“[An] easy-to-understand handbook for creating and maintaining a “Partnership Marriage.” Lightened by a cartoon couple’s relationship conversations and whimsical descriptions of personality types (e.g., the Turtle and the Hailstorm), the book advocates a relationship in which each member helps the other recapitulate and recover from the emotional wounds of childhood…Hendrix and Hunt’s focus on gentleness, reflective listening, and removing negativity forms a decidedly common-sense approach to marriage. Base this in a clear and methodical approach, and you’ve got a workable manual for couples committed to doing a better job living a modern married life—for their own sake and their partner’s.”
“This book ought to be in every bride and groom's gift basket. Not only have Hendrix and Hunt created a delightful and easy-to-read guide to what every marriage needs, but they have done it by also revealing their own personal struggles (with their very happy ending) to the reader. We absolutely loved the cartoons. The book is the ideal combination of useful advice and very specific tips, and a real understanding of the huge benefits a new couple will gain from a lasting, intimate relationship. Here's how to make that happen!”
—John & Julie Gottman, authors of And Baby Makes Three
"I am thrilled that the greatest hits of what Harville and Helen have taught for decades are being distilled into one book. They are true masterful teachers and have offered clear, humorous, revelatory knowledge. Beyond supporting an intimate marriage, the application of these tools yields benefits throughout every relationship in your life."
“This is an enormously useful, helpful, and effective book (and workbook) for married couples, but really for relationships in general. With enormous clarity and insight, Harville and Helen walk us through the major traps of relationships, and specific techniques and exercises to overcome them, making your relationships deeper, stronger, more loving, and more rewarding—all around! Highly recommended for any relationship.”
—Ken Wilber, author of The Integral Vision

First, I must confess that Harvelle was a faculty member of mine who taught me pastoral counseling many, many years ago when I attended seminary at Perkins School of Theology at SMU. This makes me bias toward in his and Helen's theoretical perspective and their books. It is been pleasure to teach Intro to Family Relations for more than 20 years at the University of Arkansas and prior to that the University of Wyoming. I have used Hendrix's material in the creation of numerous lectures over the years, especially Getting All the Love You Want.
Everyone of the ten points that this book makes is based on sound research conducted over the last 30 years on marriage and family and published in the leading scholarly journals. However, this research is hidden in this book because it is directed at couples who are seeking to improve their relationships and not to get an advanced degree in family therapy.
I want to recommend this book to everyone because we know that understanding these 10 issues can, not only enrich a marriage, but help to revitalize a committed relationships.
Buy it and read it as a couple and do the suggested "activities." You will be stunned by what this book and the little amount of time focusing your your marriage can do for you and your relationship. Go for it! You have nothing to lose and everything to gain from experiencing the process of reading this book.
