What to do when you feel like giving up 

When you said, “I do”, you entered marriage with high hopes, dreaming it would be supremely happy. You never intended for it to be miserable.

Millions of couples are struggling in desperate marriages. But the story doesn’t have to end there. Dr. Gary Chapman writes, “I believe that in every troubled marriage, one or both partners can take positive steps that have the potential for changing the emotional climate in their marriage.”

Loving Your Spouse When You Feel Like Walking Away, the revised and updated edition of the award-winning Desparate Marriages, teaches you how to:

  • Recognize and reject the myths that hold you captive
  • Better understand your spouse’s behavior
  • Take responsibility for your own thoughts, feelings, and actions
  • Make choices that can have a lasting, positive impact on you and your spouse

An experienced marriage and family counselor, Gary Chapman speaks to those whose spouse is any of the following:

  • Irresponsible
  • A workaholic
  • Controlling
  • Uncommunicative
  • Verbally abusive
  • Physically abusive
  • Sexually abusive
  • Unfaithful
  • Addicted to alcohol or drugs
  • Depressed

Marriage has the same potential to be miserable as it does to be blissful. Listen to Loving Your Spouse When You Feel Like Walking Away to learn how you can turn things around.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Great book

I was feeling down about my marriage and was about to walk out. I prayed to God to give me wisdom about my marriage and it lead to this book. There is so much wisdom shared in this book and I will read multiple times as a point of reference.

encouragement through another chance

I am trying to give my husband, who has declared himself an alcoholic and who has a history of emotional abuse, another chance. This book has been so encouraging and comforting to me. It is full of relevant, applicable stories and situations. It contains helpful suggestions and some concrete advice. I am not religious at all, but the references to God (and the few references to religious doctrines) in this book do not offend me or bother me at all. I almost didn't buy this book Because I had read it was too religious. But I found that I was able to interpret those parts in a way that suit me personally, and still got so much out of the book.

Gary Chapman is a master counselor.

Apart from the Bible, no other single resource has given me more tangible, practical, balanced, hopeful insight into understanding & healing my marriage.

Great Read

Practical, straight forward advice on how best to love someone when they aren’t making it easy. This book helped give me some hope for change on what I can do instead of sitting in my head. Get this book if you are struggling.

A must read

Listening to this book was indeed difficult and took months to finally make myself read it! First time I was not having this book thinking I know what I want and I'm just done!! Second time was even harder harder because it hit close to home, a little more than I wanted. Was emotional through the first few chapters. Might want to have your journal and Bible handy and serious prayer time. After that, I stepped away from this book and let go and let God! I have been in a lot of trials and tribulations, this book has given me information I should of had when I knew the issues started. I will again read and take more notes and just apply where needed as I heal and make this work for my marriage. Happy reading!!

Superficial, but Sparks Good Conversation

Primarily opinion and experience based, with little research to back it up. Typical of Gary Chapman, but when discussing "desperate marriages" I would have liked better therapeutic approaches and practical solutions to offer clients. Not a very meaty book, but good for sparking conversations.
