To Understand Each OtherWhen I got married, a dear friend in Nashville, a wise sage friend of mine, sent me a book 'To underestand each other" by Paul Tournier a swiss psychologist. It was written in 1952, so it is dated a bit, generally referring to women as only working at home, but he does not make women less equal partners, it was just the climate and culture he was writing in, so it didn't offend me.
Anyway, I took the time to read it the last week and it is outstanding. Parts of it made me cry b/c they were so intensely true about how important it is to understand your partner and how easy itis to not do that. It's only 60 pages and I asked Mickey that he read it. He said he would. Although this is a Christian dr, and he does use spirituality in parts of it, he doesn't push a certain belief system, nearly saying that he feels you must nuture the spiritual part of your relationship for it to work. I'll type in an excerpt of a good passage later today.
