David Schnarch (1997). Passionate marriage: Keeping love and intimacy alive in committed relationships, 1st Edition. New York, NY. Henry Holt& Company, LLC.
Comment : This is an interesting, as well as educational, book regarding intimate relationship. According to the author, the “self-validation” is a crucial factor that makes intimacy possible. We recommend the book to couples who are experiencing blocks that hold them back from experiencing intimacy in their relationship. However, in our opinion, the “self-validation” may be not the only component that contributes to a intimate relationship. And mostly, it seems to be equally important to define what intimacy means before we buy into the theory.
Janis Abrahms Spring (2006). After the Affair: Healing the pain and rebuilding trust when a partner has been unfaithful, 2nd edition. New York, NY. HarperCollins Publishers.
Comment : “Infidelity” is one of the few things that can seriously damage the couple’s relationship. “Why did the affair happen?” “Once love and trust are gone, can we ever get them back?” “Can I-should-recommit when I feel so ambivalent?” “How do we become sexually intimate again? And, “If forgiveness possible?” The author is one of the professional that tries to answer those difficult questions. We recommend this book highly and suggest you to make your conclusions.
Henry Cloud & John Townsend (1999). Boundaries in Marriage. New York, NY. Grand Rapids, Michigan. Zondervan Publishing House.
Comment : “Only when you and your mate know and respect each other’s needs, choices, and
freedom can you give yourselves freely and lovingly to one another.” Adequate boundary provides the foundation for
the true intimacy to be nurtured on.
