With a focus on self-empowerment and resilience, this refreshing and witty relationship guide has a reassuring counterintuitive message for unhappy spouses: you only need one partner to initiate far-reaching positive change in a marriage.<BR><BR>Conventional wisdom says that “it takes two” to turn a troubled marriage around and that both partners must have a shared commitment to change. So when couples can’t agree on how—or whether—to make their marriage better, many give up or settle for a less-than-satisfying marriage (or think the only way out is divorce).<BR> <BR>Fortunately, there is an alternative.<BR> <BR>It Takes One to Tango is a groundbreaking guide that shows how one determined partner—acting alone—can spark lasting, significant change in a marriage, often accomplishing change that cannot be made any other way. It doesn’t matter how short-fused, argumentative, or seemingly impossible your partner can be—or how long you’ve been stuck.<BR> <BR>Marriage and family therapist Winifred Reilly has this message for struggling partners: Take the lead. Doing so is effective—and powerful. Through Reilly’s own story of reclaiming her now nearly forty-year marriage, along with anecdotes from many clients she’s worked with, you’ll learn how to:<BR> <BR>-Focus on your own behaviors and change them in ways that make you feel good about yourself and your marriage<BR> -Take a firm stand for what truly matters to you without arguing, cajoling, or resorting to threats<BR> -Identify the “big picture” issues at the basis of your repetitive fights—and learn how to unhook from them<BR> -Be less reactive, especially in the face of your spouse’s provocations<BR> -Develop the strength and stamina to be the sole agent of change<BR> <BR>Combining psychological theory, practical advice, and personal narrative, It Takes One to Tango is a fresh and engaging guide that will empower those who choose to take a bold, proactive approach to creating a loving and lasting marriage.
