Men and women seek different elements of intimacy. This book argues that a failure to understand the opposite gender's intimacy needs can contribute to relationship distress. Jane Ridley explores potentially critical periods and turning points in a couple's relationship, including sexuality, pregnancy, ageing, the impact of earlier separation and dealing with children from previous relationships.
