WHAT YOU LIKED/DISLIKED:
The Five Love Languages really is a must read for just about everyone, hopefully before they get married.
I noticed that he sells books on christian websites. Is there a religious element to this book?

TITLE: The Proper Care & Feeding of Husbands
RATING:****
AUTHOR(s): Dr. Laura Schlessinger
PUBLISHER: HarperCollins
ISBN:0060520612
WHAT YOU LIKED/DISLIKED: This is a no nonsense book for women that tells them exactly how to treat a good man. She talks about how the women's suffragist movement has ingrained negative ideas of men and marriage into women's minds. She suggests simple changes that women can do to create a happier marriage. The negative aspect of this book is that it only focuses on the negatives that women do.

WHAT YOU LIKED/DISLIKED:
This book talks about the different ways men & women feel loved. Women feel love when he's loving; men feel loved when she's showing him respect. It refers to the 'crazy cycle' marriages sometimes are one when: he's not going to love her until he gets respect; she's not going to respect him until he is more loving. This cycle continues until one of them 'grows up' and decides to take the first step & give their spouse what they need most: Love or Respect. DH & I read this & did the workbook. Very helpful to us both. Helped us understand that we're not necessarily wrong; we both just need to 'tweak' some things. This book is christian based, but it does not 'shove' it down your throat so to speak.

We also read the 'Five Love Languages" and watched the DVD. That was also very insightful.
