Background: 

This workbook is about the personal experience of the author’s successful marriage of nearly four decades. It is further enriched by her 20+ years as a couples’ counselor. The book calls for an honest and introspective assessment of your relationship, opens up constructive discussion, and helps you to form a strategy on how to save your relationship or to end it peacefully.

One partner may study the book to trigger changes in the relationship, or both can review it together. You can read it independently or with the help of a counselor. Amelia has witnessed many relationships being restored time and time. Therefore she felt compelled to capture the process in this workbook.
A relationship is a deeply emotional matter. You might experience inner conflict, whether to end the relationship or not. Maybe you feel stuck, or you might struggle to solve conflict or to communicate with your partner. One partner might have been unfaithful. Consequently, matters can no longer continue as they are. In other words, you need to try something different to bring about the change you desire. You might want to assess what needs to change within yourself.

The goal of the book:

This workbook will assist you in designing your strategy to save your love relationship; at precisely that time that you discover that love is not enough. Working through this book can be a last resort.

What the book is about:

The book addresses the common conflict areas in a relationship, including a lack of communication, the power struggle; conflict; the pain, guilt, and shame of cheating and decreasing libido. Throughout their years together, couples change, grow, and develops. It calls for continuous adaptations. It is, therefore, vital to acknowledge each other’s efforts to adapt to these changes. As a result, all this is discussed in the workbook.

To conclude, each chapter ends with a set of questions. Your answers become your customized manual on how to express your love daily.
