Breaking The Cycle Marriage Book | Paul Friedman

Hi, my name is Paul Friedman. I founded
The Marriage Foundation and I also wrote Breaking the Cycle. It’s my second book
and the reason that I wrote it was because I had this great idea of
teaching therapists the ideas and the methods that I use very successfully
and it worked. I mean I there’s a lot of counselors now who exclusively use the
material that we have and so Breaking the Cycle goes into really good depth of
explanations for the topics that are in there and the topics are broad. The book
is mostly useful because it covers marriage as a whole. It doesn’t just go, “Oh you have a communication problem learn the language of love,” or “Oh, you
don’t understand your husband or your wife so read this book about men being
from two son and women being from Pittsburgh.” It encompasses everything and
it’s based on a strong philosophy that you got married to be happy but you’re
not doing what it takes to be happy and the reason why you’re not is because
it’s so vague. Most people don’t even go “Well, I got married to be happy,”
most people don’t say that but you should, you should say that and then you
have to ask the second question, “Well what will make me really happy,” and that
is learning to love unconditionally so you might say I built out the whole
framework around that philosophy. Additionally, I don’t play games with
romance by saying, “Oh, we have to do it together.”
No, it’s an individual path but when you make the effort, and I show
you how, it will have a very beautiful reciprocal impact and so this is what
the book is all about. It’s a great book and if you take a look at the reviews
you’ll see a lot of people have aligned themselves with it. A lot of marriage
counselors use it to back up what they do but get the benefit from it. OK –
blessings to you, blessings to your spouse and blessings to your family.
Thank you!
