Publisher's Summary

Boy meets girl. Boy marries girl. Boy and girl enjoy the sparks in the early years, but eventually settle into a comfortable friendship, and all passion disappears from their marriage. That s just the way it goes, right? As many as one in three long-term marriages in America are sexless, and most people accept this as the inevitable course of a romantic relationship. In this groundbreaking book, Rabbi Shmuley Boteach explains why the prioritizing of love and companionship in marriage is all wrong, and why we should not go quietly into that dark night of celibate marriage. It is not love, Rabbi Shmuley shows, but lust that is the glue of a marriage.

In this book you will learn how to restore lust to its rightful place as the central pillar of marriage. You will learn about the three principles of lust, and how to tap into them to keep the flames burning in the family hearth. Finally, you will discover the incredible emotional and spiritual potential of the intimate marital bond. In a wide-ranging discussion that plumbs the depths of the erotic mind, Rabbi Shmuley delivers a revolutionary message with the power to completely transform your most important relationship.

True Enlightenment

The book helped me to see why some of my husbands behavior is the way it is. And things that I need to work on and things we can work on together. very eye opening.

Worst narrator!

The content is good, if a bit repetitive but the narration is absolutely horrible! The ton keeps changing mid sentence, so cringe worthy! It sounds like they picked someone from the street to read this.

What is the point again?

Everything said in this book could be done in one chapter of a real book.

A Vital Truth for Marriages

The title put me off - I very nearly didn't buy this book, but wow, I now wish I knew this when I got married 35 years ago!! Brilliant insight. Practical and potentially life-changing!

All young men should be taught this before they start getting involved with the opposite sex.

I am not sure if I could have coped with the tension and relationship anxiety all those years ago, but I know I never did fully understand what my wife really meant when she wanted me to be more 'romantic' back then - now I know!

I few words are mis-pronounced, but this is very minor.
