2005 | ISBN: 1400080983 | Author: Mira Kirshenbaum | English | 264 pages | PDF | 35,7 MB From the bestselling author of Too Good to Leave, Too Bad to Stay comes the first marriage guide designed for our fast-paced lives—a revolutionary, streamlined approach for couples who want to make the most of every precious moment together.
Forget Mars and Venus. It’s our time-starved lives that are hurting our relationships. A book that is sure to be much talked about, The Weekend Marriage will transform our understanding of what two people need to have a happy marriage. Mira Kirshenbaum is the first to argue that the real obstacle to a life full of love is not knowing how to handle our relationships when we have so little time.
In this marriage guide for the twenty-first century, Kirshenbaum shares the proven secrets of people who have figured out how to nurture their love no matter what their schedules. (And it’s the busiest partner who determines how much time the couple has for each other.) In our fast-paced society, the intimate, one-on-one connection between spouses is too often neglected in a rush of familial and social obligations; spending precious hours untangling knotty problems is the last thing couples need. Kirshenbaum’s fresh ideas show how most marital conflicts can easily be resolved, and some can even be ignored. She offers four realistic, easy-to-follow recommendations for transforming a time-starved relationship into a thriving and fulfilling marriage.
