Romancing Your Better Half

Romancing Your Better Half
Keeping Intimacy Alive in Your Marriage
Rick Johnson
Romantic love is often thought to wane after the first few years of marriage. The author takes the read through what intimacy is and how to keep it going in your marriage. Written for both the husband and the wife, this book is full of facts, statistics, Biblical advice, and practical tips. The book reads like a well researched paper with all of the facts about marriage. But the author throws in personal stories that are either from his own experiences or that fit well with the subject matter. At the end of each chapter is a section that gives some suggestions for taking the advice in the chapter and putting it to practical use.

I could tell the book had been written by a man. It had a more logical approach with less of an emotional feel. But the content was good, the chapters weren't too long, and the author added humor and stories to lighten all of the facts. I certainly don't see my husband reading this, but it would perhaps work if we read it together over the course of several months. It isn't really a how-to book, but more about digging deeper and the theory of intimacy.

I received this book free of charge from Revell Reads in exchange for my honest review.
