Love is a skill, not just an emotion - and in order for us to get good at it, we have to practice, as we would in any other area we want to shine in.

Our research has discovered that almost a third of the British population (32%) expect their romantic relationships to be like fairy tale romances; but realistically, after a heady and passion-filled start, many of us end up in unions that are a confusing tangle of hope, distance, boredom, loyalty and betrayal. Here is a workbook containing the very best exercises that any couple can undertake to help their relationship function optimally, exercises to foster understanding, patience, forgiveness, humour and resilience in the face of the many hurdles that invariably arise when you try to live with someone else for the long term.

Couples are guided to have particular conversations, analyse their feelings, explain parts of themselves to one another and undertake rituals that clear the air and help recover hope and passion. The goal is always to unblock channels of feeling and improve communication. Not least, doing exercises together is - at points - simply a lot of fun.

***What readers are saying***

"Amazing, interactive, insightful and overall helpful."

"My fiance and I loved doing this workbook. Some of the sections of the workbook didn't necessarily fit our lifestyle/needs as a couple, but it was still fun to go through those chapters and see what we could do if any issues arose in the future. We recommend it to every couple. No matter age or relationship length. My fiance's parents (married for 20+ years) are doing it now, and already have found it helpful for their relationship."
