    A must read for every couple!!!

    Happy Together brought me to a place of peace. I finally understand what is causing the tension in my relationship and how to address the issue. The use of real examples is what sets this book apart from my other relationship reads, making issues easy to relate to and solutions easy to translate into my every day life.
