The Marriage You've Always Dreamed Of offers couples usable, practical tools that, when applied, will help them break away from discouraging patterns and significantly increase the level of satisfaction in their marriages. Often, in an attempt to get one to do what the other wants, couples play on each other's core fears, which results in responses that injure the relationship. Greg Smalley helps couples identify their repetitive negative patterns of relating, which he calls the “fear dance.” His profound relationship insight is taught through helpful lessons about honor, respect, and caregiving.
