Overview

The Science of Relationships: Answers to Your Questions about Dating Marriage and Family

If you could ask any question about relationships, marriage, family, or parenting, what would you ask? Coincidentally, we've been working on a book (that big title up there) that answers 40 of the most common questions. This book is edited by the creators of ScienceOfRelationships.com, and includes contributions from the authors and many of their colleagues.

The key difference between The Science of Relationships and the other books on relationships out there is that all of the contributors are relationship scientists and teachers at colleges/universities who are true experts on relationships. We take that expertise, add in a little research, and present things in an easy to read format.

Some of the questions answered include:
• What makes someone hot, and others not?
• Are we meant to be monogamous?
• Why do people stay in bad relationships?
• My family and friends don't like my partner. Should I listen to them?
• How long should I wait before sleeping with my partner?
• Will having kids ruin our relationship?
• Will my partner cheat?
• ...and many more...
