Marriage Help For Moms: Love & Respect
What is Love and Respect? We asked 7,000 people this question: when you are in a conflict with your spouse or significant other, do you feel unloved or disrespected? 83% of the men said “disrespected.” 72% of the women said, “unloved.” Though we all need love and respect equally, the felt need differs during conflict, and this difference is as different as pink is from blue! Love & Respect is here to help you work out differences in your marriage. Visit Love & Respect to learn MORE from relationship expert Dr. Emerson Eggerichs, life-changing conferences & materials to rescue your marriage.
