BOOK OF THE
Do I Have To Give Up Me To Love You?
Being in love with your partner feels wonderful! But when conflict arises, unfortunately the euphoria soon disappears. Your mate may not be in the mood to talk when you are. Maybe you argue about sex or spending money. These things are very upsetting! Now, instead of love, you feel anger, disappointment, or hurt.
Here, in this widely acclaimed best seller, couples can learn how to work through conflict in ways that create more love and intimacy, not less. The paths through conflict are illustrated in chart form and then explained in detail. Other chapters relate the fears and false beliefs that act as obstacles to loving feelings. In addition, a whole section of exercises is provided for couples to explore together their feelings and beliefs about values, power struggles, sexual expectations, etc.
Recommended highly my marriage therapists and religious groups across the country, this book has become a classic text for couples who want the richness and depth of lifetime love relationships
