Dispelling the common myths of marriage

Rhonda Stoppe reveals the truth about marriage and helps wives live with no regrets

7/20/2016 || Seattle: Do you know a couple who has been married for a long time and are still deeply in love? You might find yourself wondering what their secret is or how that woman was lucky enough to find such a perfectly wonderful man. However, in If My Husband Would Change, I’d Be Happy & Other Myths Wives Believe (Harvest House, August 1, 2015, ISBN 978-0-7369-6286-5), Rhonda Stoppe shows readers the secret to a happy marriage isn’t related to how “ideal” a spouse is, but rather having a relationship grounded in a love deeper than their own.

“Dating, courtship and planning the wedding are all glorious experiences for most women,” Stoppe writes. “But after the honeymoon, when the wedding gifts are in their proper place and life begins to happen, often the glorious experiences fade into the endless routines of to-do lists, juggling finances and learning to serve one another.”

It’s not long before doubts creep in, and a wife might think, “I’m falling out of love with him,” “Our marriage would be better if bad things would stop happening,” “All he wants is sex,” or “More money equals less stress.” Stoppe dispels these and other common myths about marriage in her easy-to-read exploration of what it takes to experience a truly happy marriage. In fact, the truth is quite simple: The secret to happiness in marriage lies not in how well her husband measures up to her expectations, but in how well she loves God. 

Stoppe wants wives to have the marriage they had dreamed, and a happy, healthy, God-honoring marriage is possible. “A marriage flourishes,” Stoppe says, “when both husband and wife learn to love Christ more than any other person in life — including their spouse.” Written to inspire and uplift, If My Husband Would Change, I’d Be Happy is filled with love stories to encourage readers toward building a marriage that others will want to emulate.

Compiled from Stoppe’s more than 20 years of experience as a marriage mentor, pastor’s wife, and speaker, If My Husband Would Change, I’d Be Happy helps women discover:

—How to build a no-regrets marriage
—The secret to keeping his attention
—What romance really means to your husband
—8 steps to making peace
—How to stay in love
—10 keys to a happy marriage

If My Husband Would Change, I’d Be Happy is a practical and invaluable resource that helps wives recognize the myths about marriage that are holding them back and equip them to take a proactive approach in their relationships with their husbands. Each chapter concludes with Bible verses for study, discussion questions and a section “From a Husband’s Perspective” written by Stoppe’s husband, Steve, for additional application.

  • BOOK REVIEW FOR ‘IF MY HUSBAND WOULD CHANGE I’D BE HAPPY’ BY RHONDA STOPPE

    Rhonda Stoppe takes great care in focusing on the Biblical aspects of marriage–and, even more to the point, the makes clear the critical importance how one’s personal relationship with Christ needs to come above all else. Each chapter takes on a specific topic, which means that some chapters will hit home more than others and make the personal in different ways based upon each individual reader. Stoppe uses insight from her own marriage (both problems and solutions), and also brings examples of healthy and weak marriages from others with whom she has friendships. Having the opportunity to view the struggles followed by the progress made within other marriages is encouraging & realistic.

  • ‘IF MY HUSBAND WOULD CHANGE, I’D BE HAPPY’ BY RHONDA STOPPE

    When I first saw this book, I was intrigued by the title. It caught my attention because I know I’ve made that statement before, either to my husband or to myself. So, I thought “why not?” Let me tell you how happy I am that I picked up this book. Rhonda Stoppe is an excellent author. Her conversational tone throughout the book made me feel at ease, even during the topics that pricked at my consciousness. I felt like I was sitting down with my girlfriends for a nice chat every time I picked up this book.

  • ‘IF MY HUSBAND WOULD CHANGE, I’D BE HAPPY: AND OTHER MYTHS WIVES BELIEVE’ BY RHONDA STOPPE

    Most of the book is written by the author Rhonda, but towards the end of every chapter, her husband writes some paragraphs from his perspective about the current chapter. I think that having the husband’s perspective along with the wife’s perspective on every chapter is really informative and greatly adds to content of this book.

    Also at the end of every chapter she includes a “thinking it through” questions and “living it out” questions. All the chapters suggest scripture references to read as well. You can also go to her website to hear audio clips from each chapter. They can be found under the free resources tab.

    Filled with refreshing honesty and humor this book was very thought provoking and I feel that it apply applied to myself. Sometimes it is so easy to buy into the myths that are floating around out there and sell yourself short but this book really addresses those myths and helps one think differently about your marriage and focus on the positives and the things that caused you to fall in love with your husband.

  • GREAT ADVICE

    If My Husband Would Change, I’d Be Happy: And Other Myths Wives Believe is the first book by Rhonda Shoppe I have had read and I really enjoyed it. If My Husband Would Change is a great book for any wife whether newlywed or a seasoned wife. I found Rhonda Shoppe’s style. I really enjoyed the her writing. I found myself laughing in many places, she uses humor in many areas, which really kept my interest and made the book different from other books I have read on marriage. This book is well researched and well written. This book really shows Rhonda Shoppe’s heart about marriage and family. I definitely found this book thought provoking and convicting, busting the myths we wives hear about marriage and life. I recommend this book to anyone who is married whether 1 month or 40 years, you will not be disappointed. I cannot wait to read more from Rhonda Shoppe. I give this book 4 STARS.

  • REVIEW: ‘IF MY HUSBAND WOULD CHANGE, I’D BE HAPPY’

    This book is a love and marriage book about myths wives believe. It is written by Rhonda Stoppe who has more than 20 years experience helping women build no-regrets lives. The author’s position is that the wife’s love of God, not her husband, is how she’ll experience fulfillment in her marriage.

    Growing up, I did not have a healthy experience of what marriage was like. On the rare occasions I saw my parents kiss it surprised me. I would laugh and say something like, `mommy and daddy are kissing….eww. Which has put a damper on my own marriage.

    This book is like any other book that teaches about Titus 2:4 as its base. Teaching that love for your husband comes directly through how much you love God.

  • RHONDA STOPPE’S ‘IF MY HUSBAND WOULD CHANGE, I’D BE HAPPY’

    Wow. This is a really good book. I love it when a book points the reader solidly to Jesus. This is that kind of book. Mrs. Stoppe encourages us to deal with the plank in our own eyes, get out of the way, and let God deal with the speck in our husbands’ eyes….

    The real change and the only way to truly love and respect our husbands is to love God and seek Him passionately. All other love comes out of that love.

  • ‘IF MY HUSBAND WOULD CHANGE, I’D BE HAPPY’ {A BOOK REVIEW & BLOG TOUR}

    When you first get married, there is this feeling of such deep awe in your new spouse that you’re pretty sure they just can do no wrong. Mistakes made? Overlooked. Arguments? Over quickly and forgotten about. But eventually that honeymoon period ends. Those little things that we once laughed off start to build up. the arguments may end but we sometimes don’t let the little things go. We truly do start to think that if our husband’s would just change their ways, we’d be a happier wife.

    Do you ever feel this way? If the answer is yes, I have the book for you…

  • BOOK REVIEW—RHONDA STOPPE—IF MY HUSBAND . . .

    And I thought… A very modern approach excellent for all women. Although this reader didn’t care for the title. And actually neither did The Cowboy. I get the concept. But, I think that there are women that wouldn’t buy the book based on the title. Especially if your in a marriage that is struggling. There have been times in my marriage that if I had bought this title I wouldn’t have left it laying around for The Cowboy to see. With that said . . . I encourage you to buy it anyway. The teaching is Biblically sound. And in my opinion if Elizabeth Barnes endorsed it (and she did) then you need to read it! This one is a keeper for me (along with the titles by Elizabeth Barnes). It was a simple read. Filled with humor and light heartedness but also filled with great insight and sound scriptural advice.

  • ‘IF MY HUSBAND WOULD CHANGE . . . & OTHER MYTHS WIVES BELIEVE’

    Rhonda changes the game. This isn’t a book about how to make your marriage perfect, how to belittle your spouse into doing what you want, or how to use your kids against your husband. This book is actually little about your husband and so much about the wife.

    Written by Mama Bear Outpost on August 2, 2016

  • ‘IF MY HUSBAND WOULD CHANGE I’D BE HAPPY’ BY RHONDA STOPPE

    This is an excellent book on marriage! So often, as women, we focus on the things we would change about our spouse or buy into the lie that we would be happier with someone else. Rhonda does a wonderful job of encouraging women to put their focus on Christ and making Him the center of their marriage.

    I liked that Rhonda was easy to relate to and included notes from her husband on each chapter. This is a great book for newlyweds and those of us who have been married for a while. I think it would be great to study as a group too!

    Written by Inklings and Notions on August 2, 2016

  • ‘IF MY HUSBAND WOULD CHANGE I’D BE HAPPY’ BY RHONDA STOPPE

    This book falls into a slightly different area of Christian literature. Perhaps because it is non-fiction, and a sort of ‘self-help’, it is geared more toward the couple who were at one time (or still are, for that matter) involved in their church or religion of whatever variety. I would say this book is definitely Protestant in its outlook. That does NOT mean that people of other faiths could not receive any benefit from reading it, just that it does refer to the entire Bible and the lessons to be found there. I found a lot of common sense solutions as well.

  • RELEVANT, CONVICTING, ENTERTAINING

    In an engaging, conversational and often humorous style, Rhonda Stoppe speaks straight from her heart into the reader’s heart. It’s just like she was sitting across the table, the two of us enjoying our morning coffee. If My Husband… is relevant, convicting – and entertaining. It’s a lifesaver if you’re hurting in your marriage, and an extremely helpful resource if you’re not. Bottom line … this book can be helpful to wives in all stages of marriage. Some women might not buy into the “husband as head of the family” concept, but I found it to be solidly based on Scripture – and the fact that being head of the family does not equate dictatorship. Rhonda doesn’t really hold anything back and her godly wisdom shines through. Highly recommended.

  • ‘IF MY HUSBAND WOULD CHANGE, I’D BE HAPPY (& OTHERS MYTHS WIVES BELIEVE)’

    This book is a life changer. The author, Rhonda Stoppe, addresses topics that every married, engaged, and yes, single woman should ponder. It’s an easy to read, heartfelt, and entertaining “instruction book” for how to treat your husband, deal with hard times, think about sex, and basically how to be happy when marriage gets difficult- aka “when the honeymoon is over.” 😉 As I read her words I could feel God changing my heart and it was a beautiful, long overdue transition! (Her husband also writes his viewpoint at the end of each chapter which adds an eye opening perspective.) Perhaps your marriage could use some fine tuning, too? 🙂 I really enjoyed how the author told her personally humbling and “aha” moments. She’s been there as a wife/mother/lover and understands how women think.

  • WONDERFUL BOOK ON MARRIAGE!

    I highly recommend this book to wives (or wives to be) as I think we all have the tendency to think our marriages and our lives should end in a happily ever after that is not rational. Yes, we can have happiness with our husbands but our lives aren’t fairy tales. This was an excellent book on marriage and I really enjoyed and learned a lot from it!

    The chapters were filled with advice and thoughts that were extremely helpful and introspective. While I think my marriage is great, there is always room for improvement on my part. So this was a wonderful refresher course. The questions and thoughts at the end really helped solidify what I’d just read. This book would work great as a personal study or for a small group setting. While the main focus is women who feel frustrated or lonely in their marriage, I think any married or soon-to-be married woman would greatly benefit from reading it. Overall, great book with lots of insightful thoughts on marriage from someone who’s been there.

    This is the best marriage book for wives that I’ve ever read. She pulls no punches and lays it all out on the table. Marriage takes work. A lot of work. There is no simple way to have a happy marriage, it is a daily decision to cultivate it and work at it. Rhonda points the reader directly to God as the creator of marriage and as the only one through whom all relationships will grow. Fabulous book and highly recommended.

  • NOT FOR ME

    The author does an excellent job of reminding women that they need to first love God with all their heart. Then that love can help them to love their husbands even more.
    – The author encourages women to speak good things over their husbands and to honor them.
    – There is a good amount of Scripture throughout the book.
    – I did feel that the author was a bit crass at times, almost like she was trying to appeal to a younger audience but really missed the mark.
    – Overall, I did not enjoy this book. I felt that there was no balance to her words. Yes, I agree that women should not rely on their husbands to make them happy (to use the main example). But I also feel that a wife cannot be her husband’s main source of hope and confidence.

    IT’S SO EASY TO BELIEVE THESE LIES

    You’ve heard this comment or maybe you have even said it, “If my husband would just change (you fill-in your wish), I would be happy and things would be better.” But we know the truth is, it’s easier to believe these lies than accept responsibility for our own happiness.

    In If My Husband Would Change, I’d Be Happy, Ronda Stoppe dismantles many of the myths and lies that wives so easily believe about marriage. She challenges us to change our thinking and make a real change in ourselves and our marriages.

    Rhonda Stoppe examines twelve myths that women bring into the marriage. At the close of each chapter her husband, Steve, has written a section called “From a Husband’s Perspective.” As you read what he says, you will not only glean a man’s perspective, but also insights from the many years of Biblical counseling he has done with husbands and wives. At the end of each chapter you will find two sections called, “Thinking It Through” and “Living It Out.” These will allow you to study and apply the truths you’ve learned.

    Written with much humor and bluntness in a very conversational way, author Rhonda Stoppe dispels your typical myths about marriage starting with the one in the title. The one thing that sets this book apart from the many other self-help marriage books on the market today is that Rhonda focuses on the fact that you will only find your true fulfillment through a relationship with Jesus Christ.

I am not a great wife and mother, but I truly desire to BE a great wife and mother, so I have read a number of marriage books, and this one is actually different than most of them. Although all the “Good Wife Guides” I have read are definitely Christian based, most of them still focus on the practical steps you can take to be an excellent wife. This book truly focuses on the fact that you will only be fulfilled through a relationship with Jesus Christ.

  • PERFECT FOR NEWLYWEDS & OLDYWEDS

    Perfect for newlyweds and “oldyweds” (like me lol), If My Husband Would Change, I’d Be Happy gives hope and practical resources to wives who are at the end of their patience, the end of their love, and perhaps the end of their marriage. It’s engaging and conversational while at the same time packed with solid truth, Scriptural support, and wise advice. I also really enjoyed the “From a Husband’s Perspective” at the end of each chapter, written (as you may have already guessed) by the author’s husband. I know I will be re-reading this book often to keep the truths in it at the forefront of my mind and my marriage.

  • ‘IF MY HUSBAND WOULD CHANGE, I’D BE HAPPY’ BY RHONDA STOPPE

    Rhonda Stoppe offers this book as an instrument to help women become the kind of wives God wants us to be to our men. Filled with Scripture to encourage and reveal God’s desire for us, I found myself having to admit there were definitely areas in my role as a wife I could improve upon. And what was most revealing is that it wasn’t because I wanted to be a perfect wife but because I wanted to honor God in my role as help-mate to my husband. Rhonda’s husband, Pastor Steve Stoppe gives readers a glimpse into the husband’s thoughts at the end of each chapter, which I found helpful and reassuring. There’s also a Thinking It Through and Living It Out section at the end of each chapter, which help the reader apply new found truths to their lives in a tangible way.

  • PRACTICAL TIPS FOR A HAPPIER MARRIAGE

    At the heart of Rhonda’s marriage advice — and what I perhaps appreciate most about this book — can be summed by what she says in chapter one:

    “It all comes down to this: The key to having an all-out love for your husband and experiencing fulfillment in your marriage does not lie in how well your husband measures up to your expectations, but in how well you love God.”

    Powerful. Paradoxical. And true.

  • ‘IF MY HUSBAND’ REVIEW

    This book is an easy read and it will really help you self-reflect. Rhonda asks simple questions throughout the chapters that made me really think as I answered them on my own. I chuckled as I read some portions of the book and recognized myself in horror in other portions! I think this is a great book for wives to read and I highly recommend it.

  • ‘IF MY HUSBAND WOULD CHANGE, I’D BE HAPPY’

    This is a fantastic book to give as a wedding gift to the bride to be. I wish I had this book years ago. ALL of us married girls need to read this and take it to heart. My husbands job is not to make me happy.

  • GOOD READ

    This book had some great funny stories, some realistic “I can’t believe that just happened” stories, and Biblical truths about marriage. Honestly, the majority of this book was nothing I hadn’t read. I’ve been married almost five years and have gone through more marriage books than I can count. This one is good for those who have been married a little while.

  • ‘IF MY HUSBAND WOULD CHANGE I’D BE HAPPY’ BY RHONDA STOPPE

    I love when books encourage us to search our hearts and strive to do better, don’t you? Another thing I enjoyed about this book are the study tools in the back of each chapter. I just love how interactive the book becomes and how it helps the reader dig a little deeper into the topics discussed in each chapter.

  • ‘IF MY HUSBAND WOULD CHANGE, I’D BE HAPPY’

    I also was constantly impressed by Stoppe’s continuance to have wives look at the changes that they can make in their attitudes. She reminds wives not to be self-focused on their own happiness. Instead, she reminds us to focus on loving Christ and looking to the happiness of others above our own happiness. With those guidelines, we’re able to live a more Christlike life, and our marriages will improve, even if our husband never change.

  • ‘IF MY HUSBAND WOULD CHANGE, I’D BE HAPPY (& OTHER MYTHS WIVES BELIEVE)’

    This book serves as a wonderful tool for any married woman, whether she’s just now saying her vows, or celebrating a 10 year anniversary. It would even be wise to read it, along with Scripture, before she accepts a marriage proposal.

  • HUMOR-FILLED MARRIAGE BOOK!

    Rhonda Stoppe definitely has a way with words! She writes with humor and yet is very knowledgable in marriage topics that every woman should be reading. She seems like a very down to earth type of friend that I could relate to! I would definitely recommend this book to married women of all ages and in all walks of life. I rate this book as 5 stars!

  • ‘IF MY HUSBAND WOULD CHANGE, I’D BE HAPPY’

    I had mixed feelings about this book. The author is passionate about her subject and does have some valuable advice. The author gives good, common sense advice to women that mad a lot of sense like always being respectful and kind and trying to bring joy to the home.

  • ‘IF MY HUSBAND WOULD CHANGE, I’D BE HAPPY: AND OTHER MYTHS WIVES BELIEVE’ #BOOKREVIEW

    I have to be honest I wasn’t so sure about this book. The quirky title had me a little scared. However one chapter in I was hooked – and convicted! Rhonda Stoppe writes to us like that older best friend that has been there and doesn’t want you to have to go there too. She shares life experiences of her own and others to help us learn from their mistakes.
