"Love starts out as a blessing, even a fluke, but it continues as an achievement"
Everybody wants a happy love life. But not at a cost of being untrue to yourself. Love is a skill and an adventure, and this book is a map.
You'll be pleased to read in these pages that all healthy couples have differences, and that sexual tensions and communication problems are the sparks that can ignite new levels of honesty and closeness. Men and Women are different – but we are all human.
• Love, lust and liking – how to tell the difference
• Growing commitment in small steps
• When to yield and when to make a stand
• Getting through the make-or-break crisis that every marriage has
• The sex-romance alliance – love gets better over the years
• How our children help us grow!
'How Love Works' is full of humour and honesty that makes it a joy to read. It is full of stories about real families in real situations you will recognise immediately. It brings across vividly the powerful magic of love and also the importance of keeping a strong sense of yourself – learning to differ, challenge one another, and laugh about it all, on the road to a fulfilling life.
