In Have a New Husband By Friday, author Kevin Leman shows women how making a few changes in attitude, behavior, and communication style can revolutionize their marriages and bring out the very best in their husbands. Leman's popular common sense method sprinkled with his humorous wit makes his advice to women irresistible and easy to swallow.
As someone who's recently gotten married, and still technically in the period of the honeymoon year, one would think I wouldn't need this book. Well it's always better to be prepared in case of unexpected turn of events right? The main purpose of this book is the help women be able to communicate with the husbands in the hopes of a better marriage. Communication is usually the biggest factor in problems in a marriage. This book explains the differences between men and women and how women should use those differences to help change their own attitudes and help them figure out their husbands.
Usually I have trouble with reading marriage books because a lot of times the books seem to say that even though the wife may be right, she needs to adapt for her husband's sake. This time however, the book recognizes that it isn't just the wife's responsibility for change, the guy needs to shape up as well.
Even though I might not need this book right now, it is one I will keep on my shelf for future reference. I'd like to say I'll never need it but it's better to be safe than sorry. I think there should be a guy version of this book as well.
