At the same time, she acknowledges that sex-related variables often play into marriage dynamics—for better or for worse.
She shares how she and Christopher learned to embrace their unique designs rather than suffering shame for failing to conform to pink or blue expectations. Rather than downloading into simplistic gender roles, Greco encourages couples to navigate the mysterious waters as different genders and unique people.
She urges readers to consider how gender expectations may be harming their marriages. For spouses navigating the thorny ground of addictions, Greco explains the source of disordered attachments and addictions that so often devastate marriages.

This book does none of these things. Greco acknowledges the difficulties of marriage and the disappointments that unavoidably happen in any relationship. At the same time, she is hopeful and helpful in pointing us toward truly beautiful marriage, based in what God wants for all of us.
Throughout the book, Greco is unflinching in her acknowledgment of the disappointment and frustration that come when our spouses do not meet our expectations—and when we ourselves fail to live up to ideals.
She challenges us to see beyond gender stereotypes and consider how we can best navigate the marriage relationship with the ingredients we have—who we and our spouses are as individual, unique people.
