Desperate Marriages:
Moving Toward Hope and Healing in Your Relationship
by
Gary Chapman
Review by
Anthony J. Centore Ph.D.

* * *
After Gary Chapman wrote the International Best Seller The Five Love Languages, myriad of spinoffs were published: The Five Love Languages of Children, The Five Love Languages of Teenagers, The Five Love Languages for Singles, The Heart of the Five Love Languages, The Five Languages of Apology, and The Love Languages of God; not to mention what appears to be several updated revisions of the aforementioned.

Rest assured, this book barely mentions the five love languages–keeping it to a minimum of just two pages in the first chapter, two pages in the back. Done. Finished. Life moves on. Finally.

In Desperate Marriages, Chapman promotes a philosophy he refers to as “Reality Living,” of which there are six rules: (1) I am responsible for my attitude, (2) My attitude affects my actions, (3) I cannot change others, but I can influence others, (4) My emotions do NOT control my actions, (5) Admitting my imperfections does not mean I am a failure, (6) Love is the most powerful weapon for good in the world.

Basic Impressions:

This book is well put together. It is quality material. The reader with real marital problems and needing real information will get real information. For instance, the book speaks about divorce in chapter one–a smart move, for this is certainly on the mind of someone who is in a desperate marriage. Chapman states, “while divorce removes some pressures, it creates a host of others.” Moreover, the book contains some good psychology (which any counselor reader will recognize as being of the CBT persuasion), and Chapman aptly references William Glasser (i.e., creator of Choice Theory/Reality Therapy). Chapman borrows Glasser’s concepts when he states every person has a need for love, freedom, significance, and peace with God (wait, what happened to power, fun, and survival?).

After a few introductory chapters, the book employs a by-topic format, each chapter coaching the reader on how to apply the six “reality living” rules to marriage with a difficult spouse. The chapters are labeled:

* The Irresponsible Spouse
* The Workaholic Spouse
* The Controlling Spouse
* The Uncommunicative Spouse
* The Verbally Abusive Spouse
* The Physically Abusive Spouse
* The Sexually Abused/Abusive Spouse
* The Unfaithful Spouse
* The Alcoholic/Drug-abusing Spouse
* The Depressed Spouse

My feeling is mixed about the by-topic format type. On one hand, there’s something for everyone; but on the other hand, at some point everyone gets left out in the cold. What I mean is, I would find it hard to recommend this book to a client without the caveat, “It’s a useful book, but a lot of these chapters won’t apply to you.”

Bottom Line

Bottom line, if you’ve been looking information on the topic of troubled marriages, give Chapman’s new book a read. It’s a good reference, and the idea of “reality living” provides a significant philosophical foundation. And stay tuned, with any luck Desperate Marriages of Children should be out by fall.

Not as helpful as expected…, August 14, 2013
This review is from: Desperate Marriages: Moving Toward Hope and Healing in Your Relationship (Paperback)
I thought the book although it chose important topics that often lead to marriages being “desperate” it did not spend adequate time discussing each topic. I felt it was handled more as an overview instead of the depth many of the topics needed.

Also on page 163 Dr. Chapman is advising a woman concerning the fact she has learned her husband sexually abused both their underage daughters. I was appalled & concerned when Dr. Chapman DID NOT instruct the woman to report her husband to the police immediately. He could have further abused her daughters or other children. Most states require that a counselor must alert the police when child abuse has been discovered. I contacted Dr. Chapman’s ministry hoping they will correct this mistake.

Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
This review is from: Desperate Marriages: Moving Toward Hope and Healing in Your Relationship (Paperback)
This book is very good in identifying different scenarios that could possibly exist within the desperate marriage. It was an excellent book for me because it didn’t give me a blanket,generalized solution but a understanding of a variety of situations that may or may not apply to me and a great tool for handling them all. It was particularly helpful to me as I was able to see more than one issue in my marriage and practical examples of how to deal with them. The writer was able to tie into each chapter how the affected spouse should approach the situation from the angle of their personal responsibility in terms of their attitude and how to control what was within their control. Great book.

Changed my life!, August 24, 2006
This was the first book that truly spoke to my situation. I had a hard time putting the book down becuase I related to so many of the people inside. Finally, someone has written a book for both women and men about obsessive, addictive relationships. I feel like I have new insight into problem and can start making positive changes in my life. Excellent book for anyone caught up in another person.

Great read, highly informative but just a bit of info missing., November 18, 2013
Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
Besides the well written and informative cases presented in the book it contains a crucial piece of information, barely discussed in the introduction it may easily go unnoticed though. This kind of behavior can be associated to personality disorders, particularly borderline personality disorder. It may require professional help, either psychological or psychiatric, before it goes out of control as exemplified in some of the cases in the book or in some films like Obsessed (2009) and Fatal Attraction (1987). One thing that is missing in this book is the advice to the other part of the story, the target who in most cases it is not possible for them to just leave the relation that is precisely the core of obsessive love. For this, the books by Randi Kregger et al are of excellent. With slightly different perspectives but both very helpful, they are “Stop Walking on Eggshells: Taking Your Life Back When Someone You Care About Has Borderline Personality Disorder” by Paul Mason MS and Randi Kreger; and “Splitting: Protecting Yourself While Divorcing Someone with Borderline or Narcissistic Personality Disorder” by Bill Eddy LCSW JD and Randi Kreger. Once the situation is properly understood and adequately treated, either with a partner or the family, the love relation can be saved. If not, at least both parts can recover their life back.

Great book to understand the biases of our human mind, March 12, 2010
By 
G0NZ0 (Minnesnowta) – See all my reviews

Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
I loved reading this book. It presents a number of examples that are highly useful in understanding what the bias of a human mind can be.
I think its a great book not only for someone that thinks of having a controlling obsession. In fact, its a great book for everyone, very helpful to become aware of what certain behaviors can hide, and learn how to read the signals of an unhealthy relationship before you spend too much time on it.

Finally, a high end magazine I don’t have to preview (and rip out advertisements) before my teenage daughter reads it. Yes, she’s trendy, likes boys and wants to keep her reputation and personal value intact. Teen Virtue provides an outlet for all of these things.

Great book. Filled with spiritual and divine guidance, while embarking on that love journey and even when just waiting for that special someone. It’s uplifting and gives hope in every page, that love indeed has a "beautiful fragrance" even when it feels or seems to be out of reach.
