Making it Through, Together: Top Relationship Advice Titles

By Julianne Jones | June 22 2020 | Nonfiction

More time at home means more time with those closest to us—including spouses, partners, and long-term significant others. For some, this increase in quality time may be a welcome change, a nice break from the combined stresses of everyday life and routines.

For others, though, the quick switch from leading independent lives to codependent habitation may have introduced new stresses into relationships—indicating potential future troubles. Some experts predict an oncoming increase in divorce filings, mirroring how rates spiked in China once societal restrictions began to loosen. Others are noting that, unsurprisingly, anxiety about current events is seeping over into personal relationships.

The titles in this collection can help readers struggling to navigate issues of new closeness. Readers may also find their advice useful in further strengthening their established relationships. Many of the included titles focus on marriage, but they could also be constructive for readers in other long-term relationships.

The New Science of Adult Attachment and How It Can Help You Find--and Keep--Love
978-1-58542-913-4
“Over a decade after its publication, one book on dating has people firmly in its grip.”—The New York TimesWe already rely on science to tell us what to eat, when to exercise, and how long to sleep. Why not use science to help us improve our relationships? In this revolutionary book, psychiatrist and neuroscientist Dr. Amir Levine and Rachel Heller scientifically explain why some people seem to navigate relationships effortlessly, while others struggle.Discover how an understanding of adult attachment—the most advanced relationship science in existence today—can help us find and sustain love. Pioneered by psychologist John Bowlby in the 1950s, the field of attachment posits that each of us behaves in relationships in one of three distinct ways:    • Anxious people are often preoccupied with their relationships and tend to worry about their partner's ability to love them back.   • Avoidant people equate intimacy with a loss of independence and constantly try to minimize closeness.    • Secure people feel comfortable with intimacy and are usually warm and loving.Attached guides readers in determining what attachment style they and their mate (or potential mate) follow, offering a road map for building stronger, more fulfilling connections with the people they love.
