Relationships: not one of them is perfect. In fact, probably every one of them is far from perfect. Couples go into a relationship thinking that their own is going to be different—that all the problems besetting other people will not affect them. For Couples Only explains why almost no couple can escape the crises that inevitably arise. Dr. Ables, a marriage counselor for twenty-five years, cuts away all the romanticism and gets right to the heart of the problem. People are different from one another, and most important of all, their past experiences are different. For Couples Only examines and emphasizes how feelings and expectations formed years ago come back to haunt the present relationship, and how couples tend to act with their mates as they did with their parents. Dr. Ables looks at relationships from the first joy of romantic love to their eventual breakdowns.
For Couples Only will help individuals involved in a relationship or about to become involved take a realistic look at themselves and their partners, and begin the process of creating a healthier, more enjoyable life together.
