See all Product description Whereas some relationship book authors try to be polite and subtle when they stereotype and demean men (i.e.John Gray), Aumiller and Goldfarb spew raw, divisive rhetoric from the front cover to the end of the book.I used to date a loser who “worshiped” his supposed ex. Aumiller and Goldfarb have based this book on their experiences as psychologists.
(I wish I were kidding.) This is a serious red flag (showing no respect for boundaries) and you need to walk the other direction when you see it early in a dating relationship.
Save yourself a ton of grief and look for someone whose faith is visible and fruit is easy to assess. The number one trait you should look for in a spouse is someone who is willing to learn, change and grow.
Nice guys, bad boys, losers, lovers, tossers, crazies or keepers ... After all, by their reckoning, there are least 25 different types of such "losers", including the Abuser, the Wanderer, the Leech, Mr Ego and The Burdened Beast.
I listened to my pastor husband talk about love, honor and submission. He clarified how submission doesn’t mean abuse and happens in a context where the man is submitted to Jesus. If you didn’t know them, by observing their life would you say, “Wow, that person loves and follows Jesus!
Then he made his wedding joke directed at the bride, “You only have to submit to one man, and you picked him! ” If you had to them about their views on God, or if you had to spend hours on the phone trying to figure out if they “are” or “aren’t” a believer, be realistic.
