All of us want to be fully accepted in our relationships, yet it can be difficult to fully accept our partners for who they are. This insightful guide for couples is based on a simple concept: Act out of kindness, love, and acceptance, and you will open your relationship for the creation of greater kindness, love, and acceptance.

With strategies drawn from acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), a powerful therapeutic approach, this book will help you identify your core values and discover, as a couple, the beauty that is available to you and your partner when you bring greater awareness and values-guided behavior to your relationship. Each chapter explores a key issue, such as passion, fidelity, and the balance between dependence and independence, and includes specific practices you can do alone or with your partnerto help you build a vital relationship.

This was a wonderful book! My husband and I actually started reading it together out loud and switch who reads! When I initially got this book I did not expect that to happen but it did and we both have really enjoyed our experience reading it and the time we spending doing so as well as reflecting on our own marriage! Now it has started something for us to do together we have already picked out more books to read together! THANK You
