It also has a ton of questions that should be asked before getting married. Some questions are "no brainers" but there were lots of questions which I had not even thought of. Every couple thinking of marriage or even if you are already married should at least look at the questions portion of the book in order to open the lines of communication or maybe expand them. I actually have been a fan of Robin Smith's after first seeing her on the Oprah show and then also listen to her on the Oprah channel on XM Radio.
I purchased the book before actually getting engaged and found it just as enlightening.
I also think that it helped make the conversation easier with my fiance as we talked about the questions and he didnt see it as an attack from me for answers. My final thought about the book is that I plan on passing it on to a good friend in the hopes she can use it in her relationship as well.
Read full review. I bought this book after a very close friend recommended it and loaned me her copy.
I found it of such value that I decided to buy a copy for myself so I could return her copy in a timely manner and bought a second copy at the same time for my intended so she would have one for her own. Because the author does an excellent job in addressing the importance of honest effective communication prior to -- and during -- marriage, and then provides easy-to-follow exercises that allow the reader to determine their true priorities regarding their ideal spouse and their expectations for marriage life-style, relationships with relatives, children, sex and so on. It also contains material that is relevant for people who are already married, and exercises and work sheets for them as well.
The re are probably many other books on the market that are similar to this one, but this one seems cover everything that needs to be covered, and does so in concise well-organized style. With this book in my library to read, use, act on, and discuss with my intended, I don't feel the need to buy other books on the subject.
Highest recommendation! I was ensconced in a tumultuous relationship and the friend felt I could benefit from the 'read". I am skeptical of 'self help' marriages because they are great potboilers and unworthy of my time. I was happily surprised however! It bullet points just about every problem area a couple could encounter in a relationship and does so in a concise, understandable and relevant manner. Further, it offers practical analysis, solutions and workarounds. The book flows and the concepts are presented so The can understand and use them.
Finally, the questions at the back of the book are wonderful, searching and the perfect conclusion to one of the best relationship books I have ever read. I would recommend "Lies" to any person in a relationship, whether they just met, are engaged, just married, married a long time, separated or even divorced. If two people want to find solutions to relationship issues and move forward toward happiness, this is your bible for about so. I originally bought this book with my daughter and her fiance in mind.
I have heard Dr. Robin Smith on Oprah many times, and felt she communicated truths in a refreshing and matter of fact way. I wanted to read the book myself first, truth had 2 failed marriages. Whatever kind of relationship or at whatever level or stage, one can gain a lot of insight into themselves and the motivations behind their behavior, as well as their partners, with practical easy to follow steps to change and bring understanding or healing, or whatever is needed!
Besides Dr. Smith sharing stories from her practice, she gives short-to-the-point questionaires throughout to encourage communication on vital topics for couples to go through.
I think anyo ne in any kind of relationship--good friends--family members--whateverif you want your relationship to be based on TRUTH and mutual love without hidden agendas, if you want to truly grow with another person and be real--get this book and devour it and go through the exercises with your ificant other and look at yourselves with eyes wide open. This book will change your life--if you let it.
When I saw Dr. Robin on Oprah she made sense of my life in how I always lost myself in romantic relationships and how as a society it is almost expected and has been for centuries. This book helped me to target my strengths as well as weaknesses in romantic relationships and work to change my self defeating behaviors. As far as self help relationship books go this is top of the line with actual scenarios and homework to do.
The questions really drive home the importance of communication. What Dr. Robin effectively communicates in this book is the pressures of society for women to conform to this mold that is outdated. This is a must read for those engaged couples as well as those considering marriage. This b ook is a champion to raise womens awareness of the possible traps we can fall into in the dating world. Thank you Dr. Robin for writing a book that really hits home to thousands maybe millions of women.
