Like most brides on their wedding day, you no doubt were filled with love for your husband and the hope of a happy life together. But perhaps today, as the realities of life together have settled in, those happy expectations are going unfulfilled. And it’s tempting to think, “If only my husband would change, I’d be happy.”
That myth is but one of many that Rhonda Stoppe dispels in her easy-to-read exploration of what it takes to experience a truly happy marriage. In the process, she addresses such important topics as
understanding your husband’s need for your unconditional respect
rekindling the love that drew you to your husband in the first place
refusing to believe the lie that you’d be happier married to someone else
- learning to be content in the midst of financial struggles
- thinking about sex from a biblical worldview
If you desire to rekindle the love and hope you felt on your wedding day, this book will go a long way toward making that dream come true.
Contains discussion questions and personal reflections at the end of each chapter.
This is a realistic yet humorous look at what we think marriage will be like, and the reality. The author starts right out talking about her honeymoon constipation and how everything started moving while visiting “Old Faithful.” You can’t get more transparent than that, and immediately she earned my trust.
This is a huge topic in marriage that few want to admit. We have such rosy ideas when we get married, and reality sets in. Our spouse isn’t perfect. And in our mind, we think we know how to fix them.
This book shares all of that and gives realistic things to do not to change your spouse, but improve your marriage. It explains the other myths out there.
I really enjoyed this. I have been there with that line of thinking and at times, my mind returns to that place. No one wins. But you can win by reading and applying the information in this book.
I highly recommend.
