David E. Clarke
You married a good man. He loves you. He’s committed to you. He treats you well. You fully and sincerely appreciate who he is and what he does for you and for the family. The problem is, he does not meet some of your most important, God-given needs.
Eighty-five percent of all husbands are intimacy-challenged. Your conversations are brief, safe, and superficial. He does not reveal what he’s really thinking and feeling inside. He believes your marriage is great. He’s perfectly happy…and the intimate, romantic, emotional part of you is dying a slow death. Working together, the two of you can create an intimate marriage. In Married...but Lonely Dr. David Clarke will show you seven steps that you as the wife can implement with or without your husband's cooperation and begin to experience the kind of marriage you've always wanted.
1) We've started implementing the steps and already see the difference in our relationship. I think a big thing that most people don't give enough consideration to is all the hurts that we bring to our relationships and how they affect how we interact with our spouses, whether we realize it or not. This is huge! Dr. Clarke gives excellent advice on how to purge those hurts from our deepest places and cleanse our souls to be free to grow in our relationships.
2) Wow, I am blown away as I really didn't understand all the needs of my wife or past girlfriends. As I was reading through the chapters I kept thinking this is man "open up your feelings" bashing techniques. That was until I got to the chapter aimed at woman and their roles in relationships. What a great book also for couples who aren't married yet and just dating. A truly amazing read.
