Christian books on marriage are some of my favorite books to read. I am an avid reader and I am very interested in relationships so it makes me very happy to find a good book on the subject. I have learned so much from Christian books on marriage. They have helped me to understand my husband more and strive to be a better wife. Here are my absolute favorites.
1. Marriage on the Rock
This is my absolute favorite. If you are looking for Christian books on marriage, this one is the best. It covers so many topics in marriage. I learned so much from it. I even bought my husband the audio book to listen to and he ended up really getting a lot from it as well.
2. Love and Respect
This book is very eye-opening. It taught me a concept that I had never really realized; that men need respect and women need love. If each partner does not get what they need then they can spin into what the author calls the “Crazy Cycle”. This book can open up a lot of great discussions between a husband and a wife. It can also give you a much greater understanding of how marriage works best.
3. For Women Only
For Women Only was a book that had a lot of shock factors for me. I believed that I understood how my husband thought before I read this book. After I read it, I realized how little I really understood about how men operate. It helped me to be able to go forward realizing how my husband might perceive a situation differently than I do. If your husband is game, there is also a companion book, For Men Only.
4. The Five Love Languages
This book was the first of its kind. It talks about how we each have a certain way that we like to receive love. And generally, the way that we like to receive love is how we also give it. It breaks down the love languages that you and your spouse prefer and gives you some practical examples for meeting their needs. You will look at giving and receiving love in a completely new way.
5. His Brain, Her Brain
His Brain, Her Brain is a book that explains why women and men are so different. It takes a rather scientific approach and goes into a lot of detail about why we think and act differently. It also helps you to understand why you are so different and how to work around that. It made me realize that many of our differences really were just that, differences. It is a very informative book.
6. First Comes Love, then Comes Money
Do you and your husband differ on your perspective with money? You are not alone. This book can help you to find common ground. Get helpful hints and straight advice on how to bridge the gap when it comes to your finances. You will learn a better way to communicate with your partner about money. You will also gain hope in having a solid financial future.
7. Is That All He Thinks about?
If you feel like sex is the only thing on your husband’s mind, again, you are in good company. Many wives feel that way. This book will help you to work through your own feelings about sex. It will help you to understand why it is so important to care about your husband’s thoughts and feelings. Your sex life will thank you for reading this book.
