He explains why and how self-validation wanting your partner but not needing them to validate you is necessary if we want to grow as individuals and couples. Mar 08, Sara rated it it was amazing.

Recommended to me by a friend whose marriage had a rough patch a few years ago and she attributes much of their success working through it to this book.
Instead, it hits the nail on head showing you exactly what got you to do in a crisis, and what needs to happen for things to passionxte back to normal - or, often, better than normal.
Passionate Marriage | W. W. Norton & Company
The first two chapters are quite good abouts differentiation and its importance in relationship. As far as writing style goes, this book pretty much sucks.
Written inhe feels slightly dated in tone, but still progressive conceptually. Paperbackpages. He's just describing neurology I read this book at a time of painful difficulty - would the much-cherished marriage I'd been in many years actually come to an end unthinkable or would we, or I, or him, find a way to get to the bottom of what "went wrong" as we then thought, and from there, reinvent?
This greatly impressed as most book of this nature doesn't talk honestly about the subject. Schnarch wholly shifted my ,arriage, not just on relationship but of everything.

I have gotten so much use out of this book, I'd like to say I took up temporary residence in the crucible for a few months. I stopped reading shortly after that as the quality of the book and the extent of the davidd ego threatened to negate anything useful he had to say in the beginning. Again, another way in which the book could have used revising! Thank God Passionate Marriage came into our hands when it did.
In all of the couples were partners who came from dysfunctional families of origins. But to face yourself and ask "do I really feel this way or is x holding scharch back? First, be wholly yourself.
