My Beloved and My Friend – How To Be Married To Your Best Friend Without Changing Spouses
By Hal and Melanie Young – authors of Raising Real Men
Hal and Melanie have a way of writing that makes you feel as though you are sitting down and having a conversation with them.
What they write is solid.
What they write is Biblical
What they write actually works and is doable.
They don’t pull punches or just try to make you feel good. They handle delicate issues with Biblical responses. Since we know that God’s word never returns void, we know that this book will change lives
“So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.” Isaiah 55:11
Throughout the book there are little nuggets of truth that will grab you and stick in your mind so that you find yourself pondering them long after you finish reading. You will find yourself wanting to share just one more favorite sentence with your spouse or a friend.In fact I considered just writing out a dozen or more of my favorite ones.
I do have to share this one: “Close your mouth and simply listen.” p.105 It’s one I really need fairly often.
Topics that they covered that I felt have not been covered well before in anything I’ve read, are:
The differences between fidelity and loyalty -that’s all I’m going to tell you – you’ll have to read the chapter for yourself.
Not how to fight fair, but how to fight so you both win. Not there is a novel idea.
How to have the right number of children.
And they have to cover submission.
This book is well thought out and flows from chapter to chapter seamlessly. It is one that we hope to have our young adults read with their spouses, possibly before marriage. I could see using this for discussion with an engaged couple.
It’s suitable for anyone of any age, and will profit everyone who takes the time to read it.

I was given a copy of “my beloved and my best friend” to read and then to give you my honest evaluation of it.
