Wellness entrepreneur Chrisanna Northrup teamed with two of America‚top sociologists, Yale Ph.D. Pepper Schwartz and Harvard Ph.D. James Witte, to design a unique interactive survey that would draw feedback from around the world. What has resulted is the clearest picture yet of how well couples are communicating, romancing each other, satisfying each other in the bedroom, sharing financial responsibilities, and staying faithful ‚ or not. Since the Normal Bar survey methodology sorts for age and gender, racial and geographic differences and sexual preferences, the authors are able to reveal , for example, what happens to passion as we grow older, which gender wants what when it comes to sex, the factors that spur marital combat, how kids figure in, how being gay or bisexual turns out to be both different and the same, and ‚regardless of background — the tiny habits that drive partners absolutely batty.
This book offers readers an array of prescriptive tools that will help them establish a ‚Äúnew normal.‚Äù Mindful of what keeps couples stuck in ruts, the book‚Äôs authors suggest practical and life-changing ways to break cycles of disappointment and frustration.

Dr. Johnson explains that romantic love is an attachment bond, just like that between mother and child, and shows us how to develop our “love sense” — our ability to develop long-lasting relationships.

Love Sense covers the three stages of a relationship and how to best weather them; the intelligence of emotions and the logic of love; the physical and psychological benefits of secure love; and much more.

Men are right. The ‚relationship talk‚ does not help. Dr. Patricia Love‚ and Dr. Steven Stosny‚ How to Improve Your Marriage Without Talking About It reveals the stunning truth about marital happiness:
‚ Love is not about better communication. It’s about connection.
‚Ä¢ You’ll never get a closer relationship with your man by talking to him like you talk to one of your girlfriends.
‚Ä¢ Male emotions are like women’s sexuality: you can’t be too direct too quickly.
‚Ä¢ There are four ways to connect with a man:touch, activity, sex, routines.
‚Ä¢ Men want closer marriages just as much as women do,but not if they have to act like a woman.
‚Ä¢ Talking makes women move closer; it makes men move away.
‚Ä¢ The secret of the silent male is this: his wife supplies the meaning in his life.
‚Ä¢ The stunning truth about love is that talking doesn’t help.
Drs. Patricia Love and Steven Stosny have studied this all-too-familiar dynamic between men and women and have reached a truly shocking conclusion. Even with the best of intentions, talking about your relationship doesn’t bring you together, and it will eventually drive you apart.
The reason for this is that underneath most couples’ fights, there is a biological difference at work. A woman’s vulnerability to fear and anxiety makes her draw closer, while a man’s subtle sensitivity to shame makes him pull away in response. This is why so many married couples fall into the archetypal roles of nagging wife/stonewalling husband, and why improving a marriage can’t happen through words.
How to Improve Your Marriage Without Talking About It teaches couples how to get closer in ways that don’t require ‚Äútrying to turn a man into a woman.‚ Rich in stories of couples who have turned their marriages around, and full of practical advice about the behaviors that make and break marriages, this essential guide will help couples find love beyond words.
