OVERALL: Definitely read it.
|Click on the book to see it in Amazon.|
There are nine chapters:
1) Why Do People Marry?
2) Why Won't They Change?
3) What Love Really Means
4) "Listen to Me!"
5) Who Takes care of What?
6) Decisions, Decisions
7) "You Mean We Have to Work at Sex?"
8) Leaving and Honoring Parents
9) Love and Money
While each chapter has specific things that you can take away from them, depending on your situation, I think the book as a whole has a really great message and it definitely inspired some great conversation in this household! A few of my favorite take-aways:
"The supreme purpose of marriage is the union of two individuals at the deepest possible level and in all areas."
"Contrary to some popular psychological notions, all of our negative emotions do not need to be expressed. Some need to be starved."
"Healthy, meaningful communication is not a luxury; it is a necessity. There can be no unity without such communication."
"Before marriage, one's allegiance is to one's parents, but after marriage allegiance shifts to one's mate."
