You've forgiven a thousand times. You've bent over backwards to make your partner feel loved and accepted. But the only reward for your loyalty has been anger, indifference, infidelity, or abuse. Your spouse may even be ready to walk out the door.
Do you feel like all is lost? Are you ready to give up? There IS still hope.
Dr. James Dobson's “tough love” principles have proven to be uniquely valuable and effective. Unlike most approaches to marriage crisis, the strategy in this groundbreaking classic does not require the willing cooperation of both spouses. Love Must Be Tough offers the guidance that gives you the best chance of rekindling romance, renewing your relationship, and drawing your partner back into your arms.

Dobson tackles a very tough but all important topic. I found it to be enlightening, accurate & helpful. I appreciate that he does not write theories but from experience.
Single Woman's Take
Every single person needs to read this book, whether currently in a relationship or just hoping for one. What an eye-opener as to how poorly I've been navigating my relationships and why they haven't worked out. I've had a paradigm shift in thinking, and I've reclaimed my self respect. I know what it's like to nag a relationship to death or to keep my mouth shut in order to save the relationship...only to have it die anyway. This book is right on the money - Thanks, Dr. Dobson.
This book guided me through the darkest part of my marriage and we are still happily married. It has been 9 years since then and I'm still amazed at how well Dr Dobson relates to people in a broken marriage and how his method WORKS! I highly recommend this book.
