Book Summary of The Emotionally Destructive Marriage by Leslie Vernick


You thought it would be different. You had such high hopes, but things have deteriorated. There have been countless moments when those hopes have returned, but change never seems to last. For a wife in a destructive relationship, marriage can feel like the worst of prisons. At every step, her sense of self-identity is undermined and even removed.

There are hundreds of books out there describing how to build a happy marriage, but very few work through what to do if and when marriage feels like it’s turning into a nightmare. In these situations, wives are in desperate need of help.

Where should they turn, and what should they do? The answers are never easy, but they do exist. God has provided wisdom in His Word, and through His people. With support from others, wives in destructive marriages can take decisive steps towards positive change.

Of course, husbands are sometimes caught too in destructive marriages. Though this book is written primarily for women, there is wisdom here for men as well.

“God does not want you to hang on by a thread, my friend. He gives you a lifeline. Grab hold of it and live.” (p. 4)
