Dr. Emerson Eggerichs

Host: Dr. James Dobson

April 04, 2022

On today's edition of Family Talk, Dr. Emerson Eggerichs, author of Love & Respect, warns against what he's dubbed "the Crazy Cycle." In the midst of conflict, without love, the wife reacts without respect. And without respect, the husband, in turn, reacts without love. It's a never-ending vortex! Dr. James Dobson is convinced that love and respect are the biblical prescriptions that can preserve marriage and prevent divorce.
