Book Description

A Marriage Book with a Difference!

A Revolutionary Message
ôIÆve been married 35 years and have not heard this taught.ö
  • ôThis is the key that I have been missing.ö
  • ôYou connected all the dots for me.ö
  • ôAs a counselor, I have never been so excited about any material.ö
  • ôYouÆre on to something huge here.ö
A Simple Message
A wife has one driving needùto feel loved. When that need is met, she is happy. A husband has one driving needùto feel respected. When that need is met, he is happy. When either of these needs isnÆt met, things get crazy. Love and Respect reveals why spouses react negatively to each other, and how they can deal with such conflict quickly, easily, and biblically.

A Message That Works
Based on over three decades of counseling, as well as scientific and biblical research, Dr. Emerson Eggerichs and his wife, Sarah, have already taken the Love and Respect message across America and are changing the way couples talk to, think about, and treat each other. What do you want for your marriage? Want some peace? Want to feel close? Want to feel valued? Want to experience marriage the way God intended? Then why not try some Love and Respect.

4.0 out of 5 stars Saving my marriage 10 Dec. 2011
Thank you Emerson for writing this book. After almost 10 years of marriage and constant fighting and hate; this book was the answer to my fasting and prayers and tears. Bottom line is, I had no respect for my husband and treated him like he was an alien. My lack of respect and utter comtempt for my husband came from a reaction to his behaviour which in turn lead us onto the crazy circle, which simply spun out of control - divorce or suicide (murder was out of the question) seemed to be the only options left ...That was until God led me to this book .. it was as if I had finally been forgiven ....Its about three months since I bought this book and read it and I can tell you all that my husband and I have not had ONE quarell since ..... unbelievable. Has he changed ... yes and no. He still is who he is, with his annoying habits and personality, but all I do is keep my big mouth shut and then when I've calmed myself down; I speak respectfully to him and then I see the other side of him .. the side I never let out .. perhaps the side I feel in love with ... finally come out ... he is a good man and I am ashamed of myself ... I have been the evil evil wife ... and I didnt even know. I was just killing this man with no idea ... Now we are slowly rebuilding our relationship .. sometimes he is loving and it is worth it. I have read all the hundreds of reviews on (there are more reviews there) about this book and not ONE; even the most negative ones, say that a man does not need respect. Women, men need this thing called respect, even if we dont get it, even if it annoys us - it doesnt matter ... they really need to be respected . full stop ... never shout (back) at your man. Thank you Emerson, may God bless you and your family.

Im not married, but am having problems with showing respect to my boyfriend due to the bad relationship with my father and my parents' unhappy marriage. This is why the principles in the book are so hard for me to accept even though Im a Christian. But I feel that if you do use them in your relationship it will definitely be stronger and more loving. I keep praying to God for the healing of my heart and passed the book to a friend who has problems in her marriage. I recommend it to everyone!

By Samsam
I get married on the 6th of July 2013; some of you will be reading this before then, others after.

This books is helpful to those in any relationship with the opposite sex, uncovering funder-mental truths and insights that are then explained and clearly in-bedded into the fabric of this book, showing you how to live them out.

Love and Respect shows you how things can go wrong, why things go wrong, how to prevent things going wrong and the results that a healthy and proper relationship/marriage can hold.

No one plans to have a poor or unhealthy marriage, but as things develop and as time passes that is precisely the place you can end up, without even knowing how you got there, I want to be prepared, to put things in place NOW to alter the course of tomorrow, so in 50 years, when I look back at our life and marriage with my wife beside me I know I did all I could to love her and she did all she could to respect me!

A MUST buy for all couples, who are in any stage within their relationship!

For your information: I asked top leaders from some of the best Churches across Europe and North America for their opinion on what is the top marriage book. After going through their answers the top ones mentioned time and time again are:

1, Love & Respect by Emerson Eggerichs
2, Things I Wish I'd Known Before We Got Married by Gary Chapman
3, The Five Love Languages: The Secret to Love That Lasts by Gary Chapman
4, His Needs, Her Needs: Building an Affair-Proof Marriage by Willard F. Harley
5, Sacred Marriage: What If God Designed Marriage to Make Us Holy More Than to Make Us Happy? by Gary L. Thomas
6, Sheet Music: Uncovering the Secrets of Sexual Intimacy in Marriage by Kevin Leman (with this one I have been advised to only read it a couple of weeks before I get married!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Life saver! 31 July 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
We've read a whole lot of books out there on marriage. They were all helpful in some way or the other. But have to admit "Love & Respect" has been the best a life saver.

The book does embrace a Christian worldview, but it is also science based. The simple principles in this book has worked wonders in our marriage. We have never experienced such change ever before. Would definitely recommend this to anyone!
