“Conflicts in marriage must be solved. Learning how to communicate to solve problems is essential for future success.” (Page 18)

“Pornography needs to be mentioned again because of the attitude it communicates toward sex. It portrays a very unreal picture of sex. In fact, it is a lie, fraudulent. It teaches that self-pleasure is most important.” (Page 16)

“Have them keep progress reports. List what they have read, their changes in thinking, attitudes, and actions, as well as changes in comfort with reading and discussions. Do they see the goal of pleasing God in all they are doing? Give specific help where needed as they replace sinful habits with biblical ones.” (Page 20)

“In contrast to the sex-is-bad concept are those who make good sex the key to a good marriage.” (Page 15)

“Then begin to deal with the sinful causes by confessing to God and changing the lifestyle of thought and actions. Confession is not enough. Repentance is more than confession. Repentance is a change of mind that leads to a change of life. By definition, repentance is change.” (Page 18)
