Item description for Love Busters: Overcoming Habits That Destroy Romantic Love by Willard F.Jr. Harley...
Overview Overcoming habits that destroy romantic love--selfish demands, annoying habits, angry outbursts, disrespectful judgments, independent behavior, and dishonesty.
Marriage expert Dr. Harley identifies 6 Love Busters that pull marriages apart and shows how you and your spouse can learn to avoid them. You will see that once Love Busters are eliminated, conflicts over friends and relatives, career choices, financial planning, children, or sex will be much easier to resolve. Even infidelity or substance abuse can be overcome when Love Busters are defeated.
The strength of your marriage depends on the passion you share for each other. So stop destroying your feeling of love and discover, instead, how to build your love with care and time.

This can save your marriage Apr 16, 2008
This book saved my marriage. Everything that I had been trying to say for years was finally said by an expert and not me. My spouse was able to read and understand through the book and he was not able to argue about what the book said, like he would have done had it been only me saying those things. I also learned a lot about my own destructive habits (lying was one of my big ones... "Are you mad?" "No, I'm not mad, everything is ok" when in fact it wasn't).
My suggestion is that you read it together, or have one person start reading it and writing comments into the book as you recognize yourselves in it. Then when the other partner starts to read it they too should write comments into the book as well. Later you should both go through it together to read the added comments and use those as talking points.
I also feel that if your marriage is in really bad shape that you read this book first because you HAVE to stop the "love bank withdrawals"... they are causing your marriage to go bankrupt. Once you have a handle on your withdrawals then your deposits (His Needs Her Needs) will finally be able to accumulate to the point of causing positive change. You can make as many deposits as you like, but everyone knows from life even that if you don't control your withdrawals that you can easily overdraft your account.
If you are struggling in your marriage, READ THIS BOOK!
Our Marriage Isn't Falling Apart... Sep 11, 2007
After 8yrs of dating and 4yrs of marriage, our relationship had become...well, boring. Our date nights, if we had them, were typical dinner and a movie. Something was definitely missing. A church marriage counsellor recommended this book along with The 5 Love Languages. It is a must read for BOTH spouses. Do not expect results with only one partner reading and/or applying it!
Great Book! Mar 18, 2007
This book is written so it is very easy to understand,no overload of hard to understand words. It has great ideas and solutions for marital problems. You will find much help in it. I can't wait to read HIS NEEDS, HER NEEDS: BUILDING AN AFFAIR PROOF MARRIAGE. I can highly recommend this book!
Excellent book for couples! Mar 12, 2007
If you are thinking about buying this book or any other relationship book - do not delay! Dr. Harley's books (including His Needs, Her Needs) have been very helpful to my marriage following a crisis. He makes excellent points that somehow seem to reach both of us and explains things in a way that both of us understand without either one feeling hurt or attacked. It is a terrific book, and I believe anyone who reads it and adopts it in their marriage will see improvement.
