Lilian Gafni guides couples step by step on how to take control of their relationship and how to create the marriage they hoped it would be. She shows how to eliminate false expectations, misconceptions and illusions about marriage. Filled with inspirational exercises, genealogical charts, and including a marriage contract a couple can draft on their own as a commitment to their love for each other. This companion book teaches couples how to avoid trouble spots, to rekindle love and sexual passion in the marriage, and to set a foundation for trust between the partners. Gafni also provides lists of tips for avoiding miscommunication for each spouse, stressing the importance of compassionate interaction between partners. As each partner learns how to rise above conflicts they become self-actualized and able to reach goals within their marriage.
In Living a Blissful Marriage, the partners learn communication techniques through visualization exercises and introspection into their partner's needs. As they begin to master communication skills, each one becomes attuned to their partner's plea for their voice to be heard. For example,if a partner's complaint is, "We don't spend enough time together," the other partner will understand the request and reply in kind, "If I understand you correctly, you feel lonely and would like more time with me. If you like, we can make time each morning by having coffee in bed, okay?" These little attentive gestures go a long way in keeping the partners close in each other thought and affection. It is the one thousand acts of kindness that fuels love and passion in marriage.
