"Between old-fashioned and "open marriage" packed with common (or uncommon) good sense, the author.. presents the "Viscott Prescription" for establishing, nurturing and saving a relationship with a loved one, spouse or friend.
Believing that commitments are not made to be broken, but do need to be renewed so that neither partner impedes teh other's growth, Dr. Viscott offers an eminently practicable bill of rights for couples, for children, for parents.
In warm, pithy, down to earth fashion, Dr. Viscott, talks to couples about sexual fidelity ("the best kind of relationship is one where both partners have the right to become involved with anyone they choose, but choose instead to intensify their relationships to each other"); breaking up (what to do when all else fails and how to profit from it so to make the next one last); how to understand each other's needs (make inventory of your thoughts and review with your partner)...
How to live with another person speaks directly to pressing couple-needs widely shared, and does it with grace, simplicity and sensibility.
