I PROMISE YOU: Preparing for a Marriage That Will Last a Lifetime

MOM'S NEEDS, DAD'S NEEDS: Keeping Romance Alive Even After the Kids Arrive



MOM'S NEEDS, DAD'S NEEDS: Keeping Romance Alive Even After the Kids Arrive
Willard F. Harley, Jr.
Family & Relationships/Marriage
ISBN: 0800731018

Nationally known marriage expert Dr. Willard F. Harley, Jr. has written a follow-up to his bestseller HIS NEEDS, HER NEEDS. In MOM'S NEEDS, DAD'S NEEDS, he focuses on married life after the children are born. The subtitle, "Keeping Romance Alive Even After the Kids Arrive," sets the theme for this helpful, easy-to-follow guide. Dr. Harley's innovative counseling methods have helped countless couples rekindle the spark in their relationship, and this latest guide is sure to be welcomed by many more who reluctantly believe that romance is a thing of the past.

MOM'S NEEDS, DAD'S NEEDS not only offers very practical, "do-able" advice, but the book's format allows the reader to practice newly learned skills immediately instead of having to wait until the conclusion. With chapters like "And Then There Were Three," "Love Takes Time," "His Work, Her Work," and "Mixed Families, Blended Lives," Dr. Harley details the pitfalls that often sabotage the romantic side of a marriage. In each chapter he provides examples and suggestions that the reader can relate to.

For the many couples who mistakenly think that it's impossible to keep romantic love alive after marriage, and especially after children, this book shows how, with a few adjustments to daily routines, the romance can blossom and bloom for the remainder of their lives. Dr. Harley explains how meeting each other's basic emotional needs for intimate affection, sexual fulfillment, intimate conversation and recreational companionship plays a key role in rekindling the romance.

As in HIS NEEDS, HER NEEDS, understanding the difference in the emotional needs of males and females is key to making relationships work. Any couple who really wants to explore their marriage and learn some simple ways to rekindle the fire in it certainly will appreciate the help presented in MOM'S NEEDS, DAD'S NEEDS.
