A New York Times best-selling marriage book making a difference! More than one million copies sold!
Based on over three decades of counseling, as well as scientific and biblical research, Dr. Emerson Eggerichs and his wife, Sarah, have already taken the Love & Respect message across America and are changing the way couples talk to, think about, and treat each other. What do you want for your marriage? Want some peace? Want to feel close? Want to feel valued? Want to experience marriage the way God intended? Then why not try some Love and Respect.
A wife has one driving need--to feel loved. When that need is met, she is happy. A husband has one driving need--to feel respected. When that need is met, he is happy. When either of these needs isn’t met, things get crazy. Love & Respect reveals why spouses react negatively to each other, and how they can deal with such conflict quickly, easily, and biblically.

On the money! Married for going on 18 years now and I’ve never come across material that comes this close to the balanced teaching and highest standards that I believe God Himself etched on me about what His heart & mind about marriage is, right from my youth!!

It offers hope untarnished on a platter of gold, and I’ve scooped it all up, with cupped arms that are filled & profusely overflowing!!!

Great book based on the eternal truth about marriage, practical in every way - a treasure worth finding for absolutely every married couple and those looking forward to it.

An alternative take on marriage and the differences between the male and female characters. A good read for couples in marriage or heading in that direction.

Life changing potential for sure.

Where does Love and Respect rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Since it has helped my wife and I in the beginning of our marriage make it past a very difficult time I'd have to rate it number 2. Only second to the Bible that the principles the content is based on is number one I'll have to say.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Love and Respect?

When he speaks of the "Crazy cycle" that's spot on. Using a Biblical solution is the key to my trusting what he said in the first place.

What does Emerson Eggerichs bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He's expressive in his voice and intonations.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

The books name is good enough.

Any additional comments?

I've spoke to quite a few men with long term marriages since reading this book. The principle of "Love and Respect" is invariably at play in each of them in some form or another.

The best book I've heard in a long time. It is exactly what two loving couples need that go on the crazy cycle, but genuinely want to improve their relationship. It is enlightening. It can be applied to every relationship in life. My partner and I both read the book. Then we'd talk about what we've learned. It has re-energized our relationship and given us hope.
