“Fight for Love,” by Rosie Makinney

Fight for Love, by Rosie Makinney, is a profound book about the effects of pornography addiction in marriage.


As a wife of a porn-addict herself, her experience and research combined, is a “life-changing resource” for wives of porn addicts (Josh McDowell, author).

Makinney focuses on how porn affects men, their wives, and kids – providing families tools to fight back and make recovery possible. She has packed her ten chapters with neuroscience research findings, Scripture, a biblical battle plan, and her personal, informational memoir.

“Fight for Love” debunks cultural norms and lies associated with sex and pornography. Highly researched and supported by sources, Makinney even suggests both men and women’s brains are susceptible to pornography.


“Fight for Love” is highly recommended by author, Josh McDowell. Personally, it was hard to face this topic, but quite insightful. I appreciate the author & her contributor’s honesty about their struggle with pornography.

Lastly, I admire the author’s goal in publishing this book. You’re not alone in this marital struggle. I highly recommend this book as a resource for couples. This book will equip you and your spouse with the tools needed to find healing, recovery and restoration.
