The Living Marriage
The Living Marriage is a translation and upgraded version of the Hebrew book, Binyan HaBayis, which has helped tens of thousands of couples enhance their marriage over the past two decades. A couple’s intimacy is one of the central foundations of a vibrant marriage relationship, and when approached properly it can bring the couple to the greatest levels of unity and happiness. The Living Marriage is a transmission of the Oral Torah which the author personally received from our teachers, the Steipler Gaon, Rav Shneur Kotler, as well as other Gedolim, regarding this essential and often-confused topic.
Regarding the lessons which are being given by HaGaon Rav Moshe Shuchatowitz shlita concerning guiding chosonim and avreichim. I heard from our teacher Rav Chaim Kanievsky shlita who, after he was shown the written classes, said – “the teachings are good, and this is what needs to be said. He should continue giving the classes as he has been doing.” I was instructed to write this from Rabbeinu shlita, Eliyahu Mann.
- HaGaon Rabbeinu Chaim Kanievsky shlita [as transcribed by Rav Eliyahu Mann]
“I hereby come to acknowledge the esteemed virtue of HaRav HaGaon Rav Moshe Shuchatowitz shlita who seems to be from the unique individuals that our Father in Heaven has implanted in this world to help our generation; to raise us in serving Hashem, to enlighten family life, and to be of great assistance to bachurim and avreichim in overcoming various hardships...”
- HaGaon Rav Dov Yaffe zt”l
“… The sefer Binyan HaBayis from HaGaon Rav Moshe Shuchatowitz shlita clarifies this matter [marital intimacy] with deep examination of the sugyas in the gemara as well as from shimush gedolim. There is nothing like it in clarifying the depth of this sugya; it is a proper balance and knowledge of the ideas… We have seen that avreichim who went in this way have ascended, have more tranquility in their homes, and have avoided many mishaps that come from the nisyonos that exist today.”
- HaGaon Rav Yehoshua Eichenstein shlita
