It is easy to deal with it.

It caused me to understand that a long lasting and fruitful relationship is conceivable. Tips and bits of knowledge in the book are reasonable, you can apply them in your every day life and dealings with others also.

Relationship game changer!

My fiance and I would not be interested if it weren't for this AUDIObook. We were happy but just couldn't communicate well with each other. This audible highlighted any key things we were and weren't making.

It's time to improve your communication.

I was taught the most important skills one need to incorporate in a relationship. I wasn’t even aware of the term validation before. I’m one of the people who wants acceptance and the discussion on validation has been very helpful.

Jacob Costas nailed this!

The author of this book won't promise you one-day solution as some are eager to hear. It may take time and gradually, you will just realize your marriage is worth saving for like what happened to me.
