Format: Paperback
I've just finished a good book that I would like to share with everyone who is married or thinking of becoming married and especially those that would like to stay married. The title is "Love to Stay," written by Adam Hamilton (Abingdon Press, 2013). "Pastor Adam," as he is known by his church members, is the minister at The Church of the Resurrection, in Leawood, Kansas, the largest Methodist church in the United States (19,000) members. He conducted a survey recently, primarily of his congregation, asking questions about love, marriage, and yes, sex. He wanted to find out where people were on their satisfaction with marriage and try to determine some of the factors that led to a happier state of matrimony. Some things were not so surprising; men don't think that they get enough sexual intimacy. Other things were quite surprising; eight percent of women reported viewing pornography at least occasionally. Not a big statistic but remember that these are church members who describe themselves as Christians.

Hamilton addresses the various stresses in marriage from a very nonjudgmental point of view, considering his position in the church. He simply, but firmly, points out that addictions, including addiction to pornography, rob a marriage of intimacy. Addictions, he points out, are one of the top three things that lead to divorce, with the other two being abuse (physical and/or verbal) and infidelity. He tackles each of these subjects from a theological point of view without being "preachy" in any way. His take on divorce was eloquently put: he feels that God doesn't like divorce but there are some things that God likes even less [abuse].

There are several sections in the book that cover how spouses can more accurate assess and meet the needs of each other.
