Overview

Why do more than half of all marriages end in divorce? And why is there somuch unhappiness in the marriages that survive? Finally, Greg Baer offers the solutions for a long-lasting marriage in his much anticipated follow up to Real Love

Marriages fail not because of a lack of commitment, or poor communication, or even the conflicts that occur over money, children, sex, and household duties. Marriages fail because both parties originally came together without enough of the one element—Real Love—most essential to healthy relationships. No matter how many wounds have been inflicted in a marriage, Greg Baer believes that they can be healed, giving both partners the sense of fulfillment and joy they’ve always wanted. With practical anecdotes and exercises throughout, Baer shows you, step by step:
* Why our spouses are not the root cause of how we feel and behave
* The truth about why we get angry with our spouses and argue with them
* How to eliminate—not just manage—anger and conflict
* How to identify what we need to change about ourselves
* Determining how you and your partner can both get what you want out of the marriage
* How you can break the cycles of expectation and disappointment
* How to prevent divorce, and how to know when it’s the right option

There are no quick solutions to fixing a marriage. With Greg Baer as your guide, you can begin to heal the wounds of the past and cultivate the lifelong commitment to stay with your partner while learning how to unconditionally love him or her.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
According to other experts, marriages fail because of lack of commitment, poor communication, or conflicts over money, sex, children, and household responsibilities. According to Real Love author Dr. Greg Baer, romantic unions falter because the partners never risked real, unconditional love. This breakthrough book cuts through rhetoric and addresses the core issues that really doom marriages.

    You'll Never Look at Relationships the Same Way

    Real Love in Marriage is a life changer. My spouse and I bought the audio book only 4 months ago and are still making the Real Love changes suggested by Dr. Baer and seeing an amazing difference within us, our relationship and our family. To me learning about Real Love is learning about how to finally feel the freedom and wholeness we were created to experience and have within ourselves and our relationships. This book is teaching us how to really be loved, loving and happy. Real Love in Marriage is truly a guide to the love and happiness we've searched for all of our lives. I just can't express how grateful I am for this book and for the Real Love community and resources available on the Real Love Website at reallove.com. Real Love is doing more for my marriage than therapy ever did.
