It’s not so much the things we don’t know about relationships that can hurt us but rather the things we think we know. These unfounded beliefs or “myths” permeate our culture and take root in our minds, preventing many couples from doing the work required to build a solid, lasting relationship. This book not only shows how myths can do great damage to a relationship but demonstrates how to disengage from them and replace inaccurate views with the kind of clarity that healthy relationships require. It offers practical guidance that can turn a breakdown into a breakthrough!
Each chapter presents an alternative to the myth and offers tools and suggestions for disproving harmful assumptions and instead, adopting practices and skills that will keep your relationship thriving. Happily Ever After and 39 Other Myths about Love contains easily absorbed nuggets of wisdom and entertaining anecdotes, stories, and vignettes that illustrate the essential messages contained in each chapter. After reading this book, couples will find new ways to strengthen and heal their relationships and move toward actualization of the type of love they thought only occurred in fairy tales!
