Love in the Present Tense: How to Have a High Intimacy, Low Maintenance Marriage
Bull Publishing Company, Jan 1, 2003 - Family & Relationships - 191 pages
Drawing on their expertise on personal growth in the workplace and from their experience with couples in their popular workshops, Morrie and Arleah Shechtman present a new approach that challenges common notions about what makes a good marriage work. They recognise that myths about marriage often lead people to aim for unrealistic ideals. Examining eight myths about relationships -- including: Love will carry you through the hard times; You need to work on your relationship if you want it to be good; and Spending lots of time together is very important -- the book also presents contrasting realities to help strengthen the bond. For those working to build a relationship or struggling to hold one together, this book provides powerful new ways to overcome old behaviours and create a new connection that springs from a shared understanding of one another's needs.
