This book is one of the first marriage books I ever read. We went through a difficult time after we first got married and I was thinking some "worldly" thoughts of how to handle our problems. I decided to read this marriage book that my sister had given me as a wedding gift. It truly changed how I thought, what I did, how I reacted and overall it changed our marriage for the better. I highly recommend this book if you are looking to improve your marriage, who knows it might completely change your life like it did for me and my husband.

i have to say that i am a believer in the order of the home as represented in the bible. i also have to say that this book is so backwards it isn't even funny. EVERYTHING is the wife's fault. nothing is the husband's fault, and if it is, it ends up being the wife's fault after all. when it comes to sex, his views are borderline abusive. as a sex abuse victim myself, i find it very hard to swallow that my 'job' is pretty much nothing more than to keep my husband sexually satisfied. because of course, if i don't, he will cheat and it will be my fault. obviously, the author has no education or experience with women of abuse or he would not put such a heavy burden on them. i have a very hard time seeing this book as 'biblical'. that is kind of worrisome to me. i guess anyone can write whatever they want under a 'christian' banner.

This book points out the differences between men and women which are relevant, but the most important point that I wish had been included is the idea that both men and women need love and respect. You really can't have one without the other.

Whether you are already married, planning to marry or in a relationship you will definitely want to read this book. It is very well written and will enlighten you to new ideals that you may not have been aware of before. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

I bought this book thinking it was a spiced up version of "Love and Respect," but it's apparently just excerpts of the book with some pictures. I wish I had bought the original book instead. However, if this gift edition's quotes are any indication of what the original book is like, it seems that the contents are very basic, simple principles that most Christians would know from reading through the Bible and listening to a few sermons on marriage. I don't think I will bother purchasing the original book after getting a preview of it from this gift edition.

I was very dissappointed with this book, although beautifully layed out and "pretty" pages, it said one thing over and over again that could have been said in an opening paragraph. Nothing new either, was hoping for a good practical book on marriage, all it did was point out men and women's differences.

This book helped me to understand why I do what I do, and why he does what he does, and how to break the negative cycle and have a better relationship. It was written in an honest manner, showing that we are human and even when we blow it, we can admit our mistake and get back on track quickly.
I highly recommend this book even if you aren't in a relationship because it will help you with co-workers as well. It gave great insight on looking at things from another perspective and then getting a balance.

Love and Respect for a Lifetime was a short and to the point look at what men and women need most in a relationship. The author, Dr. Emerson Eggerichs accurately deduces that our needs as men and women differ. Men need and crave respect just as women desire love above anything else. This Gift Book would be make a great gift for any couple.
I really enjoyed reading this book. Because it is a Gift Book it is a quick read. However, there is a lot of great information contained in its pages. The author does a great job showing biblical support for each point he makes but also shows the reader the logic behind why it is the way it is. I was able to read this book in one setting but at the end I really wished there was more to read because the information contained in it was just that good. My only problem with the book was the formatting or layout. By looking at the graphics on the pages it is obviously targeted at women. I don’t know many men that would just pick this book up of the shelf and read it on their own. Plus the formatting made it difficult to read at times. The information in the pages is great, the formatting, not so much. However, it is still worthwhile to pick up and invest the hour in your marriage that will pay off for a lifetime.

This is a great little gift book. It is cute and full of great Bible verses on love, respect and forgiveness in a marriage. It would be a great gift for newlyweds or anyone married.
Love and Respect by Dr. Emerson Eggerichs has some really great advice in it. The manner the information is presented is very locical and straightforward. It goes into how women don't always want a "fix" to a problem but rather want to be heard while men like to go do things as a way of feeling close. Dr. Eggerich uses biblical principals and verses to back up what he says in almost all instances.

I was originally pretty excited for it to arrive in the mail because some of the small groups in our USA “sending” church have been studying it and had good things to say about it. When it arrived and it was just the coffee table version, I will admit it, I was disappointed! It is pretty and hardbound but not really a sit down and read it for hours kind of a book! All that said it does offer Godly marriage advice to couples in very easy to digest portions.
The book has a great message, nothing new or earth shattering if you have ever read a marriage advice book before. In some respects, it felt like the author had almost over simplified his advice. The way the author breaks it down it would seem that he believes all women would feel a certain way and all men would feel the polar opposite. I f we remember not to ignore our individuality, this book serves as good reminder to try our best to meet our spouses needs, because as the author points out no one else can! Would I recommend this book, perhaps, just not the coffee table version!

This book explains a God-given need between husbands and wives--men NEED respect and women NEED love--based upon the Scriptural passage of Ephesians 5:22-33.
It is a great book for newlyweds, long-time marriages, and even engaged couples. It is written in a light-hearted, simple manner, which makes it easy to pick up and read again and again. I would recommend it as a general reference for Christian marriages or even as a small study group book. It also makes a nice wedding or anniversary gift.

Love and Respect for a Lifetime was an excellent book. It brings out the differences between men and women and how those differences can be bridged with love and respect. According to the author, Dr. Emerson Eggerichs, women need to show their husbands more respect and women absolutely need love. "It's as simple and as complicated as that.." This is a great read for all married and even engaged couples who would like to strengthen their relationship and learn more about each other.

The basic need of women: LOVE.
The basic need of men: RESPECT.
Such a simple statement yet hard to apply. Dr. Emerson Eggerichs wrote a book entitled LOVE and RESPECT for a lifetime to give couples a head start on how they can better understand their spouses. The volume illustrates a biblical and correct view on things that should be the first goal of husbands and wives in their relationship. Dr. Eggerichs straightforwardly enumerated how to LOVE women and offered tips on how to RESPECT men. As complicated as it may seem, the couples should try to better understand their partners through looking at each other's glasses: Men should look at girl's pink eyeglasses while women should do the same in their man's blue shades.

This book is an absolute MUST for ANY person who is married, dating, or thinking of marriage. It is VITAL to understanding your mate. My marriage was on the brink of divorce almost a year ago and it was the concepts in Emerson's book and workshops that saved it!

This book is written to married couples and focuses directly on the love and respect that women and men as individuals need. Through the use of many examples Dr. Eggerichs reinforces the principal of women need love and men need respect. The book covers not only what each gender needs, but also a different perspective and tools to utilize to improve communication.The 155 pages are a nice quick read. The organization and quotes used throughout state things into a different manner to reinforce the content. Although there was not necessarily anything new in this book, the content still provoked thought. The book states Conflict is inevitable; it is simply a part of living together. The reader is asked to thing beyond their normal reactions and to stop and think before responding.From the cover its as simple and as complicated as that the reader realizes that the principals covered would be simple to understand. It is in the living out the truth that makes this complicated. The book is a nice simple gift book. I would give it a 3 out of 5 it was a nice little read, but didnt really walk away with anything new.Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze.com book review bloggers program.

This is a very beautiful and good quality gift book. Hard cover, 155 pages. It is not very wordly. So you can read through all pages very fast. Main points are being highlighted. Good for those people who don't have much time to read. Based on over three decades of counseling, and scientific and biblical research, the author of this book Dr. Emerson Eggerichs, shows couples how to have a happier and more fulfilling marriage. It stresses a lots on respect and love. You can see it keep on popping up very often, to keep on reminding the important of love and respect to women and men. However I think, more examples on how a man shows his love to his wife, and how a woman shows her respect to her husband would be better. As we all know, man and woman does not see things and feel it the same way, the wife may think she's respecting the husband but the husband may not feel the same and vice versa. Thus more examples will be great.I will rate this book 3 out of 5.Disclosure: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze.com book review bloggers program.
