Item Description...
Overview
Countless married Americans end up living alone-in the same house. Years of conducting FamilyLife conferences and counseling couples have convinced Dennis Rainey that isolation is the number one problem in marriages today. But Rainey is also convinced that it is possible to defeat "marital drift" and experience the miracle of oneness.
Staying Close provides couples with a positive, workable strategy for keeping their marriage vital and intimate. Couples will learn to:

recognize the personal and cultural forces that isolate them
manage the busyness of life without losing sight of each other
grow closer during hard times rather than allow troubles to pull them apart
"affair-proof" their relationship (or heal it after the fact)
discover the secrets of a mutually rewarding sex life
create a safe atmosphere for transparent communicationPrevious Edition: 0-8499-3343-9

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Sound, Solid Advice  Jul 23, 2005
This volume is sound, solid advice for married couples. While most of the tips and insights here offer few ideas that are new to books on Christian marriage, the way in which they are arranged is refreshingly original. The authors are right on target when they claim that the greatest enemy facing marriages today is isolation. Other resources touch upon this danger, but this work focuses upon it. It's not a great book, but it's very good.
 
Solid advice, but nothing new  Aug 18, 2004
Dennis and Barbara Rainey's book on how to avoid isolation in marriage is entertaining, and Scripturally based. That alone makes it better than most books written for the Christian market. But it's another version of the same marital advice you can find in a host of other books. It's not a bad place to start for new Christians or newlyweds. But if you have made a point of reading and attending conferences to keep your marriage strong, you'll find nothing groundbreaking here.
