“A classic.” —William H. Masters, M.D.

Passionate Marriage has long been recognized as the pioneering book on intimate human relationships. Now with a new preface by the author, this updated edition explores the ways we can keep passion alive and even reach the height of sexual and emotional fulfillment later in life. Acclaimed psychologist David Schnarch guides couples toward greater intimacy with proven techniques developed in his clinical practice and worldwide workshops. Chapters—covering everything from understanding love relationships to helpful "tools for connections" to keeping the sparks alive years down the road—provide the scaffolding for overcoming sexual and emotional problems. This inspirational book is sure to help couples invigorate their relationships and reach the fullest potential in their love lives.
David Schnarch, PhD, a licensed clinical psychologist and certified sex therapist, directs the Marriage and Family Health Center in Evergreen, Colorado. He is the author of Constructing the Sexual Crucible and Resurrecting Sex.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic and Thought Provoking This book provided a lot more than advice on how to keep passion in a marriage/relationship. Even for a single person, this book introduced new ways at looking at relationship styles and how a person interacts with others. Found myself challenged to re-evaluate my approach to relationships (romantic or otherwise). Read the book several months ago and am already seeing astounding results in my life. Can't say enough good about this.
