Re: Dr. Dobson's When Love Must be Tough
I've have read this book and like many other Dr. Dobson books, it is full of "approved of" "Godstamped" ways of dealing with problems. If your world is like his, where everyone does that right thing all the time, behave correctly and respect the Bible, the way to handle problems in this book will not work for you. Most people aren't like this and won't respond to this. I've tried it and if your spouse only believes in the way she thinks and won't listen to you and your pleas to make things better, they won't listen to this either. They will only think that you're trying to tell them what to do and you will come off as "controlling".
