What's It Like to Be Married

Published by David C Cook
Linda Dillow asks readers to think deeply about "What is it like to be married to me?"

Dillow understands that most women want to be faithful wives-but don't know how to get there. In her biblical and entertaining style, she shares the best and worst things she ever did in her forty-seven-year marriage. She also shares responses from her survey of five hundred wives about choices they've made in their relationships.

A reflective Bible Study with life changing projects is included. This is not a book about marriage; it is a book about how to live out marriage, day by day and year by year. Readers will come away with hope that they can be the wives they want to be, in a marriage filled with passion, intimacy, and joy.

by Linda Dillow is a phenomenalbook; in fact, it may well be the
best 
book on marriage I have ever read.It is bursting with wisdom, practical advice, and heart-wrenching storiesthat will melt the hardest heart. Even better, it is based on biblicaltruth and the call to grow in love. If you want to honor God in yourmarriage, if you want deeper intimacy with your spouse, if you want tobecome more like Christ, please read this book. It is a rare and signatureachievement that combines a penetrating look at marriage with practicalspiritual formation. If all this sounds overstated, let me assure you thatit is actually the opposite: Words fail me to describe just how marvelousthis book really is. It is
that 
good!”

As someone who travels, speaks, and writes with Linda Dillow, I’ve witnessedthe gut-wrenching secret choices she’s made in her own marriage as she’s diedto her own selshness and lived to please God. Tis book and the stories within are so honest they will make your teeth hurt. Only read it if you’re willing to be changed from the inside out.

“Is it okay to say there were times I wanted to throw this book across theroom? Sometimes the truth hurts—but how vital that we hear it. LindaDillow delicately weaves her words among the tough questions and the truthsof Scripture, speaking with gentle thunder to today’s wives. Being willing tolisten to a mentor like Linda and then putting these truths into practice willchange your perspective, your marriage, and your life.”

Yep. Now people get married because they want to, not because they had to. People now live romantically together because they want to, not because they have to. Who contributes what to the relationship is now negotiated. That is a comparative advantage for the modern economic unit for marriage, and spousal-equivalent partnership.
