      “For Men Only” and “For Women Only” by Shaunti Feldhahn, were books that helped me understand myself and men.

      Other than that, I have not found a book on the topic that I have had any desire to waste my time on finishing reading. I have started multiple recommended books, but they weren’t my thing.

        The book that had the greatest impact on my marriage, and led to the dramatic turning point that got us on the right track, was “The Verbally Abusive Relationship” by Patricia Evans.

        The other books that played a significant role were “Why Marriages Succeed and Fail: And How You Can Make Yours Last” and “The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work” by John Gottman.

        John Gottman taught me how to communicate effectively without triggering defensiveness and how to listen non-defensively, and Patricia Evans taught me where I needed to set the boundaries.

        More recently, “How We Love” by Milan and Kay Yerkovich has been teaching me how to minister emotionally to my husband in new ways that have made a significant difference.

          CELEBRATION OF SEX is good.  My wife and I have also read many others including CRAZY GOOD SEX….HOT MAMA…PASSION PURSUIT…INTIMACY IGNITED…INTIMATE ISSUES… THE LANGUAGE OF SEX and several more.

          SHE COMES FIRST is a great book by a secular author solely on cullingus.

          When it comes to 2nd marriages, I HIGHLY recommend anything by Ron Deal on stepfamilies &  step-parenting.  They should be required reading BEFORE a couple gets engaged for a second time. (We almost stopped dating because of them because there is a lot of tough roads and HARD work ahead.)  We keep going back to them 3 yrs in for reminders, help and encouragement that when we preserver the rewards will come yrs later.

            Cherish, by Gary Thomas is the one which had the greatest impact on the way I think. If you want to truly be challenged, read it.

              Some of those already mentioned have been good.  Also, these come to mind:

              Intimacy Ignited (Dillow & Pintus) or Sacred Marriage (Thomas) or His Needs, Her Needs (Harley) and Intimate Issues (Pintus & Dillow)

                Currently reading The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work by Gottman and it is AMAZING! Although I was married 33 years the first time I am learning a lot in preparation for my second marriage.

                Love and Respect by Eggerichs totally changed my first marriage!

                5 Love Languages by Chapman – get the book from the library and learn your spouses language!

                5 Languages of Apology by Chapman – WOW this was powerful in my first marriage! I spent 25 years assuming he had a hard time forgiving and it turned out I wasn’t apologizing properly. Once I did he melted! Amazing! So much is spoken about regarding love languages but few mention this one, yet arguments can be toxic in a relationship. You can also get this from the library and read it once. No need to own it.

                I loved that book! I spent half our marriage wondering why my DH could never apologize. Once I read that book, I realized that he was, in his language. My language was totally different. I really thought he was too proud to apologize ‘properly’.
