Change the relationship you have into the one you want.

Welcome to the Relationship Revolution! Making Marriage Simple is the accessible, essential road map to building a strong marriage in the modern world. Bestselling authors Harville Hendrix and Helen LaKelly Hunt distill into ten essential truths what they've learned about how to create a successful and satisfying relationship—both from their decades of “R&D” in the marriage lab of their workshops, and from their own relationship journey.  In each chapter, Harville and Helen introduce a simple truth—such as “a frustration is a wish in disguise,”  “incompatibility is grounds for marriage,” or “conflict is growth trying to happen”—and then walk couples through easy yet effective exercises to help them apply each truth in real life, every day.

Harville and Helen have spent their careers helping couples transform their marriages through research, workshops, and counseling. But marriage—even for marriage experts—is never easy, and a number of years ago they found themselves on the brink of divorce. Harville and Helen put themselves back through the exercises they’d coached so many other couples through, saving their marriage and helping them achieve a true partnership.

This book is for all couples.  It offers the practical tools needed to transform one’s relationship into a rewarding and joyous marriage.  Written with humor, compassion, and honesty, and illustrated throughout with engaging line drawings, Making Marriage Simple is a strategic blueprint for creating a stronger, more satisfying partnership in today's world.

A companion workbook to the critically acclaimed relationship book
Receiving Love: Transform Your Relationship by Letting Yourself Be Loved

In 2004, Harville Hendrix and his wife, Helen LaKelly Hunt, co-creators of Imago Relationship Therapy, authored Receiving Love, a critically acclaimed guide to cultivating a loving, long-lasting relationship that Publishers Weekly called "intelligent and insightful . . . wise and sophisticated." Now, in the Receiving Love Workbook, Hendrix and Hunt have constructed a companion to that groundbreaking book in which they outline a simple, practical plan that will help you to apply the advice and exercises in Receiving Love to your own relationship.

Receiving Love showed that while many men and women know how to give love, many more undermine their relationships by never having learned how to accept it. The Receiving Love Workbook will help you and your partner to explore the effect that this type of self-rejection has had in your individual lives and in your relationship as a couple. It contains a unique twelve-week course designed to help you work through the exercises in Receiving Love. It provides the same step-by-step instructions and examples that couples who participate in a couples' workshop or work with an Imago Relationship Therapist would experience.

For those who are ready to take specific steps to surmount the self-rejection and heal its causes, the Receiving Love Workbook will help you to make the changes that will establish an easy, natural pattern of giving and receiving love and that will create the relationship of your dreams.
