The Love You Want, The Respect He Needs

in the generous life

A week or so ago I recommended an article on the Love & Respect blog ~ Respect During Tough Times. The article was addressed to women and very eloquently showed the power of respect in a marriage.

I just read their next blog post addressed to men ~ Darkest Before the Dawn. It’s pretty amazing and though it’s directed to men, I think it might help a few women who are wearing a bit thin in their marriage.

There is hope.

I highly recommend this ministry to you and would encourage y’all to read their book Love & Respect. I’ve read it and used it in a book study with couples. There is also a DVD series that several of my friends have watched and they want to go through it again. They felt  it significantly impacted their marriage and they want to keep working the principles into their marriage.

This book will show you the power of unconditional love and unconditional respect. As you and your spouse use these powerful tools, you can save a struggling marriage from the divorce court or a “ho-hum” marriage from boredom and concealed bitterness. If you have a good marriage, you can make it even better.  Emerson Eggerichs

I live in an emotional abusive relationship. Would the book “Love and Respect” touch on the subject? or are their better books? Next trick I need to know is how to get the abuser to read it. I love my wife even though she pushes me away. I want our relationship to work.

Thanks in advance for any help you can send my way.

@Sydney I would encourage you to get the book and not mention it to your wife. Just read it and begin to live it. A part of the book talks about the “crazy cycle.” You can do a lot to improve your marriage by not engaging in the crazy cycle. At that point, seeing change in you, she might be curious and/or willing to read the book.
