Format: Paperback
I found this book to be quite interesting, it gave me a lot to think about. I read it on a weekend getaway with my husband. We talked about the three areas in our life that need regular attention - emotional, physical, and spiritual closeness and the ways we can make our relationship a higher priority in our lives. I would recommend anyone who has the marriage "blahs" to read this and make some changes.

I have always felt that I had a "good" marriage. Sure we had up and down times, but overall I felt things were going pretty well. However, the last year has been difficult for us and I was feeling less respect and love for my wife, and that scared me. I wanted to (and she reluctantly agreed to) go to counseling. That revealed many areas in our relationship that were "broken" and I was pretty shocked to hear how my wife felt about things. She basically didn't love me anymore and didn't want to prolong the inevitable. I was panicked. I started to read as many marriage books as I could get my hands on. I saw an individual counselor to help with some issues and dealing with the rejection I felt. I changed behaviors. I tried many different things.

While I cannot say this is the best Marriage book I have read (to me, the best one is "The Marriage Turnaround"), it is one that I felt was very helpful for me to understand how things in our marriage went along the path that they did. That understanding was really helpful for me to understand why I did some of the things I did, and why my wife was doing some of the things she was doing. I feel that having this understanding could help many couples and I have given this book to a couple of friends who seem to have similar things happening in their marriages.

I would recommend this book for anyone who is in a relationship that used to be good, but that seems to just slowly get worse over the years. It will help you to realize why that is happening and give you some advice about how to change things. It has definitely helped me to understand why we were both doing some of the things that we were doing and has also helped me to change some of the behaviors that were not helping my marriage.

I listen to Dr Randy Carlson every day on the radio - this book is great. I've passed it on to my daughter. Only wish I could have had this resource 20 yrs ago. I might still be married!

Wow, this is one of those must read books for couples. Although both sides often say they are starved for affection, understanding what that actually means and how it can be addressed is clearly explained in page after page of examples that every couple can relate too. Both husband and wife must read this, and have honest discussion. That is true for any book, but this one hits a topic that can make a huge difference in a marriage.

I thought this book was right on and helped to get to the core of the misery that can be in marriages that were designed to provide companionship but instead bring loneliness. This was a great book that brought comfort to my current situation.
