JennyLeavenworth WAAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5This book really helped my marriageDecember 14, 2012JennyLeavenworth WAAge: 45-54Gender: femaleI had tried many marriage books, but this book really helped me to see how much anger I was bringing to our marriage. I fit the vacillator profile. Seeing how I was contributing to problems helped me to have more patience and advocate for myself in a more productive way. I can't say everything is perfect yet: I've got a lot to work on, but things are much calmer as I've been able to recognize how much of the turmoil came from within me.
