You, as a woman, are never, ever going to meet a single guy who is your equal or greater at your spiritual walk.
Chandler is setting you up to fail before you even begin. Are you going to believe Chandler, who is a man and who has been married for years, or a woman such as me who is actually living this stuff out?
All Chandler can do is offer up a few Bible passages via his faulty, imperfect interpretation, when what I am telling you is based on real lived experience. If you rely on Chandler-like advice, you will find yourself single later in life, mark my words.

Sarah also, quite ridiculously, told me I have turned marriage into an idol — which is quite incorrect.
Christian church not me! Many other books tell the individual to focus on a long list of desires in a spouse.
Mingling of Souls
Chandler reduces it to a few non-negotiables for the Christian relationship. In the sex chapter, Chandler provides an overview of what God intends for a couple when it comes to intimacy. Rather, the gospel informs the way we communicate and resolve conflict.
