    One thought on “Married...But Lonely: Stop Merely Existing. Start Living Intimately”

    1. Terribly outdated, religious ideasI read this book as a research tool, and I have to say, I have never ever left a poor book review before yet I'm moved to with this one. At first I was merely uncomfortable with the highly religious subtext, but finding some interesting ideas on between, I soldiered on. It was around this point that I stopped reading:Submission means to allow your husband to be the leader in your relationship and to yield to his authority. Not because he is superior, is more int [...]

    2. This book carries a message of hope, ultimately. Marriage is hard but surely isn't meant to be miserable. The Clarke's agree. That's why they wrote Married but Lonely. Nothing matches the pain that you find in a wife's eyes when she feels disconnected from her husband. She knows that he loves her, she knows she loves him, but the daily love relationship is barely breathing.She speaks, and all he hears is the fed-up tone of her voice instead of what her heart is saying. She brings up an unsolved [...]

    3. I read the book and honestly thought that it was good. As a husband (who has been married for 12 years) I didn’t know that I was an intimacy avoider and it gave my insight into many things. I will definitely follow some of the advice in the book as I think our marriage can only benefit from it. However, I felt that the book was a bit unbalanced insofar as it focussed heavily on the shortcomings of men in marriage. What the authors suggest is that you must become 110% focussed on your wife’s [...]

    4. What an amazing book! We are celebrating 25 years of marriage this year. Our marriage wasn't bad, but it was lonely. This book opened my eyes as to the why of feeling lonely. I was literally lonely because his job requires 14-16 hours a day (truck driving and dock work) but I discovered I was emotionally lonely.This is not a doomsday book. It's a very practical approach to bring more understanding and more emotional intimacy to your marriage. It isn't a husband bashing book either because we wiv [...]

    5. Serious information in an easily readable format. I think this is information every Christian couple can benefit from. I am blessed to have a lovely marriage. My husband brought it home from a AACC conference where he met Dr. Clarke, and asked me to read it and give him some feedback before he read it. I was surprised to find it gave voice to some of my suspicions about what was causing me frustration, and gave me tools to improve our communication and relationship. Hubby will be reading it ASAP [...]

    6. The title of this book was immediately appealing to me, though from the actual book description, it looks as if it's intended mainly for women with apparently happy, but uncommunicative, husbands. Which seems a little stereotypical, but probably also true for many. Even so, I'd still be curious to give it a read and see if there's anything I can learn from it in order to be happier in my own relationship life, in which I often feel lonely and stifled.

    7. A little late.A very good book. I thoroughly appreciated the strong approach he took with every issue involving a floundering marriage. I wish I had read it 30-40 years ago. My husband and i "celebrated" our 55th anniversary this year. Enough said.
