Radical Marriage: Your Relationship as Your Greatest Adventure
The first step to a Radical Marriage is making a ‘radical commitment’ – meaning both partners decide they will not leave the relationship, that there is no escape clause. The authors focus most on Radical Communication, then conclude with Radical Intimacy, Radical Romance, Radical Sex, and Radical Living. They caution that some of their suggestions will seem scary, because we are not used to being perfectly open with someone else, but that the rewards are infinite.
This book compiles a lot of what has been found about good communication and good relationships from other sources, but it is presented in a fresh way, with a coherent goal. The authors’ marriage coaching experiences, anecdotes and examples make the ideas clear and accessible, and short chapters are easy to read and understand, with concrete actions to take for immediate improvement. They are careful to emphasize that each member of the partnership can and should feel fulfilled, with needs met, and acknowledge that sometimes it is hard to put new changes into practice. They are very encouraging and supportive, as well as realistic; but they refuse to allow anyone to settle for less than the best relationship. This book gives readers the tools to achieve it.
