We all wish for true love. And those who have found it hope that it will last a lifetime. Yet, the high separation and divorce rates show that all too often, love disappears and the relationship breaks up. But couples can do something about it: Like a plant, love needs to be nurtured. This means getting involved in the relationship –fully and completely engaging with the other person. In psychology, this is called commitment and the key to a lasting partnership. With the help of many exercises and concrete practical tips, the couples therapist and partnership researcher Guy Bodenmann shows how couples can strengthen their commitment in order to also survive times of crises – such as job stress or infidelity – in a good way and grow old together. This is a book that helps people sustain love and find their way to a happy relationship.
