Why doesn¿t anyone teach us these things the first time around?
Let¿s be honest, how many of us ¿get lucky¿ and choose our soulmate in our teens or twenties when we barely even know ourselves? We are certainly not raised perfectly and perhaps we are not even mature enough to truly understand ourselves until mid-life. So it is no surprise that even though our intimate relationships are the most important aspect in our lives - there seems to be an epidemic of unhappiness out there. Well, someone has finally put into words an insightful lesson on relationships that cuts right to the heart of the issue. The Moseley¿s style and words will help you see yourself in ways that will make you uncomfortable (nope¿ that¿s not strong enough) they completely skip the ¿bunny slope¿ and take you right to the top of the mountain where you will face your fears head on!!! This book will definitely spark your growth process!!! After reading this book, my girlfriend and I were both so moved by it that we can't stop talking about it. Together, we have been actively promoting it to our family and friends. This book helped us look inside ourselves just at a time when we were afraid to make a lifelong commitment to each other (second marriages for each of us). We have re-read this book and highlighted passages especially important to each of us (almost every page is now a mess). It became so obvious after reading this book that we were in there on almost every page - we have laughed and cried about that! We even got a little silly and penciled in our own names in places where a passage felt so applicable that we 'personalized¿ it. If you can read this book with an open mind and acceptance of your own ¿humanness' ¿ you will be empowered and capable of incredible depth in your relationships. You just have to read this book¿. You owe it to yourself!

Basic Communication Lessons
I was hoping the book was for older adults getting married for the second time after a long time of being divorced or widowed. I wanted the book to address issues about how difficult it is to share a life after you've been independent for so many years. How one finds oneself comparing this mate to that mate and the unfairness of bringing baggage from the first marriage into the second, and how to avoid it. first marriages that may have lasted 40 yrs, or people who have been on their own for 25 yrs or more. Instead the book deals with basic communicatin skills between two people and bringing stepchildren into the communal home. What if the stepchildren are already grown and have been accustomed to having their father or mother all to themselves for many years and suddenly the parent remarries? How does the new mate fit in? etc. I was disappointed in the book. It's geared toward younger people's second marriages.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
