Book Description

First Published in 1963, Sex in Marriage presents down to earth, practical guidance on the emotional and physical aspects of life, love and marriage. The authors both experienced psychotherapists, have felt that a new approach was needed. The book explains in a straightforward and thorough manner the sources of satisfaction and the roots of discontent that lie beneath the surface of any marriage. It traces marriage from the beginning, through its middle years and into its older stages, including considerations that are concrete and practical but still have a fundamental and sound emotional base. The book illustrates how attitudes in sex and marriage go back to childhood and how early experiences, though forgotten, can still exercise important influences. In helping to alleviate old guilts and anxieties, the book makes an essential contribution. This is an interesting read for sociologists, psychologists and for general readers.
