Great book and not what you expect. Shared values not shared insecurities will keep lovers together through the tough times and help you grow up and together......

Some interesting and controversial ideas here. However, it did paint marriage as a very bland experience -- so practical it seemed pointless to even be married at all. For example, the concept of spending quality time together or having a quality chat for ten minutes per day being enough. Yes, that is a low-maintenance marriage. It also seems a joyless one. This book had some good ideas but failed to connect with me on a personal level.

Some good takeaways. An interesting approach to thinking about relationships. I am not sure how easy it will be to put any of it into practice as there is a lot of relating present situations back to familiar feelings you had in childhood. It seems a little impractical to do that by yourself without the help of a therapist.

I guess this has some helpful relationship advice... I'm not enamored by it though. The writing is not the best, it is often repetitive in tone. Overall, I'm glad I read this.
