If you want to repair your marriage or build an enduring, fulfilling relationship, step away from the therapist, put down the magazine, and pick up this book.
Laura Doyle's marriage was in trouble. After five years, her husband had become distant and seemed checked out of their relationship, preferring watching TV to making love. There were frequent fights that ended with tense silences. Marriage counseling made their problems worse: each session seemed to reinforce the feeling that she and her husband were just too far apart.
Desperate to avoid divorcing the man she loved, Laura tried something different: she started talking to happily married women, some for more than 15 years. What she discovered shocked her.
Everything she had heard in marriage counseling was wrong. Laura realized there are basic truths that can help women maintain loving, intimate marriages, such as:
The happiness of your relationship is up to you! What men want most of all is to be treated with respect. Treat your man with respect (even if you aren't feeling it), and he will treat you with love and care. Your man wants to know he has your trust. Give it to him, and he'll realize you are special . . . because you will be!
After seeing her own marriage transform, Laura set out to help other women do the same. In First, Kill All the Marriage Counselors, you'll learn Laura's "Six Intimacy Skills," which have been used by over 150,000 women who have turned their unhappy marriages into blissful unions.
First, Kill All the Marriage Counselors will put you on the path to having the sweet, satisfying marriage you want with the man you love!
