1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By E. Bukowsky on July 28 2003
Format: Hardcover
Rebbetzin Esther Jungreis is well known for her Torah outreach, her lectures, and her popular newspaper column. She is also the author of "The Committed Life," in which she wrote about the spiritual rewards of living according to the laws of the Torah. In her latest book, "The Committed Marriage," Rebbetizin Jungreis convincingly shows that a man and woman whose marriage is faltering may be able to revitalize their relationship by learning from the wisdom of the Torah.
Jungreis wisely avoids lecturing the reader. She presents many pertinent and interesting anecdotes, which demonstrate the importance of treating your partner with respect, communicating with him or her effectively, and persevering when the going gets tough. The reason that Jungreis's words do not come across as didactic and condescending is that she infuses her advice with love, compassion, and deep psychological understanding. Jungreis's beautiful writing style flows smoothly and effortlessly. Her warmth and concern shine through and embrace the reader. The book is enhanced by Rebbetzin Jungreis's frequent and personal allusions to the words and actions of her late father and husband, since these two spiritual giants exemplified the purest Torah values.
Cynics may dismiss the ideas brought forth in "The Committed Marriage" as simple common sense. However, in our self-centered society, too many people hide behind their busy schedules; they neglect the most important relationships in their lives, until they realize that it is too late to turn back. It is unfortunate, but true, that common sense is increasingly uncommon.
I recommend "The Committed Marriage" for those who want to have a more meaningful, harmonious, and joyous marriage.

Anyone interested in a loving, functioning marriage should read this book. It is useful for those looking for a mate or those who already have a spouse. Actually, anyone could benefit from reading the Committed Marriage...
Rebbetzin Jungreis emphasizes building charachter. This will not only make your marriage last, but enable you to find deeper meaning in life as an individual as well. The Rebbetzin shares her first-hand experience in working with people. The content of the book is outstanding and she conveys it in a manner that is a pleasure to read - the Rebbetzin is a magnificent storyteller.

By G. J Wiener on July 25 2003
Format: Hardcover
The Committed Marriage is another fine book by the Rebbetzin Esther Jungreis on finding and builing a sucessful marriage in today's world. This book looks at life as seeing the glass as half full as opposed to half empty.
Many of the stories are quite inspiring particularly the one of Jackie who loved her husband even though they lost nearly all their money in the recent stock market crash. Other counseling sessions depicting marriages in trouble certainly give a fresh perspective to the many difficulties a couple truly has. However, Jungreis gives much sound advice and wonderful wisdom straight from the Torah.
It would be nice to have more information on what became of some of these troubled couples. At times, Jungreis does spend a little bit too much time on the bickering. It would be nice to have more information on how the couples did indeed resolve their differences. Nonetheless, there are many positive messages throughout this book that it certainly can be a worthy addition to those interested in spiritual and self help material.
Not as strong as The Committed Life but that book ranks as an all timer. A very worthy companion to the aforementioned book it certainly is.
