When you said, “I do,” you entered marriage with high hopes, dreaming it would be supremely happy.

Millions of couples are struggling in desperate marriages. But the story doesn’t have to end there. Dr. Gary Chapman writes, “I believe that in every troubled marriage, one or both partners can take positive steps that have the potential for changing the emotional climate in their marriage.”

  • Recognize and reject the myths that hold you captive
  • Better understand your spouse’s behavior
  • Take responsibility for your own thoughts, feelings, and actions

  • A workaholic
  • Controlling
  • Uncommunicative
  • Verbally abusive
  • Physically abusive
  • Sexually abusive
  • Unfaithful
  • Addicted to alcohol or drugs
  • Depressed

Marriage has the same potential to be miserable as it does to be blissful. Read Loving Your Spouse When You Feel Like Walking Away to learn how you can turn things around.

My Review:

I decided to review Loving Your Spouse When You Feel Like Walking Away by Gary Chapman in hopes to help some of my friends who are having difficult times in their marriages. Loving Your Spouse When You Feel Like Walking Away addresses many issues like spouses who are irresponsible, a workaholic, depressed, controlling, verbally abusive, physically abusive, sexually abusive, uncommunicative, unfaithful and addicted to alcohol or drugs. Each chapter focuses on one of the above mentioned issues but focuses more on the issue than the solution. Most solutions are just seek counseling. There are a few insightful points through the book and the stories help the reader relate to other people going through similar situations.

I would recommend this book to anyone in a marriage with the understanding that I’m unsure if the subtitle “Real Help for desperate Hearts in Difficult Marriages” is accurate because this book rehashes the issues instead of offering much help.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free in exchange for my honest review from the publisher through the Moody Blogger Review Program. http://www.mpnewsroom.com/content/blogger-review-program I was not required to write a positive review.

Im a stay at home, homeschooling mom of six awesome kids. But for fun on the side like doodles in the margin, I like to sew, edit books, design websites, make homeschool resources, study Biblical dream interpretation, decorate cakes, and make pinatas along with many other things including graphic design. I love books and researching. There is always something to learn.
