Marriage Guide Sold On ISNA Canada Website MUCH More "Lenient" Than That Other One

According to The Muslim Marriage Guide, available for purchase on the ISNA Canada site, husbands are advised that
Put together, all these sources [from the Koran and hadith] suggest that beating, if it has to be done at all, should be a last resort to punish a wife for some major sin, such as adultery. It is the final manifestation of the husband's authority, not the first; a deterrent aimed at holding the marriage together.
So a "beating" is the way to hold a bad marriage together? Good to know. Here in Kafirland the "last resort" usually consists of heading off to a marriage counselor. But, hey, maybe a "last resort" beating is more effective--and less expensive.

Update: This BeliefNet reviewer gives the book two thumbs-up, calling its author "the John Gray of the Muslim world." Funny, I don't remember that part of Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus where the Martians are advised to thrash the Venetians (but only as a "last resort").
