Read it and Weep

Feb 17, 2011

Love is a many splendored thing.  Sadly, Gary Chapman doesn't like any of those splendors.  His view of  love has been shaped by more than 20 years as a marriage counselor to old Christian couples who got married very young and don't have anything in common.  He solves all these couples' problems using an easy two-step process:

  1. Make a list of things you want
  2. Tell your partner what you want

I know it sounds simple, but as we prove, Gary Chapman only counsels extremely simple people.  But the book is also pretty sad.  In Chapman's opinion, women have no physical desire for sex, but they love doing dishes.  All men want is sex, and they hate talking to their spouses.  These things are probably true, but it's pretty hard to listen to.
