“Unless the decision is made for us, at some point we choose to live with our partner. It’s so exciting early on to think of being with that one person every day, but the excitement can wear off. Sometimes it takes years to notice the change, sometimes it’s just a matter of weeks. It’s not easy living with someone; in fact, it can be incredibly hard – even if you like them.”
Separately Together: The Key to Understanding Your Relationship is a book that everyone should read, but only if they’re ready to be honest about who they are and what they want. Living with someone and being in a relationship does not come easy, unless you choose not to think about it. A lot of relationships don’t work or they just end up in a very different place to where they began; they rarely reflect our romantic ideals. Relationships are important; however, being reliant on someone else for happiness means that there’s a good chance of always being disappointed.
Separately Together examines the motives behind relationships, how people choose one another, why relationships change and sometimes break down, and what can be done about it. Living with someone 24/7 may not always be the best option, whereas separateness can actually strengthen long term happiness. Often seeming to be totally different species, this book shows how men and women think when it comes to relationships and sex. Separately Together is therefore an essential read to support our relationship journeys.
Clear, concise, and reassuring, Separately Together will appeal to anyone who is interested in understanding who they are, and more about the relationship they’re in (or contemplating to be in) by examining the meaning of romantic love.Separately Together offers help to those who are unsure about how they feel, and who are perhaps reluctant about confiding in someone.
