Beyond the excitement of building a life together lies the reality that the quality of a marriage relationship is built upon physical and emotional intimacy. Too many couples begin in ignorance, not understanding their own needs or those of the person they love. Countless studies have shown that this can lead to problems and conflicts over the sexual aspects of marriage that may contribute to unhappiness and even divorce. How much better to establish a basis for open communication, unselfishness, and love by learning the facts about the differing sexual, emotional, social, and spiritual needs of men and women.
Written from an LDS perspective, Becoming One offers frank, easy-to-understand information that can keep married couples on the path to a happy, fulfilling relationship—one that will serve them well throughout all the stages of their married lives.
I highly recommend that all LDS couples who are engaged and preparing for marriage read this book before their wedding night. I am a Marriage and Family therapist and I have read most of the books out there for LDS couples about sex and this is one of the few (if not the only) that isn't focused on PROBLEMS. This books gives great information (centered in the gospel and other research) that is helpful for couples who want to have a wonderful first experience and a healthy sex life as a married couple. It also is a great tool to facilitate conversations about sex both before and after marriage. A must read!
