101 RELATIONSHIP MYTHS How to Stop Them From Sabotaging Your Happiness Tim Ray
In this entertaining and thought-provoking book, Tim presents a revolutionary new way of looking at our relationships and why they can be so problematic - and then he goes on to offer some refreshing, new advice as to what we can do about it.
The book's basic premise is that most of us believe in a wide range of myths about men and women, love and relationships that we have never questioned. It is our unquestioned belief in these myths that confuses us and makes us unhappy in our relationships. To help readers understand the power of myths in our lives, Tim identifies some of our most common 'relationship myths'. And then he shows us how we can free ourselves from them. The result is much greater clarity, joy and love in our relationships.
Some of the myths Tim unveils are:
· A relationship can only work if you compromise · I need a partner to be happy · My happiness is dependent on my partner · If you love me, you'll do what I want · I'm more selfish than my partner if I don't do what my partner wants · I know what is best for my partner · It's better to be in a relationship than to be single · Strong sexual attraction means we're a good match
“Every time you believe that reality should be different than it is right now, you suffer. It's actually that simple." – Tim Ray
When it comes to relationships, there are self-help books all around the world, but I've never read anyone who has done so much research into 'what happens to the hero and heroine after they finally get each other' as Tim Ray — Jane Aamund – Denmark's leading woman writer and author of countless bestselling books An entertaining and courageous book that shows us how we can experience more happiness in our relationships by questioning the traditional way of doing things. I warmly recommend this book to everyone who's interested in personal development — Joan Ørting – Denmark's leading sexologist, couples therapist, TV host, and best-selling author

DO YOURSELF A FAVOR: LOVE YOUR WIFE! A Guide to Marital Intimacy James A. Schaller
An enduring and intimate relationship is possible when a man and a woman retain their separate and distinct identities, and relate to each other as equals and with total honesty.
This is some of the insight that, early in his career as a gynecologist, Dr. Jim Schaller gained when he realized that most wives were unhappy, or at least disappointed in their marriage—while most husbands needed to get in touch with buried feelings, especially in running the gauntlet from boyhood to manhood.
He saw that male control remains the primary reason for women's frustration, depression and anger, and that equality and honesty—based on loving kindness, warmth, attention, thoughtfulness, tenderness, and caring—leads to respect, trust, and true companionship ... that is, what couples desire most in their relationship.
