In the movies, a couple meet and they just know that each has found that one special person. Marriage, children and
eternal bliss are just a heart-beat away. Unfortunately in the real world, it is much harder to work out if a relationship has a future or not. Most people do not have these blinding flashes or if they've had them in the past, have been badly let down and no longer trust their own judgement. If this sounds familiar and you're not sure if your relationship is serious or you're just wasting your time, this book is for you.
Marital therapist Andrew G Marshall draws on extensive research and
twenty-five years' experience of working with couples to help you
understand what is going on beneath the surface. He explains:
- How to tell if your partner is truly into you.
- How to know if you want to spend the rest of your life with this person.
- The natural rhythm of relationships and how both
jumping in too soon or spending too long on hold can ruin a budding
- How to stop listening to other people and listen to your heart.
- How to talk productively about your future.
