101 Things I Wish I Knew When I Got Married : Simple Lessons to Make Love Last
With the divorce rate soaring at a dizzying 60 percent, young couples and experienced partners may lack the skills and understanding to sustain a committed relationship. Linda and Charlie Bloom present 101 nuggets of wisdom that deliver practical guidance and make it clear that regardless of past experience anyone can develop the basic strengths, skills, and capacities needed for a great relationship. Each lesson is presented as a simple, one-sentence thought followed by an explanation using real-life ....
Marriage counselors and first-time authors, the Blooms nearly called their union quits in 1987; their anecdotes reflect the "acceptance, gratitude, and appreciation" that they employed to save it. Some of these honest, candid stories (many from the authors) are more illustrative than others, but most vividly demonstrate that successful relationships require effort. One such story, "Commitment Isn't a Prison," ponders the blessings of loving, supportive spouses. Another, "It's Not What You've Got; It's What You Do with It," describes how Bubba, despite being "short, homely, chubby, and bald," receives his heart's deepest desire in a sweet marriage. Other stories address friends, ultimatums, and irreconcilable viewpoints, all with the intent of heading off problems rather than fixing them. For libraries needing to replace worn-out warm-fuzzies like Cheryl Richardson's Life Makeovers. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
