Falling out of love does not have to mean the end of your relationship - Andrew G. Marshall shows you why not.
Five years ago the occasional couple would present themselves at Andrew G. Marshall's therapy office after one partner had confessed: 'I love you, but I'm not in love with you.' These couples might describe each other as their best friend, or admit that they had become more like a brother and sister, except that most were still having sex. In essence, the partnership had become defined by companionship rather than passion, and companionship was no longer enough.
In recent years, however, more and more couples have complained to Andrew of the same problem - almost one in four. Discovering an absolute lack of research into 'I love you but ...', marriage counsellor and writer Andrew devised his own unique and highly successful approach. In 'I Love You But I'm Not in Love With You', he shares his insights into what brings a couple to this pivotal point and the seven steps that can make it a step forward. By looking at how a couple communicate, argue, show love and affection, foster a sense of play, take responsibility, give and learn, he offers a reassuring and empowering map for how two individuals can better understand themselves and each other, and forge a bond that is stronger than ever.
As Andrew says, 'the most common question people ask when they hear about my work is 'is it really possible to fall back in love?' My answer is always the same: an emphatic yes.' 'I Love You But I'm Not In Love With You' explains how.
