How to Stay Married & Love It!
Solving the Puzzle of A SoulMate MarriageBook - 2002 | 1st ed.
"How to Stay Married & Love It " Solves the puzzle of how to create and sustain a loving, passionate, healthy relationship. This volume in the two volume series covers the four essential pieces for building a strong foundation: Accepting each other's point of view as valid, (2) Fostering intimate connection by learning and using great speaking and listening skills, (3) Committing to respect each other 24/7 by productive management of upsets, and (4) Committing to each other and the relationship for life. Nancy and her late husband Jim share these skills which they learned as they navigated the mine field of enormous conflict to the SoulMate marriage of their dreams. Illustrations are also shared from couples they taught in their classes and who were personally coached by Nancy. Marriage is skill-based. It either succeeds or fails based on how the partners treat each other. Failing love is the result of poor relationship skills. Love returns, often greater than before, when new, effective ways of managing communication and conflict are learned and consistently applied. Giving up on a marriage because the love is gone is like selling a car because it ran out of gas This book demonstrates "How to..." heal from past hurts, find solutions that meet both persons' needs and reignite love or build on the love you already enjoy
