Love is not enough: Making your marriage work
“Love is not enough,” is comprised of six sections, each building on the previous one. The first is an easy to complete and score survey that evaluates the reader’s marriage. When the fissures in the marriage are exposed by the survey, they are related to the four basic ingredients of a successful marriage; intimacy, understanding, communication and change. The successful application of these four basic ingredients is necessary for any successful relationship. Fifteen principles of a successful marriage are demonstrated by different couples in therapy, as they struggle to incorporate one of the four basic ingredients in their relationship. The next section describes common obstacles that frequently impede a successful marriage. This is followed by proven techniques I have utilized in my practice that couples will be able use on their own. The final section is the same survey taken at the beginning, so the reader can evaluate their progress.
