He feels a strong attraction to her. She wonders if he could be "the one." In the glamorous haze of early romantic attraction it's hard to know whether a relationship will lead to true love-or to a negative or even catastrophic relationship. This book helps men and women who want healthy and satisfying marriages identify the early warning signs of an unhealthy relationship. Dr. Warren shows readers how to hold out for God's best for their lives instead of settling for the first one to come along and outlines the factors that increase the chances for marital success. For those who want to become wiser in their relationship choices, this practical guide will help them find the love they want and avoid the pain they don't need.
I didn't dislike this book, but I wasn't blown away by it either.Dr. Warren uses basic dating and relationship principles to stress matching with others who are nearly identical to you. He firmly believes our ideal soulmates are basically the same person as ourselves, just the opposite gender.

I don't agree with this. While I feel our soulmates, and mine specifically, do have a lot in common with us/myself, we aren't 100% identical. We have differences. We disagree on things. That's what makes us human, and that's what makes us perfect for each other. We balance out each other's flaws.

I'm not saying this book isn't worth it; it's a great book on finding what you truly want in a partner and how to find that person. But don't expect to agree with everything in this book; we all have our own opinions on relationships.

I received this book by purchasing it. I was not required to post a review, and the thoughts contained herein are my own.

  1. I agree with you! Opposites attract, right?! ;) My husband and I thought we had a lot in common when we first got together, but we really don't have a great deal in common, even though we mostly agree on the big things. It works, though.
