Reseña del editor
We live in a time when romantic relationships can change rapidly: we are not as bound to them by necessity as were our ancestors. But how do you get through the disruption, pain, and fear of the unknown when you’ve relied on a relationship to anchor and define you? Psychologist Kathryn Foster guides you into discovering serenity and feeling good about your new life. She asks you to feel deep inside to know what you need in your relationship. Trust yourself to know. If a relationship ends, you’ll be okay. In fact, you have some surprises in store: autonomy and solitude can feel very good. Transcendence, spiritual growth and living genuinely are your new treasures. Maybe your relationship is in tact but changing. It needs a restructuring and you want to drop some old roles and obligations. Cleanse yourself of old expectations and find yourself again. Acknowledge the limits of romance, and learn to speak up on your own behalf. Perhaps you are moving from tribalism to individualism. Maybe you’re taking a second look at romance and marriage and are seeking something different. To do that, you will have to learn to sit with your feelings, quiet your run-a-way ego, embrace change, and see romance as symbolic. This book will make you stronger. Most importantly, you will find your way back to yourself.

“Your body may tell you it’s time to leave. Our bodies speak to us because they’re connected to our right brain and thus to our feeling selves,” says Kathryn. For me, these words speak volumes and bring me into the reality of relationships and why they do change. When Your Relationship Changes by Kathryn Foster, Ph.D. answers questions such as if marriage should be full of wedded bliss, then why doesn't it last forever? When you are in the dating phase, are you dealing with the real person or their representative? Do opposites really attract and is it the recipe for a good marriage? One thing to take away from reading When Your Relationship Changes by Kathryn Foster, Ph.D. is that it's not your fault and could be a blessing in disguise.
Dr. Foster highlights many crucial truths. For example, she explains how the original two people who fall hopelessly in love are usually NOT the same two people in years to come. There must be the awareness that life happens, and as it happens, we all evolve. A healthy relationship must expect this and allow for it. She describes how many women seek "better than the best" type of emotional bonding they have ever experienced. Their mate may likely not be able to provide this unfailingly.
She shines a spotlight on the unspoken premises, in many relationships, regarding the division of responsibilities. Unfortunately, many women assume a majority of responsibility for the children, the house, the family calendar and their own jobs outside the home. This is often a recipe for relationship burn-out.
Dr. Foster also points the the following phenomena. If ,and when, a relationship dies, the tendency is for society and the partners to see this a shameful failure. She proposes that it is time to stop villainizing the process that happens in approximately 50 % of all marriages.
The part of the book I find especially priceless, is Dr. Foster's encouragement to the single woman, who finds herself alone in the aftermath of an ended relationship. Her book gives detailed steps - and amazing inspirations - for day to day healing after divorce or break-up. She provides a roadmap to "love addicts" to re-build their identity and let go of bitterness. Her guidelines seem to echo Alanon's rock solid philosophy of compassionate acceptance of fact we can only change ourselves. My favorite quote of the book is found on page 73. "To fail to accept our own aloneness is to render ourselves needy."
This book gives countless people permission to be human, freedom from dogma, a prescription for healing; normalizes the real challenges of evolving partnerships and deconstructs many of our cultural Rom-Com (romantic comedy) myths.
