The mental exercises the authors have you go through are very interesting and very revealing of some of the sources of one's subconscious or "old brain" habits. My partner and I did them all but we did not commit to some of the primary promises i.e. - agree to not divorce until you've tried the romance-habits for 4-6 weeks. BUT what they never really give you in the book is the option to "break up", and sometimes that's exactly what should happen. I believe two people can still love each other and not be able to continue on the same path. An end is just a new beginning after all.
This book helped me realize what I want out of a relationship, and why I feel shame when the dishes aren't done. My (now ex) partner complained there was too much Christian overtones. I thought it was more Freudian than anything. But that doesn't matter now: I read what I want, when I want, and I don't have to feel bad about anything because I AM MY OWN MAN!
You should try it.
It has helped me grow considerably. Wish I had read it years ago, this is like a must read manual for love.
