A fresh approach
This book is excellent in every respect. It is for indiviuals and/or couples, is very easy to read, not preachy, full of practical ideas and exercises (rather than endless theory)and most importantly full of HOPE for a more fulfilling life. It provides insights that can help those who just want to improve the good marriages they already have. But it can really help those struggling with a troubled marriage, whether as a result of infidelity, those wondering why they don't love their partner they way they used to or just the the ups and downs of marriage. Importantly, the author gives ideas that can be practiced whether or not your partner wants to participate in the improvment process. Strongly recommended.
This book is recommeded by the Marriage Course ( a course to help strengthen relationships). its easy to get bogged down in life and forget your partner. it helps you understand how you and they feel loved, something which we need to get right. people feel loved in different ways and not necessarily the way that you yourself feels love.
I reccommend this along with doing The Marriage Course (a course that is available throughout the country) It consists of 7 nights with a meal, a dvd talk and a workbook. its like an 7 week long date and helps to reignite communication and dealing with life together and face conflicts. Do a google to find your local one!
One to keep!
This book helps you to see from another person's perspective and then more effectively demonstrate that you value them. Giving flowers and chocolates are good romantic gestures for some people - but others would really value a good conversation more - or could you wash up and empty the bins more often?
Touch, (including hugging children or sex with your partner,) is one of the categories, as are "words of affirmation" or compliments.
The premise of the book is marriage but it can help in other types of interpersonal relationships at home or work.
I wish I could get my husband to read it! We did talk it through though. Unfortunately, because it has the word "love" in the title, he felt it necessary to hide it away as if it were pornographic. You don't need to! This is suitable for all the family.
