Publisher's Summary

Learn Buddhist principles that can help enrich your romantic life, your life in general, and the lives of those around you.

Surely a happy marriage for a normally adjusted couple is a simple matter of give and take - some patience, tolerance, and just trying to be cheerful as often as possible. There is no shortage of books providing relationship advice that can help us with these matters. But Buddhist teachings address more than just surface knowledge and guide us to delve deeper into our psyches.

With an emphasis on self-compassion, Buddhism for Couples explains how to apply Buddhist teachings to your relationships to patch things up, hold things together, and, even on good days, scale the heights of relationship happiness. Written for both men and women, this book tackles the loaded subjects of housework, anger, sex, conflict, and infidelity and introduces Buddhist strategies that can enrich a relationship.

Humorous and informative, Buddhism for Couples provides a fresh approach to living as a couple, persuading us to leave behind stale, habitual ways of relating that don't work.

Critic Reviews

"Romance and spirituality are the two areas where idealistic fantasies are most notoriously dangerous. The antidote is precisely this kind of down-to-earth approach. For Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike, this level-headed, good-hearted book is a useful guide to the clear-eyed sanity that can make a happy relationship possible." (Dean Sluyter, author of Natural Meditation: A Guide to Effortless Meditative Practice)

Great message.

This book has an amazing message. I didn't want the book to end! I am finishing my PhD in communication and I can tell you confidently that I learned so much practical wisdom in this book that is actually rooted in rigorous communication theory. Well done. And thank you!

The only issue I had, and this was minor, was the narrator's voice. A bit saccharine. But definitely worth the listen!

My husband is listening to this book currently, and he loves it as well. Would definitely recommend!
