Spiritual Philosophy Teacher This engaging and entertaining book delivers powerful stories and insightful tools to empower couples to achieve extraordinary success. An essential instruction manual for intimate relationships. David Krueger MD, Executive Mentor Coach Author, The Secret Language of Money Nearly half of all Americans think marriage is obsolete.

Still, infidelity happens... and often. If you picked up this book and are having an affair, in an exclusive relationship, have been betrayed by your partner, plan on being married, have secret conversations with someone you met online, worry about couples cheating as the norm today, this book is for you. An issue splashed across the media virtually every day, occurring in both celebrity and private lives, it is the right time to address marriage, committed relationships, extra-marital affairs, cybersex, communication problems, the evolution of women in society as it relates to marriage, and our American sexualized society today. Rica Gold, Ph.D., formally practiced as a licensed Marriage Family Therapist for more than twenty years and hosted her own live radio and television shows. She is currently the owner of Clear Transitions, Life and Wellness Coaching, providing individual and group coaching to both the business and private sector.
