Teaser Tuesday: The Proper Care and Feeding of Marriage

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

1. Grab your current read.
2. Open to a random page.
3. Share two “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page.
4. BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!).
5. Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My Teaser:

The Proper Care and Feeding of Marriage
My three decades of experience dealing with people struggling with intimacy tells me that too much of marital therapy is dealing with marital structure, disappointments, and disenchantments with one's spouse, and not enough on understanding the dueling inner dynamics of spouses. By "inner dynamics" I mean the complex web of the impact of their earlier family experiences tangled up with their repetitive, and largely unproductive, ways of handling real and/or imagined fear and hurt. - pg. 50, The Proper Care and Feeding of Marriage by Dr. Laura Schlessinger
