Read an Excerpt


At the beginning of a relationship, do you trust your new partner unless there is something specific to make you do otherwise, or do you withhold your trust until he or she has earned it?

If you could be twice as passionately in love with your partner as you are now, would you want to be? What about 10 times as in love? At what point is love so strong it is unhealthy?

How promiscuous would you be if you knew your mate would be as faithful as you wished and, without resentment, give you any sexual freedoms you asked for?
