Suzette and I used to fight all the time.
Well, one night at about 12:30, as I was punishing Suzette by shunning and ignoring her for being such a jerk to me, she comes into the living room and says, “Hey Dave, we’ve got to do something about our marriage. We’re stuck in a nasty cycle of fighting and arguing all the time. Our marriage is broken and we’ve got to get it fixed. Let’s read that book that we have upstairs, Love and Respect. And if that doesn’t work, then let’s go to marriage counseling”. I agreed and suggested we start reading it tomorrow, to which she responded, “I really feel like we need to start it tonight”. So, I went and grabbed the book off the shelf and we read the first two chapters right then and there. By the way, men, you’ll want to read this book in bed. Just trust me.
We kept stopping and saying to each other with amazement, “No way, it’s like this author was spying on us and then wrote this book”. We’ve since heard the same exact same thing from several other couples.
I guess this is the reason it has sold over 1,600,000 copies, has won every award a book can win, New York Times Best Seller, Book of the Year and has spoken to hundreds of thousands of people and speaks to sports teams about it and billionaires and their companies etc. It addresses the root of all marriage problems.
So you may be saying to yourself, “What in the heck is a retail company doing giving marriage advice and why would they be promoting it for free and not even receive a penny for it and why do they even care?” Well, that’s a good question. Why do you think?
This video is the first of 4 interviews of us with the author, Dr. Emerson Eggerichs. If you don’t get the book, at least watch each of these 4 short videos we’ll be releasing each week. They’re really cool.
