One of the most challenging issues today for people is how to have a long, sustained, happy, and fulfilling relationship between two equal partners. Without this the trappings of wealth, success, and fame are mere consolation prizes. Yet, the authorsMoreOne of the most challenging issues today for people is how to have a long, sustained, happy, and fulfilling relationship between two equal partners. Without this the trappings of wealth, success, and fame are mere consolation prizes. Yet, the authors argue, neither religion, New Age thinking, nor psychological counseling adequately prepare us for intimacy. The Rosenthals present a vision of intimacy as a path to self-knowledge and love without spiritual cliches or psychological jargon. They address the difficulty of intimacy in a practical manner, showing couples how to go through confusion, resentment, guilt, fear, and pain, yet emerge richer for it. The book emphasizes how to become more skillful in the nuance of daily living and the art of loving. It teaches how to communicate without defensiveness, citing examples from the authors own marriage and the lives of other couples, in which the conflicts of daily life are used to bring a greater understanding and harmony.
