Description

What really makes a relationship work? How can we stay interested in our partner for ever? How can we be happier in our marriage?

Doctors John and Julie Gottman have spent over three decades studying the habits of 3000 couples. Within 10 minutes of meeting a couple, they can predict who will stay happily together or who will split up, with 94% accuracy. Based on their findings on the ingredients to a happy, lasting love life, they have now created an easy series of eight dates, spanning:

- commitment & trust
- conflict resolution
- intimacy & sex
- fun & adventure
- work & money
- family values
- growth & spirituality
- goals & aspirations

Eight Dates draws on rigorous scientific and psychological research about how we fall in love using case studies of real-life couples whose relationships have improved after committing time to each other and following the dates. Full of innovative exercises and conversation starters to explore ways to deepen each aspect of the relationship, Eight Dates is an essential resource that makes a relationship fulfilling.

'Can a marriage really be understood? Yes it can. Gottman shows us how' Malcolm Gladwell, author of Blink
