A gritty and down-to-earth guide for real-life couples
Conflict is a natural part of any intimate relationship. Yet most couples either avoid it or try to smooth over their differences. This 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 is the purpose of an intimate relationship: to create an atmosphere where both people learn to grow up in their relationship by appreciating each other’s individual needs in a caring and mature way.
Monsters in Love explores commitment, communication, intimacy, and therapy, sharing how these steps are essential for a healthier relationship.
