The Couple’s Review guides you through a process that is like a couples’ retreat or workshop. Unlike a typical one, however, the activities presented in the book are done in private and in the manner and setting of the couple’s choosing. The intermediary design of the activities performs the role of a mediator by facilitating a non-confrontational, fair, and accurate communication exchange.
The book’s emphasis is on the activities and not on reading long descriptions of psychological concepts. This makes it possible for you to do your own “private” couple’s retreat or workshop over a weekend or several evenings.
If you really want to make it a special event, conduct the activity during a vacation or weekend getaway at a resort! Even going to a hotel near your home would be good. Go through the process during the first 1-3 days and then enjoy yourselves the rest of the time. Getting out of your normal routine and environment might create the conditions you need for a breakthrough!
The Couple’s Review enables partners to freely share their thoughts on any topic without fear of confidentiality issues. It also allows a couple to preserve their loyalty to each other. Most importantly, it requires that only those who are the best qualified to solve their relationship issues are present — the couple themselves.
This technique is equally useful whether a couple is married, engaged, going steady, or dating. It is also useful for verifying your compatibility “before” you get married or engaged.
This might sound funny, but only you and your partner have been present every minute of your lives and relationship. Therefore, no one on earth is better qualified to develop ways to improve your relationship than the two of you. All the answers to every issue that you have personally and as a couple are within each of you. This book does not provide the answers. It only provides the tools for you to discover them yourselves.
