In Emotional Infidelity: How to Affair-Proof Your Marriage and 10 Other Secrets to a Great Relationship, author M. Gary Neuman, delves into the destructive patterns of modern day relationships, and he rubbishes the perception that it’s okay to look, as long as you don’t touch. And, according to relationship experts, the internet is a dangerous seductress. It can lead to other things. Deceptively going behind your partner’s back to send and receive sexually arousing photographs and taking part in sexually inappropriate conversations qualifies as cheating.

What’s holding you back from a great marriage? “I don’t believe in ‘okay,’ ‘decent,’ or ‘solid’ marriages. I’m against them,” says M. Gary Neuman. “I believe only in great marriages, and that you should expect and reach for no less.” In the last fifteen years, M. Gary Neuman, marital therapist and architect of the Sandcastles Divorce Therapy Program, has helped thousands of couples in crisis. Couples who fight. Who’ve grown apart. Who are stuck in relationships that run more on routine and rancor than love and understanding. What he’s found is that, contrary to popular belief, the problem is usually not poor communication. It’s the failure to put most of your focus into your marriage. You’ve only got so much energy. Are you spending it by being emotionally unfaithful?Take a quick check: Do you send that funny e-mail to your friends at work—but not to your spouse? Do you chew over all the problems on the job so thoroughly with your colleagues that by the time you get home, you just don’t feel like going into it all over again? Do you get a secret thrill out of flirting with coworkers—thinking it’s safe because you know it’s not going any further? If so, you’re committing emotional infidelity—and you’re draining your marriage of the energy it needs to be great. Learning how to break this cycle is one of eleven secrets M. Gary Neuman shares in his provocative new book.Based on the ten-week program he’s developed in his successful couples counseling practice, the book offers guidelines that are often counterintuitive, even outrageous or shocking. But they work. Dare to limit contact with members of the opposite sex. Dare to need each other. Dare to put in writing the nitty-gritty realities of a marriage plan. Dare to put your marriage before your kids or job. Dare to make love in a whole new way. Dare to change your focus: make the commitment to focus on each of the eleven secrets (ten plus one bonus secret) for one week apiece and you’ll reap the rewards of a transformed marriage and a reconfirmed relationship.M. Gary Neuman’s program is guaranteed to challenge you and make you reexamine the myths holding you back from true happiness and satisfaction. It will change your marriage forever.

Gary Neuman "gets real" about what it takes to build a marriage. It's for those who are serious about making a great marriage the #1 priority in their lives. Neuman makes it clear that their are no excuses or shortcuts, if you want a Great marriage then you're going to have to put the effort in to make it so. He points out the simple fact that we put effort into every other area of our lives in which we want to be successful. Career, Education, Staying in shape etc. And for those things, we understand that we get out what we put in to them. But when it comes to a marriage we think it's just going to magically be great all on its own. Poor models and messages from society serve only to set false expectations about marriage. We start off our relationships with the odds stacked against us sometimes. Neuman's process helps put us on the original track we were intended before social influences, before dysfunctional childhood experiences, before bad relationships of the past. If you get excited by the possibility of having a GREAT marriage and are willing to make it a priority then this is the tool chest that will help get you there.

My favorite part is spotlighting the little things we do with opposite sex friends or colleagues that we categorize as "harmless". In reality it's not harmless. We are getting some pleasure or satisfaction otherwise we wouldn't do it. Neuman challenges us to walk away from those seemingly minor gateway behaviors as they too weaken our marriage bonds. Ask yourself "why does it annoy you to be asked to give up those behaviors"? Are they that important to you? Even though they weaken your marriage?

Neuman asks us to have patience to go through a carefully laid out process instead of skipping around to get to a specific problem. This is effective and unlike typical counseling sessions. By doing some groundwork first, you are in a healthier, stronger position to deal with specific problems. By following the process, you end up with more or better skills to address the immediate conflicts in a new more effective way. I ended up buying the Neuman Method Marriage series on DVD and I am very pleased with that. Neuman's style keeps it real and offers solutions that we all are capable of doing right now. I will pass these on to my married adult children when I'm done. Well done Mr. Neuman.

some good concepts, a little elementary for the issues I was searching for resources for, will not be a good fit all couples.

I wish I had read this book fifteen years ago when I was first married. However even now it has helped my marriage in ways I wouldn't have believed possible. This book flys counter to popular opinion with theories such as: 'Be codependent on one another' and 'Don't have close friends of the opposite sex'. Something we all need to hear- whether we agree or disagree with it. This book highlights the need for boundaries to protect marriage, and it is never too late to start. In ten straightforward steps, the author lays out the pattern for a successful marriage. But he also recognises every marriage is different, and the implementation of these steps is unique to each marriage. Read this alone or with your spouse. It does make a difference.

This is a fabulous book. You realize you haven't been loving your spouse as you should. With statistics of 50% of Marriages failing and of those 50% who stay together only 25% are happy shows the seriousness of working hard and making sure you have a solid, secure and happy marriage. This book will guide you to that vital goal. Get it, read it, apply it, as a couple.

This is a great book with excellent insight and suggestions for improving trust and your overall relationship in marriage.
Thank you, Gary Neuman, for graciously expressing the heart of the marriage promise...and how certain assumptions weasel their way between spouses and reduce what should be the most profound and requiting relationship of one's life to merely a working arrangement between acquaintances - or worse, divorce. I wish more counselors would read this book...and quit trying to fix troubled marriages by advising us how to "fight fair", "communicate effectively" and "discover your own sense of identity." Mr. Neuman is on target: spouses must NOT waste their energy on others instead of protecting and investing themselves in one another. This is the foundation of a healthy and happy relationship. Also of note: Great practical guidelines for men and women to follow if they want to have a marriage - and reputation - of integrity!

Post Script, 2011: Four years ago, I read this remarkable book and asked my husband to also consider Mr. Neuman's thesis, a very pertinent point for our struggling marriage. He agreed, read the first chapter, but somehow, in all the hustle and labor of his corporate travels, conventions and business-meetings-over-three-meals-a-day, "lost" the book in the bottom of a piece of luggage or moving box. After one particularly extended business excursion, he returned with a third wedding ring, which I found "hidden" in the box which originally held our wedding rings from 26 years ago. Starting at least 10 years earlier, he had become innured to social networking, corporate entertainment budgets which encouraged surreptitious double dating, and enless "get togethers/tweet-ups" with female business acquaintances who were "passing through town" and (when I finally gained access to some of their emails) frankly admitted that they had no actual business to discuss. After our youngest graduated from high school, I filed for divorce. He appears to be unaffected and continues to flirt with an endless parade of "professional" women.

Our 26 year marriage has ended in indescribable pain for me, depression, discouragement, financial ruin for everyone and a miserable model of dysfunctional marriage for our children. Dear reader, the fact that those who rejected Mr. Neuman's advice have seen their marriage dissolve and those who (you'll see among the reviews posted here) paid attention and employed Mr. Newman's wise suggestions have enjoyed a renewed love and thriving marriage tells you what you need to know. This book is well worth the investment of a few dollars for Mr. Neuman's wisdom, but the real value of this volume is in its application!
