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!)
