Overview

Today most married couples live in a perpetual frenzy of criss-crossing schedules, meals on the run, continual drop-offs and pick-ups, feedings, meetings, and events. Something has to give, and often it is sex. But according to marriage experts David and Claudia Arp, it does not have to be this way. They offer help for energy-zapped, sleep-challenged, and sex-deprived couples longing to put interest back in intimacy, readiness back in romance, and sizzle back in marital sex. Using an easy, fun, but realistic and biblically based approach, the Arps share five secrets to help time-deprived lovers recapture a five-star love life, including tips for boosting energy and finding time away from the kids. Intimate, frank, and down-to-earth practical, this book is a must for today's harried marrieds.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Great sex, write the Arps (10 Great Dates Before You Say "I Do"), is "much more than sexual intercourse"--it's "developing and nurturing a love life" that fulfills you "physically, emotionally, and spiritually." In the face of "time zappers" like kids, careers, or disorganization, the authors suggest communicating honestly and carefully and making one's spouse the priority. Tactics and practical tips (hint: foot rubs) balance other sections filled with the Arps' own considerable wisdom. Though a bit restrictive in that it targets heterosexual couples with children, this enjoyable guidebook has plenty of how-to. Marriage coach Fertel skillfully inverts the usual solve-the-problem approach and instead asserts that deep, euphoric love will (like magic) make problems go away. Instead of finding the right person, Fertel writes that we should build a lasting love with the person we found. Marriage is being there for your spouse in thousands of small ways; some surprisingly sound methods, e.g., give your spouse a "positive verbal interaction" for a minute or more five times daily, help couples fall back in love. Readers will practically hear Coach Fertel shouting clear, consistent instructions. Both books are excellent choices for public libraries. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
