The euphoria experienced when a new relationship begins soon wears off. Anger, disappointment or even hurt may begin to creep into long term relationships. Whether disputes are over money or sex, or simply that neither partner feels like talking at the same time - many couples may start to feel it's time to stop the rot. The aim of this book is to teach couples how to work through conflict and create more love and intimacy, not less. Chapters relate to fears and false beliefs that act as obstacles to loving feelings. In addition a section of exercises is provided for couples to explore together their feelings and beliefs about values, power struggles, and sexual expectations.
