Overview

The ultimate relationship repair from the bestselling author of Boys Will Put You on a Pedestal (So They Can Look Up Your Skirt) and a psychologist with decades of experience

Every committed relationship goes through rough patches. What’s the difference between those that move forward and those that disintegrate? Knowledge, effort and a desire to strengthen the bond. In Actually, It Is Your Parents’ Fault, Philip Van Munching and Bernie Katz cut through unhelpful self-help trends to lead readers to self-knowledge and to show how:

—Even your earliest childhood experiences dictate who you fall for

—The unconscious aspects of your personality both attract and repel your partners (often at the same time)

—Your history indicates how you’ll fight, how well (or poorly) you’ll communicate, and how you’ll deal with tough times

—To use insight into yourself to fix your relationship

With humor and sound advice, Van Munching and Katz can help any reader on the road to a happier romance or marriage.
