If My Husband Would Change, I'd Be Happy by Rhonda Stoppe

I've been married a long time and I've read a lot of marriage books. Rhonda Stoppe's If My Husband Would Change, I'd Be Happy skyrocketed to the top of the list within the first few pages. This is the best marriage book for wives that I've ever read. She pulls no punches and lays it all out on the table. Marriage takes work. A lot of work. There is no simple way to have a happy marriage, it is a daily decision to cultivate it and work at it. Rhonda points the reader directly to God as the creator of marriage and as the only one through whom all relationships will grow. Fabulous book and highly recommended. The only thing I didn't like was all of the references to her other books that were scattered through the pages like commercials during your favorite TV show. Just stick to the story. The interruptions were boring and got to be pretty annoying.

About the book: 

If My Husband Would Change, I'd Be Happy: And Other Myths Wives Believe (Harvest House, August 2015)

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 as

-understanding your husband's need for your unconditional respect
-rekindling the love that drew you to your husband in the first place
-refusing to believe the lie that you'd be happier married to someone else
-learning to be content in the midst of financial struggles
-thinking 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.
Contains discussion questions and personal reflections at the end of each chapter.
