Love and Respect--Two Very Important words and feelings in a marriage, and yet so many misunderstandings come because of an imbalance of them. Take a journey with me while I explore this wonderful little "gift book" titled "Love and Respect For A Lifetime". It is 154 absolutely beautiful glossy pages that are full of helpful, practical insight for a healthy and happy relationship. It will be perfect for any age couple, at any stage of their commitment, not to mention it will look great sitting on a coffee table ( being read, not collecting dust).

About the Book
Based on Biblical principles, Love and Respect by Dr. Emerson Eggerichs, Is an excellent book for any age “couple”. Whether they are husband and wife or girlfriend and boyfriend, this book can help to enlighten each one to the other’s needs. The woman’s priority in the relationship is “to be loved”. The man’s “is to be respected.” He helps us to understand that to have a healthy marriage, there has to be a balance of both. This little book is easy to read, but packed with so much useful information. It would definitely make a good little wedding gift. A nice way to get the couple started off on the “right foot” instead of trial and errors and personality clashes because of misunderstandings such as why my husband doesn’t act like he cares, or why the wife doesn’t show me respect. It can head those feelings off “at the pass”.
This book helps to shine a light on each person’s need so that when disagreements arise, they can be discussed rather than argued in anger where negativity can breed. A woman need not feel “unloved” nor a man “disrespected” just because of a disagreement. If handled the right way, marriages can stay happy and healthy through different opinions and disagreements for many years and this book can guide you in the right direction. It explains things in such easy terms to understand for example the woman needs to see out of the mans "blue tinted glassses and the man needs to see things from the woman's pink tinted glasses. In other words from each others points of view. The man needs to understand that the woman's need for love to be shown to her must be met, but at the same time, the man's need for respect deserves the same priority . There absolutely needs to be a balance, and this book tells how to do that. In my opinion anyone who reads this book will benefit from the practical advice to God's Word.
I have been married almost 25 years, and I am definitely going to put this book into practice. I know that it will definitely enrich my marriage and help me to make my husband a happier confident spouse.
I definitely recommend this book to ALL couples, young and elderly. It’s never too learn to start understanding what God wants for us in our marriage.
