With around half the marriages today ending in divorce, it's obvious many couples need help but don't know how to fix their problems. I recently had a chance to review a book that gets right to the heart of destructive habits that can wreak havoc on relationships. You're Tearing Us Apart; Twenty Ways We Wreck Our Relationships And Strategies To Repair Them is easy to use, with clearly titled chapters that make it easy to find exactly what you're looking for. I like how each chapter begins with a clear message from one spouse to another about the ways that a habit is tearing the relationship apart.
proves one person can destroy a relationship not two. A broken trust
can be caused by just one person pushing the other too far. It can
happen either by invading privacy, over criticizing, or even a drunken
argument. But the good news is that while one person can
indeed break the relationship apart, one person can also be the one to
fix it. All it takes is three steps:
Step 1: Recognize the part of your behavior that undermines intimacy
Step 2: Replace harmful behaviors with healthy acts of love
Step 3: Repeat steps 1 and 2!
