President Spencer W. Kimball once observed, "While marriage is difficult, and discordant and frustrated marriages are common, yet real, lasting happiness is possible, and marriage can be more an exultant ecstasy than the human mind can conceive."
Dr. Brent A. Barlow, associate professor in the Department of Family Sciences at Brigham Young University, offers timely insights and practical guidance on how couples can achieve just such a satisfying relationship in What Husbands Expect of Wives. In his marriage seminars and classes and in his column on marriage in the Deseret News, Dr. Barlow asked husbands to fill out a questionnaire about what they expected from their wives. Many of the husbands did, and Dr. Barlow gives their expectations in this book.
He discusses such topics as love, spirituality, support, motherhood, sexuality, communication, self-esteem, homemaking, and attractiveness, and how each of these areas contributes to a happy marriage. And he includes numerous quizzes, checklists, and activities that couples can work on together to understand and improve their marriages.
What Husbands Expect of Wives explains many of the common ideas of husbands about what marriage should be like, but it also discusses the general principles that create a good marriage, and wives and husbands alike will benefit from the sound advice in this much-needed book.
