Overview

Many relationship specialists believe marriages fail because of struggles with communication, money, in–laws, kids, or sex. Dr. David Clarke sees a simpler but deeper problem that many readers will instantly relate to: boredom. Boredom kills intimacy and squeezes the passion out of relationships.

Dr. Clark applies the common definition of insanity—doing the same things and expecting different results—to marriages. As women continue to live out Cinderella–like roles, and as men repeat caveman–like behaviors, they drain the spontaneity and joy out of their relationships.

Filled with humor and rich with insight, this creative approach to a more fulfilling marriage empowers readers to...

  • see how they built a boring marriage and how they can correct their Cinderella and caveman mistakes
  • resolve conflicts in a way that creates closeness
  • build intimacy through creating a romantic mood, meeting core needs, and achieving a one–flesh connection.
