Information about Lasting Love

While this site is primarily devoted to dealing with extramarital affairs, it also includes information aimed at helping couples sustain a lasting love. (This is very different from sustaining "hot sex" or the "romantic feelings" of new love.)

So I want to encourage everyone to look beyond the first romantic stage of love and get a clearer understanding of what's involved in having a love that lasts.

So here are some suggested readings about "Love:"

The Full Monty
This is a chapter James and I wrote as our contribution to a book by relationship experts.

This is the first chapter from our book, Making Love Stay, that follows the progression of how love changes over time.

This book reminds us of all the things that make a difference in our love over time and includes an extensive list of tips for sustaining that love.
