5.0 out of 5 stars Anything after "NO" is abuse. 9 Nov. 2012
By Bill - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found "To Love and Cherish..." a disturbing yet compelling account of a woman's long struggle as a victim of spousal sexual abuse. It made me angry and brought me to tears. As a counselor I deal with hidden shame and terror on a daily basis, including marital rape, incest, physical and sexual assault and much more. "To Love and to Cherish" is authentic. It mirrors the experiences of my clients and brings hidden, disgusting, dark marital practices into bright, open, cleansing light. The author was unbelievably courageous to share such personal parts of her life. Her brave, vulnerable account will serve as both a warning to perpetrators and more so an invitation to their victims to resist and escape their unimaginably painful acts of insensitivity, domination and cruelty.

"Anything Goes" has been the sexual montra of the modern age. "To Love and to Cherish" has exposed an extreme expression of "Anything Goes" as heinous and destructive. She has firmly and appropriately altered the culture's voice of freedom to read "Anything Mutually Enjoyable and Consensual Goes." Being Loving must include "respect" and "self control" so the wishes of both partners have equal weight in the relationship. I hope this book finds its way into the hands of the thousands of women (and men) whose experience has included hidden practices of sexual abuse in their own relationships. Then I hope that the victims of spousal sexual abuse will have courage enough halt unwanted sexual advances or practices. I hope they say resist with their feet, walking or running away from their abuse and then sprinting toward their what their hearts need and deserve. It is my hope that these women believe they are worthy of tenderness, caring attention, respect and understanding expressed with a humbly honored "no."

I appreciate D.Anne Pierce's willingness to write about a painful subject. Many people are not willing to speak up about their painful experiences. I think it might help other women if we would open up more. Great job, Anne!

5.0 out of 5 stars This could have been my story 9 Jan. 2013
By Tiffany - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a quick read but packed with practical information and real life stories. It was so nice to read about someone who has overcome this very hidden abuse in marriage and to realize that sexual abuse in marriage is a reality and not just something the victim imagines. More people need to be made aware of the damage that sexual abuse in marriage causes and this book wonderfully communicates this message while at the same time embraces victims of marital sexual abuse with the message that they are not alone.
