I love this book. It is probably one of my all time favorites. Do you ever think about why you and your spouse fight? I mean not just why you fight, but WHY you fight? Probably not. You’re probably just like everyone else and look at the issue at hand. But have you ever realized that most arguments have very little to do with the actual issue at hand? It’s actually much deeper. We all have reactive triggers that have been formed long before our spouses came along, and this book does a wonderful job of opening your eyes to those issues and teaching you ways to communicate them to your spouse. It will teach you ways of using your conflicts to build intimacy. Imagine if every argument you had in marriage could actually promote intimacy instead of building barriers. This book is an absolute game changer and I you are absolutely going to love it!
