Save Your Marriage Positive Read

I love this book me and my husband are separated but it helps me spot my own weaknesses and helps me cope with what was once sadness. I really enjoy this book and it has helped me except myself and look to Jesus for help and to mold me to become a better person.

Ready to give up?

Are you ready to give up on your marriage? If so, I highly encourage you to read this book before choosing to walk out. The end goal of a separation should be restoration not dissolution of a marriage. This book will help you walk through the difficult process of performing critical surgery on your marriage.

Very religious - bible scripture

I love the authors prior book. 5 love languages which I recommend over this book. so thought I'd try this one more specifically to a struggling marriage. It's almost completely scripture based and by far too religious for me. Only gave it two stars

Good lessons over all.

Where does One More Try rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

little bit below average

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

He recommended a book by Judith Wallerstein. Will be reading that next.

Least: the really religious parts.

Any additional comments?

This is another great book from Gary Chapman. But it was heavy on the religious side. There where a couple chapters including the begging that where only about religion/god.
Recently i have started practicing my higher power as self-actualization and also working on mindfulness. So listening to the religious parts I was able to turn those around to work for me at least in some parts. But was still a little preachy.

Solid advice

Super good advice. Although it is difficult, this book helped me to realize what some of the dysfunction is that I bring to my marriage and how I can improve, whether my wife will or not. It was also very thorough in a book that was not especially long.

Too much Biblical content, too little real advice

I was surprised to see how far he went with the biblical part. For me it was a waste of money and time.

Same as another book by Chapmam

I am disappointed because I paid for this audible book and it was almost the exact same information and stories as another book he has written, which I had already purchased and listened to. I was expecting something new. 😞

Great insight for both spouses

I think this book is for everyone in a hard marriage and gives great recommendations on how to turn the relationship around as well as where else to turn for help.. Good, quick read as well.

this is not a manual to save your marriage !

this is a proselytizing religious pamphlet.
I got a lot from the 5 love languages book and when I saw this I was really hopeful for some help.
There is no comfort here, just snide admonitions that the problems with your marriage are because you aren't godly enough.

about as comforting as a hug in broken glass.

Heavy Bible reference

It should be noted to non-Christians that this audiobook has heavy bible reference. The book says so itself. But listen with an open mind. Take the good lesson you can get because it does carries good pointers that are very helpful.
