Couples can make love last, says psychotherapist and clinical social worker Marcia Naomi Berger. They just need to learn how. Her prescription is deceptively simple: have an interruption-free 30-minute or shorter, gentle conversation each week, and follow an agenda that includes the kind of appreciation and planning for fun that foster intimacy and pave the way for collaborative conflict resolution. With this book, you'll learn how to communicate and connect with your spouse each week effectively, and for a lifetime, with practical tips to walk you through the four parts of a marriage meeting: expressing appreciation, coordinating chores, planning for good times, and resolving problems.
Inspiring real-life stories demonstrate how transformative these meetings can be. The communication techniques Berger has gleaned from helping hundreds of couples will guide you toward a more vibrant, lasting love.
