Intimacy. What is it? Contrary to what the tabloids might have us believe, achieving true intimacy with another person is a multifaceted endeavor. Intimacy is the compelling desire and need to be linked to, or connected with, another person. And this linkage can occur in several ways.

Recommends it for: Married people or getting married people
Recommended to Aimee by: Karaline Everett
This is a great book. I think it should be required reading for anyone that wants to be married. It cleared up some things for me, and I've been married for five years now. LDS values, wonderful book.

This book is interesting. It pointed out a lot of stuff that I hadn't previously realized or thought of, but there were aspects I didn't like. It said that "sex" is often a selfish thing, but "sharing love" is acceptable. I understand what it's trying to say, but it's a matter of giving terms different meanings and nothing more. I just didn't like the way they worded that section.

Overall, this is a great book for all soon-to-be married couples, newlyweds, and already married couples.

My parents gave this book to all of their children before we got married. Didn't ever read it until like 4 years after I was married. haha. I liked it ok. Talks about couples being unified spiritually, emotionally, and physically in order to have the greatest level of intimacy. To be honest, I can't remember why I didn't like it that much...I read it a long time ago.

For how short this book is (72 pages, 5 chapters), it certainly has a wealth of information. It's short and to the point, and the faith of this couple is tangible as they share realistic information about how to have a healthy marriage.
