John Bradshaw quotes an Irish poet who wrote, "Their relationship consisted in discussing if it existed." This line underscores a frustrating state of confusion in current-day discussions concerning relationships. A plethora of books and CDs tell us how to get love "right" by simply learning the right techniques, or learning how to communicate in inter-planetary languages. Often the underlying assumption is that a significant relationship is a "problem" to be solved, rather than a drama and mystery to be lived.
In this powerful series, Bradshaw points to clinical studies that offer extensive research on the factors that constitute well-functioning relationships, as well as factors that when chronically present lead to misery, separation and divorce. Earth people understand that there are problems in all relationships, some of which can be solved and others that cannot. Bradshaw outlines 10 such problems faced in virtually all relationships, shows us how to recognize them, and offers practical guidelines on how they might be resolved.
Finally, Bradshaw offers his belief that, "In the evening of life, we will be judged by love alone." This belief can help us to face these relationship challenges courageously and with a sense of hope.
