The smallest things can create tension. If you have an argument, you might have been taught never to go to bed angry, and he might have been taught to sleep on it because after rest the brain is more rational. Nobody is right or wrong here, but two different approaches can cause further disagreements. That is a small example. When it comes to making extra money or going to the kids' soccer game, having a bigger house or having more time with the kids, sharing and helping each other or dividing chores--these situations can really create a divide between partners. Personality plays a big part too--active adventurer compared to couch potato, nature lover compared to big-city lover. Clashes in personalities can be enough to make a couple miserable after many years of compromising and giving in. Yes, you may go through rough times sometimes, but don't you think you would choose to be with someone because you are happier with that person in your life than you would be on your own? Women have a right to have their needs fulfilled, to receive affection from a man, to receive as much love as they give. Many relationships turn into a struggle for power, but it doesn't have to be that way--for men or women. In this guidebook geared for women but useful for anyone, you can learn how to find common ground with your partner. But to do so, you first need to know what you're really seeking in a relationship. By examining what motivates yourself and your partner, you'll be equipped to answer critical questions: * If you're single, should you try meeting people in person or online? * Why in the world would someone cheat if he or she has a loving partner? * How can you fix a broken relationship? * When is it time to abandon a partner? Too often, instead of working toward a common goal, people avoid doing what they don't want to do, and they lose out on having a real partner. But when you find a true teammate, you'll be more satisfied with life and better equipped to accomplish your goals. Stop selling yourself short, and start getting what you want out of relationships with the tools, insights, and strategies in Finishing School for Women.

How to Get More Out of Your Relationship by Doing Less
Author: Scott Haltzman,Theresa Foy DiGeronimo
Pubpsher: John Wiley & Sons
Category: Family & Relationships
From the authors of the best-selling The Secrets of Happily Married Men comes the much-anticipated follow-up book The Secrets of Happily Married Women. In their first book, Dr. Haltzman and his coauthor Theresa Foy DiGeronmio outlined a recipe for men about growing a happy marriage: treat marriage with the same sense of purpose, resolve, and single-minded devotion that they have for their job. Although that workplace formula works well for men, an entirely different set of criteria resonate with women. In The Secrets of Happily Married Women, Dr. Haltzman tells us stories from real women who are happy in their relationships. These women know how to get more out of their partners by doing less, by not trying so hard to make men perfect, not dragging them to couples therapy, not expecting them to think or behave like a woman. These are women from Dr. Haltzman's clinical practice and culled from thousands of contributors to his Web site www.HappilyMarriedWomen.com. They have learned to understand how men really work and tap into men's powerful hard-wired desire to please women and "be a better man."
