Summary

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 midlife stresses of "manopause," irritable male syndrome, and male-type depression, and follow your calling in stage five to make a real difference in the world.

Decent enough

I enjoyed this - and I listened to it all although did drift off in some parts - some good ideas and some well made points and certainly a good few take outs which I will be able to learn and take action from - certainly worth a listen

Enlightening

I found this book amazing and applicable to all relationships and interactions. Connecting behavior and biology in an unbiased way was exceptional. I wish I read it earlier in life.

Not about marriage

Too much preaching about the environment. This book was a waste of time and I don’t recommend it

Too much stuff!

Author tried to write a book about everything not too much of everything equals nothing in the end. Beginning was promising but he unfortunately only lightly touches the topic of marriage...
