Publisher's Summary

“With marriage down and divorce up, it’s tough to get and stay married these days. But therapist Greg Baer says you can have a happy marriage by learning to love your partner unconditionally...practicing Real Love.” (Chicago Tribune)
Why do more than half of all marriages end in divorce? And why is there so much unhappiness in the marriages that survive? Greg Baer offers the solutions for a long-lasting marriage in his anticipated follow-up to Real Love: The Truth About Finding Unconditional Love and Fulfilling Relationships.
No matter how many wounds have been inflicted in a marriage, Greg Baer believes that they can be healed, giving both partners the sense of fulfillment and joy they’ve always wanted. With practical anecdotes and exercises throughout, Baer shows you:

Why our spouses are not the root cause of how we feel and behave
The truth about why we get angry with our spouses and argue with them
How to eliminate - not just manage - anger and conflict
How to identify what we need to change about ourselves
How you and your partner can both get what you want out of the marriage
How you can break the cycles of expectation and disappointment
How to prevent divorce, and how to know when it’s the right option
There are no quick solutions to fixing a marriage. With Greg Baer as your guide, you can begin to heal the wounds of the past and cultivate the lifelong commitment to stay with your partner while learning how to unconditionally love him or her.
“With illustrations from real couples, guidelines for better communication, and exercises for the reader, Baer goes at the problem of finding and maintaining Real Love from all angles.” (Ladies’ Home Journal)

A Most Important Book

What made the experience of listening to Real Love in Marriage the most enjoyable?

It was like sitting with Greg and having a conversation. With him reading it, I could hear the passion and love that he has for sharing this most important information about the need for Real Love to have a successful marriage....or life for that matter.

What other book might you compare Real Love in Marriage to and why?

The first book Greg wrote is 'Real Love' and it was THE MOST IMPORTANT book I've ever read. Real Love in Marriage is the same information except focused on marriage and how Real Love is necessary in order to have a happy and successful marriage.

What about Greg Baer’s performance did you like?

His passion and love. I truly believe Greg lives his talk of unconditional Love and it's his passion to share this powerful and profound information about the most important concept of our human experience, LOVE. It seems to be the most important word in our human language and yet the least understood. Greg is changing that by his profound and yet simple examples of what Love is and what it isn't.

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

Everybody has the freedom of choice and nobody has the right to have expectations of others because when we do, we take away the freedom of choice. Expectations has been the root of all my anger, disappointment, righteousness, resentment and frustration. Just this one awareness has brought tremendous peace into my life.

Any additional comments?

Real Love in Marriage is a continuation of the book Real Love. Even if you are not in a marriage, you are involved in relationships of some kind; friendship, family, co-workers. Greg breaks down the communication and shows both sides; the reaction from imitation love and the response from Real Love. It's a 'how to' book that we were never taught. I was never taught anything about Love, until I read Real Love, and from this new view that I now have, I can see most other people have not been taught anything about Real Love either. LOVE is the only thing that can heal our planet and Greg's books provide the transition from the imitation love we were taught to the REAL LOVE that we were meant to be.

A brilliant marriage handbook that should be required reading for anyone considering for entering marriage!

My 22-year-old son recommended your book, Real Love, to me after listening to it in preparation for his wedding. But when I saw, Real Love In Marriage, I opted to read that one first. If only I knew about this book 23 years ago, before I married his father.

My second husband and I have been married 3 1/2 years, and I never imagined it could be any harder than it was the first time around! But it is! I was single for about eight years and hoped I would find love again. Now that I have, I've often wondered how anyone can find "real" love, much less stay married!

Enter, Real Love In Marriage. This book has literally been life altering for me! It has been an excruciating, yet necessary, exercise in self examination. And, it has opened my eyes not only to my self-defeating habits, but to the possibility, even high likelihood, of having real love, joy and happiness in my life!

Thank you, thank you, a thousand times, thank you!!
