NEW YORK, June 15 /PRNewswire/ -- While TV hosts and bloggers debate the splits of Tiger and Elin Woods, Sandra Bullock and Jesse James, Al and Tipper Gore, mega-bestselling author John Gray knows exactly what it takes to win the marriage marathon.

"The secret to a super marriage is passionate monogamy," says Gray.  "A couple has to share a hot and lasting desire for each other, an intimate connection that makes cheating not worth it."

Gray explains, "Many men don't instinctively understand that monogamy makes a woman feel special and loved. Trust is essential for a woman to continue getting turned on to her partner. Loyalty is sexy."

Gray stars in the television special, JOHN GRAY: VENUS ON FIRE, MARS ON ICE, presented by WLIW21-New York, airing nationwide on PBS member stations (local listings at  His new book, VENUS ON FIRE MARS ON ICE: Hormonal Balance -- the Key to Life, Love, and Energy, describes small diet, exercise and lifestyle shifts that can quickly turn a relationship from bitter to sweet, from boring to sexy, while reducing body fat and restoring good health at any age.

"As we live longer and expect more pleasure in mature years, we need to commit even more to romantic marriage," says John Gray. "After 30 years counseling couples, I discovered 6 Steps to Passionate Monogamy that can firewall any relationship."

Make sex spontaneous and frequent. 2-3 times a week is ideal for most relationships.

Utilize a healthy diet, supplements and sleep to restore hormones and reduce stress.

Criticism destroys passion.  Compliments are free.

Each loving act counts as one point to a woman.  Flowers, helping her, and the simple act of listening all count.  A man just needs to know he makes you happy.

Anything other than honesty is cheating. Flirting and porn pull you in the opposite direction.

Keep passionate monogamy as your goal and regularly re-commit to that as a loving couple.

John Gray became the New York Times #1 bestselling author of the last decade with Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus.  He has sold over 50 million books, appeared on Oprah, Larry King, Today Show, The View and a Barbara Walters celebrity interview.
