The Five Core Conversations for Couples

Expert Advice about How to Develop Effective Communication, a Long-Term Financial Plan, Cooperative Parenting Strategies, Mutually Satisfying Sex, and Work-Life Balance

A Top Divorce Lawyer and a Family Therapist Show You How to Really Talk—for Better or for Worse
 
Married for 33 years, David, a divorce lawyer, and Julie, a family therapist, have both been witness to families struggling with life’s most difficult challenges. At the same time, they have weathered their own challenges at home: raising four daughters, two biological and two adopted, and dealing with one child’s mental health and behavioral issues. What they’ve learned about saving a marriage or knowing when to call it quits, when to turn to professionals or when to try tough love, could fill a book—and it does. 
 
The Five Core Conversations for Couples tackles every corner of relationships with the wisdom, knowledge, and best advice culled from David and Julie’s unique personal and professional experiences, organized topically into the five core reasons that people come to their offices. Topics include:

  • Disability
  • Abuse
  • Serious illness
  • Estrangement
  • And much, much more
Take a look inside the hearts and minds of two marriage professionals to gain a fresh perspective into your own relationships and to have valuable and more frequent conversations with those you love. 

"Julie and David have the same conversations and arguments that so many couples have and are not afraid to share them publicly and vulnerably! Readers will enjoy their candid and humorous exchanges." —Rabbi Shlomo Slatkin, M.S., LCPC, founder of TheMarriageRestorationProject.com
