Janet and I have been listening to some of the Love & Respect CD’s again. Love & Respect by Emerson Eggerichs is the best stuff on marriage we’ve ever been through. We hosted a Love & Respect Conference here at GFC a while back and it ROCKED !
I was listening to a CD this morning after we worked out at JROBS. Here’s one of the key thoughts; both Science and Scripture reveal the same thing about the two deepest values/needs in marriage. Dr. John Gottman (Why Marriages Succeed or Fail) studied 2000 marriages over a 20 year period at the University of Washington and concluded the two key ingredients in marriage are: “Love & Respect”. The Bible said that 2000 years ago; “However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.” (Eph 5:33 NIV)
Men & Women, we are leaky vessels and every once in a while we need a reminder. Her key need is Love. His key need is Respect. Want to go deeper? Pick up a copy of LOVE & RESPECT by Emerson Eggerichs; you can get it in book form or on CD.
