About the Book
Like most brides on their wedding day, you no doubt were filled with love for your husband and the hope of a happy life together. But perhaps today, as the realities of life together have settled in, those happy expectations are going unfulfilled. And it's tempting to think, "If only my husband would change, I'd be happy."

That myth is but one of many that Rhonda Stoppe dispels in her easy-to-read exploration of what it takes to experience a truly happy marriage. In the process, she addresses such important topics asunderstanding your husband's need for your unconditional respectrekindling the love that drew you to your husband in the first placerefusing to believe the lie that you'd be happier married to someone elselearning to be content in the midst of financial strugglesthinking about sex from a biblical worldview

If you desire to rekindle the love and hope you felt on your wedding day, this book will go a long way toward making that dream come true. (Goodreads)

My Thoughts
Of course the title of this book grabbed my attention because who in the world writes a Christian book like that?! And then you see the small print, clever! So I would say that this is a good description for those who thought their entire world would be happily ever after once they were married. Also, in reality you do find a lot out about your man once married, even if you have been dating a long time. This book had some great funny stories, some realistic “I can’t believe that just happened” stories, and Biblical truths about marriage. Honestly, the majority of this book was nothing I hadn’t read. I’ve been married almost five years and have gone through more marriage books than I can count. This one is good for those who have been married a little while. If you are just married and read this book, you might not totally understand what the author is getting at.
I would say this is a good book to keep on hand and read every few years. Things change, and she reminds us women why we got married in the first place.

I recommend to the married gals who have had a year or two anniversary. Five stars.
