Between Husband and Wife: Gospel Perspectives on Marital Intimacy (Paperback) *
Author - Lamb/Brinley
Marriage, as ordained by a loving Father in Heaven, brings two souls together on the path toward His presence. And the special intimacy that can exist between a righteous husband and wife serves to ennoble and enhance their union. But for too many, intimacy can become a source of guilt, frustration, and even conflict.
President Spencer W. Kimball stated, "If you study the divorces . . . you will find there are [many] reasons. Generally, sex is the first; they did not get along sexually. They may not say that in court. They may not even tell that to their attorneys, but that is the reason."
Where does a Church member go for a clear, gospel-based understanding of intimacy? What new information is available about the differences between men and women, and how does it impact intimacy? What new medical insights are available for middle-aged and older LDS couples who want to improve or revitalize this aspect of their relationship?
Drawing upon their years of experience teaching, counseling, and writing on the subject, Professor Brinley and Dr. Lamb have gathered teachings and testimonies of modern prophets and united them with current medical research-available for the first time in this revised edition to offer valuable and straightforward responses to these questions.
The result is a wonderful resource for engaged or married couples who are seeking a simple and consistent gospel-based discussion of intimacy. It is also an excellent reference for middle-aged and older couples, making it a valuable resource for couples of all ages.

A MUST READ for the engaged and married. A great book that needed to be written. #1 in my eyes. It keeps intimacy sacred but discusses relevant topics not covered else where. Heavy on G.A. and Prophet quotes which to me is important as it is evident that the content is not simply the opinion of the authors.
Wish I had this book 30 years ago!
