Abstract:

Are you ready to find The One? Many single adults will readily admit that they hope to be married someday. But how can you make sure that a marriage will last a lifetime? According to Dr. Bill Harley, lasting romance isn't about finding the right person; it's about creating the right relationship. In The One, Dr. Harley will help you discover the truth of what makes a relationship work and what makes it fall flat. It's really all a matter of attitude. Relationship attitude, that is. There are three types of attitudes you'll find inside: freeloading free spirits, wait-and-see renters, and committed buyers. Healthy relationships should pass through all three stages, but it's easy to get stuck in a rut along the way. Ready to move from attraction to a lasting love worth investing in? Find out how to make it happen in The One. - Back cover.
