9780785261681: Staying Close: Stopping the Natural Drift Toward Isolation in Marriage

Countless married couples end up living alone – in the same house. Over twenty-eight years of conducting "Weekend to Remember" conferences have convinced Dennis and Barbara Rainey that isolation is the number-one problem in marriages today. But they believe it's possible to overcome "marital drift" and experience the miracle of oneness. This book provides a positive, workable strategy for keeping your marriage vital and intimate. Included are proven principles and hands-on exercises to help you:

  • understand the personal and cultural forces that isolate you from your spouse
  • manage your schedules, workloads, roles, and responsibilities without losing sight of each other
  • allos for (and enjoy) individual differences while maintaining unity
  • build an atmosphere of cooperation by meeting each other more than halfwey
  • "affair-proof" your relationship (or heal it after the fact)
  • grow closer duing hard times instead of letting your troubles pull you apart
  • create a "safe" atmosphere for transparent communication
  • discover the secrets of a mutually rewarding sex life
  • leave a legacy of love and unity to your family and friends
