of priorities because God doesn't want it that way. According to this book, the only way to save your marriage is to change absolutely everything about yourself in order to become what the Bible (a book written by men!) says you should be. Hogwash! I resented just about every piece of advice in this book, and I don't know how to follow this advice without losing all my self-respect and dignity in the process. I love my husband very much, but he could never respect the person this book wants me to be, and neither could I.
Helpful, but should be 2nd! Apr 16, 2003
First, the title of the book does not describe the contents. It should be titled "keeping the husband you have." 2nd: Please DO NOT READ THIS BOOK FIRST if your husband has left you. Please read "Love Must be Tough" by Dr. James Dobson. The contents of Winning Your Husband contains the first steps of when your husband leaves, but it is on the 2nd to LAST Page!
