Last week we covered how men can express love to their wives.  This week we’ll be going over some ways women can show respect to their husbands.

If this article ever blows up I imagine a lot of women will be pushing back against this idea of showing respect to their husband with the misinformed notion that it means they’re lowering themselves to that of a doormat when that isn’t really the case.  That or they’ll use some excuse like “He needs to earn my respect” (see part 1 of this series to learn why this is a bad excuse to use).

We also introduced the Crazy Cycle and how it feeds into itself until a marriage becomes a horrific mess.

Today, we are going to discuss what is arguably the primary reason for disputes in a marriage involving two well-meaning people: The breakdown of communication. Continue reading “Love & Respect: Blue and Pink Glasses”

For the month of December, I will be relieving Cynic of duty to cover a book I’ve been reading called Love & Respect.  This book was suggested to me by a Twitter friend, Tex.  Before I went out and bought the book, I decided to listen to some sermons centered around the message of Love & Respect and was so impressed I went out and bought it the next day.
