Confessions of a Happily Married Man: Finding God in the Messiness of Marriage by Joshua L. Rogers Book Review



In Confessions of a Happily Married Man, Joshua L. Rogers shared real stories and confessions that he has encountered in his marriage. He is an attorney and a writer. He starts the book by sharing a personal story of a baby monitor and how this story changed their marriage and helped them both to eventually become a stronger couple. Throughout the book, he shared about how they both met and went into details about both of their family’s background’s with marriage and divorce. He also revealed his struggles with woman and dating. He was very transparent about how they were opened right at the beginning of their relationship about their pasts. He also explored some of the first arguments they had in their marriage and how at first, he was so determined to win the case. Eventually on their second year of marriage a friend pointed out during a Bible study by Henry Cloud about how he didn’t like how he talked to his wife. This study encouraged them to do interview questions and Joshua decided to try it with his wife and got feedback from her and a few other friends. He admits in the book that this was difficult to hear the positive and negative but this helped him to work on his own character weaknesses. In the back of the book, he also included them in here where readers could also enlist one of their own personal friends and spouse in order to improve their own life. He also suggested going over the feedback with your pastor to help you interpret all the feedback. The book also into detail about prayer, sex, dealing with the in-laws, losing loved ones, and health changes. 



I would recommend this excellent book on marriage to every engaged and married couple. This book contained many stories about their marriage and how they dealt with arguments and conflicts. I liked how real Joshua was in revealing what he struggled with. I was surprised about how open they were about their marriage and he wasn’t afraid to be honest and real. This is probably one of the better marriage books I have read. I appreciated how honest he was with talking about their sex life and how he struggled at a time with sexual dysfunction. I can tell in the book he truly wanted to help readers to become vulnerable with their spouse and for them both to become one like Christ intended. I also liked how the last chapter his wife wrote her experiences on their marriage. I connected with the two appendix’s chapters that he included at the back of the book to help guide readers into fixing and improve their own marriage for the better. If you’re looking for a great marriage book, then read this one!
