Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ken thinks he and Becky are just having fun together. Becky is already picking out bridesmaid dresses.

Melissa has decided to break up with Tony. Tony thinks Melissa is “the one.”

Are miscommunications like this unavoidable? What’s the best way to end a relationship–or to take it to a more serious level?

Chances are, you’ve heard of “The Talk.” Every romantic relationship comes to the point where things need to be defined or redefined: Do we become romantically exclusive? Is our relationship ready (or not ready) to move to the next level? What are our boundaries and expectations? Is it possible to “just be friends”?

Getting all the cards on the table. Communicating openly and honestly. It sounds like a great idea, right? The tough question is, how do you communicate in a way that significantly benefits you both–and doesn’t leave you dreading those important conversations in the future?

In Define the Relationship, you’ll find everything you need to know about positively defining and redefining your current or future dating relationships. Written in light of the complexities of dating today, this long-needed resource will help you avoid painful and confusing dating dilemmas and experience instead the freedom of well-defined, spiritually grounded, and truly rewarding relationships.

From the Trade Paperback edition.
