I Do … Again

The most personally demanding and simultaneously the most rewarding relationship is marriage, or a long-term love relationship.

Love Works

Love relationships can work. And this is the frst book to offer concrete guidelines and proven, effective techniques for making them work. This is not a Pollyanna book that offers syrupy band-aids to quick-fx some of the most heartbreaking misery people are likely to endure in their search for happiness.

Our program goes beyond the view that males and females are, by their nature and always will be, antagonists. We do not see the relationship as a constantly draining, haggling experience where partners are expected to compromise and give up half of who they are to form a new entity called the couple. This brings up the image of a ferce, mythological two-headed dragon bound together at its loins with both of it’s heads swaying and swinging and snapping, trying to infict a mortal bite to the other neck.

A New View of the Love Relationship

We see the relationship as a fully cooperative experience where both participants not only remain 100% who they are but are encouraged to grow and become everything they can be. We see the relationship as a loving, protective environment within which two fully realized human beings are not only allowed to exist but are encouraged and supported in their life-long effort to be all they can be.
