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.

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.

Only wish I heard this sooner

I only wish I heard this sooner, but I pray the Lord helps me bring my marriage back together. I know I would like to consider this, but I don't know if he is willing to. But I've learned a lot through listening to this, and I know it will make me a better person over all. Thank you Dr Dobson!
