The ultimate relationship repair from the bestselling author of Boys Will Put You on a Pedestal (So They Can Look Up Your Skirt) and a psychologist with decades of experience
Every committed relationship goes through rough patches. What’s the difference between those that move forward and those that disintegrate? Knowledge, effort and a desire to strengthen the bond. In Actually, It Is Your Parents’ Fault, Philip Van Munching and Bernie Katz cut through unhelpful self-help trends to lead readers to self-knowledge and to show how:
--Even your earliest childhood experiences dictate who you fall for
--The unconscious aspects of your personality both attract and repel your partners (often at the same time)
--Your history indicates how you’ll fight, how well (or poorly) you’ll communicate, and how you’ll deal with tough times
--To use insight into yourself to fix your relationship
With humor and sound advice, Van Munching and Katz can help any reader on the road to a happier romance or marriage.
