Review 4 The Language of Love & Respect

The Language of Love & Respect by Dr. Emerson Eggerichs.

Although I am not married, The Language of love and respect has really revealed a lot to me about marriage I will most definitely practice in my own life as soon as its applicable.
Dr. Emerson breaks down the differences of males and females and defines it as the pink and blue. All throughout the book he uses verses and his own personal knowledge to add to his intensive study of the topic.
Dr. Emerson talks about how oppurtunities to be thankful for are always present, how to be thankful even if it doesn't feel natural.
In an excerpt from the book he writes, ' One of the major reasons we fail to speak T-U-F-T-S consistently to each other is our very human tendency to become more upset about our spouse's poor communication efforts than our own.'
The key word here is unconditional, loving unconditionally and showing ultimate respect even if its hard, its worth it to make your mate happy, 'speaking the Jesus way is what its all about.'
It was a great read, I would recommend it to any newlywed couple!
