Hold Me Tight: Seven Conversations for a Lifetime of Love - Sue Johnson Why: Because a friend of mine said about it: This book is FABULOUS! The premise is that we are so emotionally caught up in the minutia of our romantic relationships because of our associations and links to our past relationships with our parents. We long for that same closeness, the opportunity to be who we are completely, permission to be needy and longing for affection from our spouse (as we had from our parents). Once we understand this and can allow for it (and can show/speak to our spouse with this understanding) then our marriage will flourish (as well as our relationships in general). Because when it comes down to it, most of our arguments with our spouses is about wanting to feel more loved/cared for/affection/connection. How to share that with one another and receive that love and affection in return is what this book teaches.(less)
