Did you know the last fight you had with your spouse began long before you even met?
Are you tired of falling into frustrating relational patterns in your marriage? Do you and your spouse fight about the same things again and again?
Relationship experts Milan and Kay Yerkovich explain why the ways you and your spouse relate to each other go back to before you even met. Drawing on the powerful tool of attachment theory, Milan and Kay explore how your childhood created an “intimacy imprint” that affects your marriage today. Their stories and practical ideas help you:
* identify your personal love style * understand how your early life impacts you and your spouse * break free from painful patterns that keep you stuck * find healing for the source of conflict, not just the symptoms * create the close, nourishing relationship you dream about
This new edition expands the "Duets that Damage" section. The authors explore five additional core patterns and offer diagrams showing how each Love Style combination interacts. Content throughout the book is also updated with new insights that have evolved since the book was originally published. New information on the origins of "triggers," as well as charts, tools, and discussion starters have been added.
