Naked Marriage: Uncovering Who You Are and Who You Can Become Together by Dr. Corey Allan.
From the back cover:
Many couples have a false notion of what married life truly is – and these rose-colored assumptions tend to heighten expectations to such unrealistic levels that couples find themselves frustrated and feeling alone.
What if marriage were designed for a specific purpose?
What if some of the problems faced in marriage are not meant to be solved, they’re meant to be lived through?
Because many people don’t understand what marriage is and could be, they hide from each other. To keep the peace, they continue the charades, each spouse reluctantly believing, “I guess this is just how it’s supposed to be.” Consequently, they refuse to get naked with each other in all of that word’s scary yet glorious permutations: emotionally, spiritually, and physically.
Naked Marriage encourages you to find yourself and fully reveal yourself, so you and your marriage can become fully alive.
From a review on Amazon:
I’ve read a lot of books on marriage/relationships (Gottman’s ‘Seven Principles’, Chapman’s ‘Love Languages’, Johnson’s ‘Hold Me Tight’) and this is one of the first books that talk about how it’s not the marriage, but it’s me. It’s about growing myself up, not about changing my spouse or my marriage. It’s empowering to hear how I can change things, how I can grow up, how I can work on being better and live a life that I hope my spouse joins me on. This is my favourite book of the year. ~ EP
