A road map to having a vibrant, long-term love affair.

Marriage is an exercise in busy. It's not--by any stretch of the imagination--a spontaneous experience. Unlike the dating years, when we willingly flung every responsibility to the wind to be in our lover's arms, marriage conspires to pull us earth-bound, distracting us from love with weighty responsibilities, insistent duties, and insane time pressures. We've got jobs and family obligations. We've got dinners to make, a house to vacuum, laundry to do, yard work, and when you add kids to the equation, the to-do list grows exponentially. How can we maintain an amorous life through all of the crazy, pressure-filled marital stuff we live through each week?

Naked Marriage covers all of the topics that we need to have a healthy, intimate, and sexual life:

A weekly "date" with an undisturbed hour or two for being intimate and sexual with each other Access to soul-ease experiences and fun or romance Sex grounded in mutual fulfilment, so we want to come back for more Affection guidelines that help keep us in our sensuality, even when we're busy Easy-on-the-soul strategies for checking in with each other Clear strategies for our money, parenting, and lifestyle choices, so financial and family pressures don't block our pathway to the bedroom

Author JoAnneh Nagler offers practical strategies to get the gifts of marriage--intimacy, sex, closeness--into your hearts, hands, souls, and bodies. Nagler, who shares the story of losing the love of her life and then getting him back years later, shows you the steps to create passion in a busy life. The strategies don't require a lot of heavy lifting or intensive archeological therapizing, and there's no need to dig up the past. They're simple, short, and sweet.
