Secrets to Lasting Love
Uncovering the Keys To Life-Long Intimacy
By Gary Smalley
This book teaches you how to have good communication in your marriage. There are many problems that arise from lack of good communication. The book uses examples to illustrate these problems. Gary then gives five distinct levels of communication to help couples understand at what level they are at and how to go further to the fifth intimate level.

“Secrets to Lasting Love” has some simple tests that a couple can use to determine how well they relate to each other. Further tests reveal what their spouse’s personality is, so that they can honor each other’s differences. If a couple is having difficulty in honoring each other Gary gives a chart of examples on how to change negative responses to positive responses. He helps you list what you like about your spouse and how well you handle trials in your marriage to reveal how much you honor your spouse. Gary encourages you to keep an “honor book” so you will value your partner more.

Gary then talks about communication and answers questions such as: “How do you really listen?” and “What can improve my listening skills?” Gary then defines different listening levels and teaches how to be the best listener for your spouse. Different styles of speech also contribute to positive or negative feelings in your relationship and Gary helps you develop better styles.

The book also contains information on the seven love needs that can recharge your spouse. Gary gives you some example of women’s needs and men’s needs so you can start thinking about meeting your spouse’s needs. If you spend twenty minutes a day and use the ideas presented in this book, you can begin to uncover the keys you need to have life-long intimacy in your marriage.
