"Originally published as Rock the Boat. Newly updated, revised, and expanded"--Title page.
"Conflict is a natural part of any intimate relationship. Yet most couples either avoid it or try to smooth over their differences. This often results in at least one partner compromising their integrity--and stunting their own growth. Monsters in love challenges the idea that conflict between partners is unhealthy or something to avoid. Instead, it encourages both people to stand by what they need and who they are--but to do so with compassion rather than competitiveness or vengefulness. This book is about the reality of committed, intimate relationships, which are designed to inspire both people to grow up. It challenges some common misperceptions about what makes for a successful partnership. It also rocks the boat of psychotherapy, calling out therapists who don't bring their best to their clients. Instead of comforting fantasies or false promises, Monsters in love offers you and your partner a chance to make your relationship--and your lives--much bigger and more emergent"-- Back cover.
