Don't Go to Bed Angry: Stay Up and Fight by Deb DeArmond and Ronald G DeArmond

Don't Go to Bed Angry: Stay Up and Fight

Don't Go to Bed Angry: Stay Up and Fight

I have read several books on marriage, and observed as much as I can while living as a single adult. I have come across some excellent books which are obviously life-changing in the realm of marriage. Since I am single, I judge marriage books on God's word and basic Biblical wisdom as well as my parents' marriage. I try to imagine them, or myself in the future, using the book and its wisdom. This particular book didn't impress or excite me. The title sure gets the reader's attention. And I do agree that couples need to talk through their conflicts. That was a major point of the book I totally agreed with. I agree that marriages can crumble if either the husband or wife- or both- will not discuss hurts and problems. But some of the advice in the book included to much arguing which I didn't agree with. I understood where the authors were coming from because their personality types lead to argument. But more peaceable and loving people shouldn't get the impression that they need more arguing to make their marriage work! In short, this book has a lot of good and will probably help many couples who need more vocalization in their marriage.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.
