Another wonderful book from Dr. Glasser. This book applies Choice Theory directly to marriage and gives some good insight into utilizing Choice Theory in daily marital life as well as in some common sticky situations that arise in even the best relationships. This book separated many of the key elements into lessons with a question at the end that you can ask of yourself or your spouse. I found this helpful as it is a question you can ask yourself each day as a reminder and a mindfulness exercis...more

This book was particularly interesting because it applied the choice theory strictly to married couples situations. It is important that we remember that when we apply choice theory to our relationships it allows us to be able to feel freedom which is one of the five needs in life. By recognizing these factors we are able to find ways to improve our lives. A great read and it was quick to work through and it brought up many great topics to be discussed with any partner!
Yes - I know, another marriage book! Short book. Interesting concepts like how external control can damage a marriage. They describe seven deadly habits replacing them with seven supportive habits like support, encourage, listen, accept, trust. We choose our behavior and understanding each other's quality worlds was interesting. One side note, there are real couple stories/examples throughout the book and I thought a few were too explicit.

اكثر شي اعجبني بالكتاب شغلتين، 1- حلو ان كل واحد من الزوجين ما يتدخل في الثاني ويسيطر عليه لان لو سيطر احد الطرفين عالثاني ماراح يكون فيه راحه 2- لو صار مشكله بين الزوجين بدال ما كل احد يلوم الثاني يحاول كل واحد يصلح اخطائه ويعيش حياته وينبسط ولا يتنكد ولا ينتظر الطرف الثاني يتغير لانه راح يتعب لو صار كذا

الكتاب حلو وخفيف يصلح رفيق للسياره او غرف الانتظار
Quick read, is helpful (limited) in a practical way in giving help to people who need help in getting along and learning how to negotiate through conflict.
