Publisher's Summary

Do you find yourself in relationships full of problems and anger? Are you tired of your relationships falling apart due to poor communication? Maybe, your current relationship feels emotionally, mentally, and physically exhausting, and you have no idea how to make it easier?

The overwhelming feelings of frustration and pent-up negative emotions toward your partner is uncomfortable. You may be asking yourself: I use to think my partner was perfect. Am I falling out of love with the person?

Everyone is going to ask themselves these exact questions at one point in their relationship, and it's 100 percent not your fault for feeling this way. It can be scary and upsetting to think about. What people don't know is that love changes over time in relationships.

First, we have an exciting infatuation phase where your partner has no flaws, usually called the butterflies stage. Then, after a few months to a few years, the infatuation stage disappears and turns into a different kind of love. 

In 2001, Schwartz's study by the Harvard Psychiatry titled "A theory of lasting relationships" describes a different kind of love as a softer feeling - a warmth that fills you up and is even more satisfying comfort and constant feeling. Real lasting love committed to their partner despite the obstacles they encounter along the way. Unfortunately, the majority of relationships don't even make it past the infatuation stage due to poor communication and disappointing high standards for the other partner.

In this book, you will be given a map to effective communication in your relationships.

You will be shown that love is more than just a feeling, but a committed choice to stay with someone and face all the obstacles in the world.

In this knowledgeable guide, you'll discover:

  • Why this one crucial mistake could hurt your chances with ever-lasting Love and how to avoid it
  • How to use these 3 easy to understand principles to better your relationships and create passionate intimacy
  • Why working on you is more important than fixing your partner - and how to better yourself
  • How this little known fact is good for Love and how you can use it to your advantage
  • What are the absolute four worst things that you could be doing right now that could escalate a fight and, maybe, destroy your relationship
  • What are the ways how this one process, if not noticed, can make you ignore your partners love without realizing and how it can kill your relationship
  • What it takes for healthy couples to strengthen their Love and communication - and what struggling couples don't have
  • How you can better your connection with your partner using this one golden rule
  • And much, much more!

By relying on expert advice from therapists, this audiobook will show you how to communicate effectively, understand what true Love is, and lead you to better relationships.

So, if you want to have better communication in relationships, understand love, and do much more, click the "buy now" button!

We need to learn to trust our spouse.

I love the idea they had about how your spouse is your mirror and if they are honestly telling you something that you can't just ignore it. They see you in a different way than you see yourself and you married them for a reason. We need to learn to trust our spouse.

It was very well explained.

A good compact book for beginners. It was very well explained and terms were defined as well. I would recommend it for anyone looking for a basic but thorough background that is also a short book.
