Review: Well, he's done it again. The author of the #1 New York Times bestselling author of "The 5 Love Languages" has written another must-read for anyone who is in a relationship. Although the title of this book suggests that it is for married couples only, my husband and I both agreed that this would have been a nice resource to have while dating. It sure would have given us some helpful insight as we prepared for marriage.
This book answers some important questions like, "WHY shouldn't I have sex before marriage?" I was always told it was the 'wrong' thing to do - but no one ever spoke to me about why…other than the fact that it could get me pregnant and no single girl wants THAT. But Mr. Chapman spoke of some very valid, meaningful points about why staying a virgin is important. He goes on to speak about problems couples can face during their marriage regarding sex, and helps to shed some light into this sensitive and vulnerable area.
He goes into the relationship between spouse and inlays…how DO you deal with that "Monster In-Law?" He may not give a step-to-step guide on how to turn her into a wonderful, docile lamb, but he does give some very insightful tips into what the Bible says about respect, protecting your marriage, and promoting healthy relationships.
The book goes on to talk about financial struggles, how to make decisions…and WHO makes decisions?, the puzzle that is love, and so much more.
I've only been married three weeks, but this book sure has given my husband and I some great information to move forward in our new marriage with. This is a fantastic book.
