His Needs, Her Needs

Debate about Divorce Bill has been rampant these past few weeks. I am not about to give a talk about this, rather, I'd like to share about the book, His Needs, Her Needs by William Harley. It was first published in 2001. It discusses each partners specific needs. Harley, in His Needs/Her Needs: Building An Affair-proof Marriage outlines the top five needs of husband and wife.


His needs include: sexual fulfillment, recreational companionship, attractive spouse, domestic support, and admiration.

Her needs are: affection, conversation, honesty and openness, financial support, and family commitment.

In the book, Harley said, if any of a spouse's five basic needs are unmet, then that spouse becomes vulnerable to the temptation of an affair.

I cannot completely agree with the book for people are different in many ways. Yes, generally, men are sexual in nature, and women are emotional. But what about when it's the other way around?

I know of a friend who's got her 5 needs met by her husband, and yet she's planning on leaving him (in favor with her husband's bestfriend) for she believes the other guy is her soulmate.

Reading His Needs, Her Needs does not guarantee any reader of a 100% proof on making their marriage work, still, I must admit, this is worth reading! The book give insights, clues and suggestions on how to build a stronger marriage.
