Love and marriage are two of the greatest gifts life has to offer, yet too many marriages fail because couples don’t fully understand the five stages of relationships. Because most of us have had hurtful experiences in past relationships, often going back to childhood, we develop an inaccurate love map that causes us to get off track when the stresses of life increase.
For more than 40 years, Jed Diamond has been helping couples repair even the most damaged relationships and reweave the broken strands of marriage. In The Enlightened Marriage, Dr. Diamond will help you:
• Get through Stage Three—Disillusionment without losing your love.
• Understand that when your partner says, “I love you, but I’m not in love with you anymore,” it is not the end, but the beginning of Stage Four—Real Lasting Love.
• Learn why healing childhood wounds is the greatest gift of love you can give and receive from your partner.
• Recognize and address the mid-life stresses of “manopause,” irritable male syndrome, and male-type depression.
• Follow your calling in Stage Five to make a real difference in the world.
“I’ve known and appreciated Jed’s work for more than forty years. The Enlightened Marriage will be of great help for couples as well as singles who are looking for their soul-mate. It gives you the tools you need to succeed in love. It will be particularly helpful for people over forty, but everyone will learn things they didn’t know about men, women, sex, and love. I highly recommend this book.”
—John Gray, best-selling author of Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus
“If you want more joy in your relationship, Jed Diamond can show you the way. Whether you are married and your relationship needs some help, or you are single and wanting to find real, lasting love, The Enlightened Marriage is the book for you.”
—Chip Conley, New York Times best-selling author of Emotional Equations
“There are some skills you must have, some ways you must be, and some things you must learn or unlearn if you want to have a healthy, fulfilling and loving relationship. Jed Diamond’s work in The Enlightened Marriage covers all of the ‘musts’ and then some. What a blessing!”
—Iyanla Vanzant, author of Trust, and host of Iyanla Fix My Life on OWN
