Publisher's Summary

Boasting more than one million copies of his works sold, conservative radio personality Dr. James C. Dobson squarely addresses the problem of troubled marriages. He targets infidelity, alcoholism, spousal abuse, and emotional distance as the primary causes of divorce. Dobson also chooses to denounce homosexuality as an abomination. With his groundbreaking theory of "loving toughness", he offers a path toward solving marital problems, building family values, and rekindling lost romance.

Ideas v Action

The ideas and strategies presented, the knowledge given is amazing. It’s helped me engage with my soon-to-be-ex in different and positive ways. Applying this into action is much more difficult in such a highly emotional situation. I’ll give it another listen and keep working!

Timeless

Don’t judge a book by its (old) cover. Good info. Classic book. However, this method doesn’t apply across the board. They are some slightly different methods that I would also recommend — like “The Divorce Remedy.”

Love Dr Dobson’s Practical Advice

Although this book mostly addresses infidelity and that is not my problem in my marriage, Dr Dobson shares practical, biblical advise. Gave me hope.

A must read for couples who hope to stay together.

Highly recomended tool prior to entering marriage counceling after partial separation and hopefully before divorce. I relate to step 10 and being angry. I suffer more from codependance and being a victim of an alcoholic spouse now in recovery....trying to find right in their life. When hearing this audio book, I mostly substituted alcoholism and its negative effects in place of widely talked about marital unfaithfulness/ adultery as I feel for me it was more appropriate as it was as much a violation of trust as would be another lover.

Wisdom. Strait wisdom.

Doctor James Dobson is one of the people that helped my mother raise me. He is still taking me to school in this book as I learn how to not be a jerk to my wife. Thank you Dr. Dobson.
