Dr. Emerson Eggerichs’ goal is to see every marriage built on a foundation of love and respect. But while men and women may not be from different planets, they certainly are different from one another. They think differently, communicate differently, and have different needs in a marriage relationship. In his book, Love and Respect, Dr. Emerson focuses on two characteristic differences: men desire respect while women yearn for love. A successful marriage hinges on these two simple needs.
Divided into three parts, Eggerichs’ book contrasts a “crazy cycle,” in which negativity in the marriage can spin out of control, with an “energizing cycle,” in which the husband learns to communicate love to his wife, and the wife respect to her husband, bringing peace and contentment to the marriage.
With clear examples and compelling research, Eggerichs gives married couples hope for bringing new life into their relationship by understanding each others needs and communicating clearly. This is a book that married couples will want to add to their library!
