Audio Book Summary

Laura Doyle's marriage was in trouble. After five years, her husband had become distant. He seemed checked out of their relationship, preferring watching TV to making love. There were frequent fights that ended with tense silences and even threats of divorce. Marriage counseling actually made their problems worse. Each session seemed to reinforce the feeling that she and her husband were just too far apart.

Desperate to avoid divorcing the man she loved, Laura tried something different. Rather than consulting with experts or professionals, she simply started talking to women who'd been happily married for more than fifteen years. What she discovered shocked her: Everything she had heard in marriage counseling was wrong. Laura realized that there are basic truths that can help women maintain loving, intimate marriages.

After seeing her own marriage transform, Laura set out to help other women do the same. In this book, you'll learn Laura's 'Six Intimacy Skills,' which have been used by over 150,000 women who have transformed their previously unhappy marriages into blissful unions.

    While there was a bit of good basic relationship advice in this book, please don't choose to listen to this if you are even a tiny bit of a feminist. This reads like a 50s instruction manual for marriage and does not take into account the man in the relationship. As far as I can tell, the man takes no responsibility for anything in the relationship and as long as we are respectful, our marriages will be great. Not a fan.

    In all honesty, I didn’t make it past the Intro. There were many absolute statements and content presented as if this book will leave one in a utopia of a marriage forever. It just rings too inauthentic for me, narration included.

    Such amazing advise. It's hard to except that we push men into a corner, then get mad that they aren't the man we married.
